Hindsight, they say, is 20/20. There are past experiences and moments that you see clearer and, perhaps, even in a different light once time has passed. That's true for most things in life, including the movies we enjoyed when we were younger. Some of them we may have regarded as life-changers or contributors to our growth — movies that triggered our social and personal awakenings. But do these films remain as good as when we first saw them or are they better over time? We watched Mean Girls, a cult favourite film amongst millennials, after almost a decade since it came out. Here's what we think of it now.
On a lighter note, there were so many jokes in the movie that I didn't catch when I first saw them. It made the movie even more special to me now. While there was the lesson about girls working together instead of pitting themselves against each other, I appreciated that it was presented in a lighthearted manner. Overall, Mean Girls is a cult classic for a reason, and it will remain so for decades to come.
