Massie Block is the leader of a small group of privileged schoolgirls who arrogantly call themselves 'The Pretty Committee'. These so-called pre-teen 'mean girls' (cynical, egotistical, selfish and narcissistic females) and their clique are respected and feared in their middle school as well as their upper class Rhode Island suburban neighborhood. But Massie's life takes an unexpected turn when her parents friends, a lower-middle class family with a self-assured daughter named Claire move into the Block's guest house and Claire threatens to undermine the superficial Massie's position of the clique.Written by
During the painting scene (around 22:19) There are paintings behind Alicia and Claire. One of them is clearly a reference to the Korean Pop group Wonder Girls, and their debut single "Irony". See more »
When Massie is in the sports area about to plays quash, the windows in the background behind her appear dark, implying that it is nighttime. When Claire and the other 3 members of The Clique leave Massie and it shows her in front of the camera with her racket and a sad look, the windows behind her are a bright blue, implying that it is daytime.

this reminds me of my step-daughter and her friends,, so we have Mean Girls meets Odd Girl Out, this time around,, i bought the book for my step daughter when she was 16. i liked this because it is realistic the way the girl that doesn't fit in is treated,, i have first hand experience with having a step daughter that was that age and went through all that stuff that goes on in the movie,, like the sleepover.. the crush on the "hot boy" at school all the goofy teenager stuff. 4 girls form a "clique" and they all have designer clothes,, they treat the new girl like crap,, especially the lead girl Massie,,she is stuck up and rich and thinks she's all that. excellent movie.
