You know you’re a Mean Girls fan, when you’ve watched the move at least 100 times and have learned most of its iconic dialogues (if not all of them) by heart. But here’s the thing – the movie isn’t available on Netflix all the time and one movie is just not enough for you, so what can you do when you need a fix of Mean Girls? Simple – you watch movies just like Mean Girls. We bet you didn’t even know that they existed, did you? But keep in mind – they aren’t exactly like Mean Girls. Some take place in high school while some take place in adult life (with all the drama in high school).
Movies Like Mean Girls
The protagonist is this nerd girl but the most handsome guy in her school shows interest in her. Needless to say, the girl’s excited because this is her way out of being her school’s social pariah. BUT there’s a big catch – her parents have grounded her, which means she can’t make it to her date with the popular dude. So what does she do? The movie’s a little predictable you may say, but it’s funny and lovable, and that’s all you should care for.

Will his efforts be worth it in the end?
The Devil Wears Prada
Thinking how this qualifies as a movie like Mean Girls? Well, simple. Anne Hathaway’s character is like Cady here, while her boss Meryl Streep is the high end fashion version of Regina George.
