The movie Mean Girls ( Mean Girls in Latin America) is one of these high school teen drama movies that no one bets on, but 18 years (2004) after it was released, it can almost be considered a classic of the first decade of the 21st century.
It is undoubtedly a very adolescent pink comedy that uses countless clichés from the American high school age, gained great relevance and is even considered “cult” for those who follow this type of tape.
This film stars Lindsay Lohan (Cady Heron), Rachel McAdams (Regina George), Lacey Chabert (Gretchen Weiners), Amanda Seyfried (Karen Smith), Lizzy Caplan (Janis Ian), as well as the participation of Tina Fey (teacher Sharon Norbury ), have marked several generations and by now have produced a ton of memes based on the film’s dialogues and discussions.
It is a very simple premise in which Cady Heron, after living her childhood in Africa, must face life in a typical United States institute, although it is not specified in which city or state it is located, it could be anywhere in the country. . By chance -and her attractive appearance- she befriends the three most popular girls in school, although she understands herself even more with another pair of less accepted friends in the cruel world of her “High School”.
Why is October 3 dressed in pink?
Within the codes that the film presents, the quartet of popular girls requires that they dress in pink on Wednesdays, so they all coordinate their outfits on that day.
However, October 3rd is a crucial date, as it is the day that Aaron (the heartthrob in the story) and Calculus classmate asks Cady “what day is it today?”, she replies ” October 3″. This casual question stirs her teenage heart, even though she knows she can’t relate to him, since she is the ex-partner of Regina George, the leader of the popular girls, also known as “the plastic ones”.
Therefore, a sum of these two elements, of the requirement of the pink outfit and the relevance of the moment in which the leading man and forbidden man of the story asks the date of the protagonist, this was marked in the fans so that on the 3rd of October is known as “Mean Girls Day”.
It should be noted that it had a very acceptable success both at the box office in the United States and globally. During its opening week it managed to collect around 24.4 million dollars in its national market, by the end of its exhibition in theaters around the world it achieved more than 129 million greenbacks. A figure not despised for a production of 17 million dollars.
