70. June 4, 2010 - Mean Girls (2004)

This movie is fantastic and hilarious, not because of Lindsey Lohan, but rather in spite of her. The reason that it works so well is that it was written (adapted from a non-fiction work on cliques and teenage girls) by Tina Fey, who is brilliant. She also co-stars in the film, along with a handful of other SNL alumni (the funniest of which is Amy Poehler as the ultimate plastic surgery mom). This may have been considered Lohan's breakout film, but if you look at the way her career has gone as compared to that of co-stars Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried, I think it's safe to say that this was the launch of several people. Plus, McAdams and Seyfried became stars despite playing a very unlikeable villain and one of the dumbest characters ever onscreen respectively.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
