I’ll confess this here and only here. If Mean Girls is on television, I will always stop and watch. I could claim that it’s because I love Tina Fey’s brain and she wrote the script. Or the cast that includes Amy Poehler, Rachel McAdams, and my secret “I’d totally hold hands with you on a beach somewhere” girlfriend Amanda Seyfried. Or just Lindsay Lohan at peak hotness. It was a great story and it spoke to a lot of girls (and me, but I’ll move on before you think this is one of Dustin’s posts (that was brave for the new guy! I like the chutzpah, but now I have to drain your carotid with a rusty spigot. — DR ).
All those things about Mean Girls that I loved? Not coming back for the sequel.
Based on the book “Queen Bee Moms and King Pin Dads: Dealing with the Parents, Teachers, Coaches, and Counselors Who Can Make - or Break - Your Child’s Future” (Hereafter known as “Too Goddamn Long for Me to Type Up Again”). It’s about a mother moving to the suburbs and getting forced to fit in with the entirely different breed of Moms out there. Adam Shankman is attached to the project so maybe we can expect a song and dance number? He won’t top “Santa Baby” or even “I Am Beautiful” from the first one but I’m sure he’ll do his best to inject some jazz hands.
In a dream world, Amy Poehler would return for this while still being able to do “Parks and Rec” and maybe Mary Louise Parker could join and just stop doing Weeds forever. Hell, let’s just get the cast of “Cougar Town” (Or are we just calling it Pajiba now?)
OK ‘Jibettes. A lot of you are MILFFs (Mothers I’d Like to Friend on Facebook). Is “Tolerating Bitchy Suburban Moms” a good place to mine for some comedy? Yes? No? Share some stories in the comments.
