Goofs

It is mentioned that this movie takes place in Ohio and it is mentioned in the first movie that the story takes place in Illinois. However, the name of the school is the same in both movies. Since Ron Duvall is the school principal in both movies, it is very unlikely that Mr. Duvall moved to Ohio and is now principal to a school that happens to have the same name as his previous school.

Not really all that mean...
9 February 2011 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

"Mean Girls 2" should probably have had another title, because it really had something to live up to as the first "Mean Girls" movie was somewhat nice. "Mean Girls 2" wasn't bad, but it was just a far shot from the original movie.

The story told in "Mean Girls 2" was very easy to follow and it was quite straight forward. However, there was just something missing from the storyline, something to give the movie more depth. The end result of the story made the movie look like a shallow husk of what it could have been. And basically it was more Jo that was mean, and not the "plastics".

The cast, like the first "Mean Girls" movie, was quite good, as for teenage casting goes. Meaghan Martin, playing Jo Mitchell, sure had a lot to live up to as the lead of the movie, because Lindsay Lohan sure made her role memorable in the first "Mean Girls". Meaghan was actually doing a good job, but there was a gap between her and Lohan's performance. The other cast members were doing their roles well enough. But bear in mind that this is a teen comedy, so there is no award-winning performances.

There were some funny scenes throughout the movie, but nothing that would make you keel over laughing hard. And there were also some nice moments in the movie, such as when Jo had to face up to Abby (played by Jennifer Stone). And some of the pranks pulled in the movie were also nice enough.

In overall, "Mean Girls 2" is not a bad movie, but it is far from what the first "Mean Girls" was. And had this movie been named differently I am sure it would have fared better. It proved to be good enough entertainment, just don't get your hopes up based on the name of the movie.
