‘Mean Girls’ Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary Today

Make sure you are rocking your pink today! Exactly 10 years ago, Tina Fey's high school comedy "Mean Girls" hit the big screens and started a revolution. It is still remembered until this day and quoted on a regular basis.

The film centered around Cady, played by Lindsay Lohan, who is new to her school from Africa. She befriends Janice Ian (Lizzy Caplan) and Damian (Daniel Franzese), who convince her to mess with popular clique "the plastics."

Franzese recently came out as a homosexual by penning a letter to his character, Damian.

Cady becomes obsessed with taking down their leader Regina George (played by Rachel McAdams) and eventually has her sidekicks, Gretchen (Lacey Chabert) and Karen (Amanda Seyfried) following her instead.

Chabert told the Times people tweet the word "fetch" to her "probably 100 times a day."

George's youth-obsessed mother was played by the hilarious Amy Poehler, who now stars on "Parks and Recreation."

Fey, aside from writing the script, starred alongside the teens and her best friend and Golden Globes co-host, playing math teacher Ms. Norbury.

A straight to DVD sequel, "Mean Girls 2," was released in 2011, yet the only role revived was Tim Meadow's Principal Duval. It did not receive nearly as much hype as the original.

The Daily Mail notes this was Lohan's last flick to gross over $100 million. Her co-stars went on to greater success, like McAdams in "The Notebook."

"Mean Girls" also holds a heavy celebrity fan-base, including Jennifer Lawrence, who referenced the flick in her People's Choice Awards acceptance speech:

"Thank you, fans, thank you. I wish this was like "Mean Girls" and I could just break this up and throw it at all of you, because you're all responsible," she joked when accepting her award for "Silver Linings Playbook."
