Hell Yes: ‘Mean Girls’ To Return To The Big Screen In ‘Mean Moms’ Reincarnation

mean girls dvdFor most of the mid-2000s, I could have recited entire dialogue from Mean Girls for you on demand. In particular, I could spout entire scenes and exchanges between Queen Bee Regina George and my favorite of favorite characters, the pink track suit wearing wannabe BFF “cool mom” played by Amy Poehler. But now we may get to relive the pure amazingness of the Mean Girls dynamics all over again — as Mean Moms. OH YES. Bring on the sanctimommies!

Deadline.com reports that Beth McCarthy-Miller, who once directed “Saturday Night Live,” is all set to direct her mommy-centric adaptation of Queen Bee Moms And King Pin Dads: Dealing With The Parents, Teachers, Coaches, and Counselors Who Can Make — or Break — Your Child’s Future. Said book was penned by Rosalind Wiseman, who also brought us Queen Bees And Wannabes, from which sprang the classic that is now Mean Girls.

Means Moms is reportedly not a sequel to the film that tried to make “fetch” happen. But the plot sounds just as awesome:

…a happily married mother of two moves from small town America to the high-class suburbs and is faced with confronting the cutthroat world of competitive parenting.

Let the Tiger-Mom-Helicopter-Free-Range-Sanctimommy-Competitive-Pinterest-Boarding begin. In pink track suits. Please oh please.

      I’m disappointed. Surely this would be about Amy Poehler’s character from Mean Girls, and Tina Fey would make a cameo as a character’s kid’s teacher. Puh-leeeeze.

        I am, too. It would be a great idea if it were Amy Poehler…or Rachel McAdams as a grown-up mommy version of her younger character.

        It could still be a funny movie, even if it is not technically a sequel to MGs…I will be so sad if it flops, because the idea itself is pretty priceless comedy gold if played right.

        Nah, Cady just took her rejection from Harvard really, really badly.

      If Tina Fey doesn’t write it, I don’t want to see it.

      Seriously, Queen Bees and Wannabes was an advice book, so I’m sure this mom version is as well, and it could easily have translated really, really badly to movie version. (I read it and spent my teenaged years trying really hard to be nice to compensate for the fact that I wasn’t miserable) Tina Fey even talked about how rough it was to do since there was no story and she essentially had to turn a self-help book for moms into an actual plot. Beth McCarthy-Miller is a perfectly good director, but the Dumb and Dumber writers are attached and frankly I don’t trust them.

      Yes!
