Every girl with a pulse has watched Mean Girls. It’s basically the chick flick of all time and has taught us valuable life lessons like the Halloween Slut Rule, the fact that “fetch” is never going to happen, and that it only counts if you see a nipple (we’re still trying to figure out what exactly “it” is).
However, let’s not forget that the movie is over a decade old, and although the world still needs a lot more Glen Cocos, times have changed. For one, Lindsay Lohan went from a grool, wide-eyed rising star to releasing sex lists and spending half her adult life in and out of court.
So what would Mean Girls be like if it had been set in 2015? Read on to find out.
