Trivia

In the scene where Cady was asked if her "muffin was buttered," the line was originally going to be, "Is your cherry popped?" The same went for the girl who "made out with a hot dog;" this was going to be "masturbated with a hot dog." These were omitted in order for the film to gain a PG-13 rating instead of an R.

Goofs

At the end of Kevin's rap, when the man says, "Thank you Kevin, that's enough," the guy on stage in the green shirt is on Kevin's right. In the next shot, when Kevin says, "Happy holidays, everybody," the guy in the green shirt is on Kevin's left. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Chip Heron: This is your lunch, OK? I put a dollar in there so you can buy some milk; you can ask one of the big kids where to do that.
Betsy Heron: Do you remember your phone number? I wrote it down for you just in case. Put it in your pocket, I don't want you to lose it. OK? You ready?
Cady: I think so.

This movie is an easy one to enjoy over and over again. I think how funny you find the story is relative to your age. As someone newly out of high school, I can tell you that the high school clicks portrayed in this film are a bit far-fetched. I have never heard someone say "you can't sit with us" or of being called "too gay to function". This movie is still simply witty and smart with a story line that is far different from the main stream movies that come out today.
