6. Cady’s perfect American accent:
Ok. I can’t bash this movie because it’s one of my favorites of all time, but I’ve always wondered why Cady didn’t have an accent. My friend grew up in Africa (and was homeschooled) from 5-15 and even she had a bit of an accent when she came to the US.
9. Mrs. George’s iron breasts:
The part when Cady is first introduced to Regina’s mom, and she’s holding the little dog, and it starts to bite her nipple, and she has no reaction? Breast implants do NOT inhibit sensation to the nipple or any other part of the breast, and that would hurt whether you have implants or not.
10. The lack of repercussions:
I’ve always been annoyed how there was no consequence when Janis and Damien tricked Cady into skipping class by showing her the “back building.” I know at my high school you got in a hell of a lot of trouble for skipping class.
13. Who throws a vase!
When Cady has the house party and those boys start throwing the tribal vase. Like who the hell would play pass with something like that? That part just infuriated me because it’s so fucking rude for multiple reasons. Pass around a fucking pillow if you really want to throw something that badly…and AWAY from vases…
14. Ms. Norbury not knowing her own class:
When the principal introduces Cady to the class, Ms. Norbury welcomes the African American student. But she’s clearly been teaching this class for a while and should know her students. Why does she not know this girl has been in her class the whole time?
18. Aaron’s spineless return to Regina:
When Aaron takes Regina back! We don’t even get a story on why, all we know is that Regina kissed him at the Halloween party, but he didn’t seem to be OK with it. Next thing you know, they’re inseparable. Why would he take her back? Maybe an even better question, why DID he take her back?
20. The origin of the Santa dance:
Janice apparently choreographed the dance the Plastics did every year when they were all in third grade, but then the dance was super sexualized and not something her character would have come up with.

21. Cady’s bathroom lunch:
Cady eating food in a bathroom stall is gross. And I would be more self conscious about someone judging me for bringing food into a bathroom than I would be to eat alone.

22. The “jump the shark” ending:
Regina getting hit by the bus just didn’t flow with the movie and felt like a weird direction for the movie to go. It seemed like a lazy way of patching things up between Cady and Regina, not to mention, it was just completely ridiculous. There’s no way she would have survived that. I know it’s a movie, but come on.
