For 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.
