In girl world (or honestly, in any world), Mean Girls is still one of the best films ever made.
I know what I said, and I’m sticking to it. Beauty brands are lining up to create products around the film and I’m all about that.
Which is why, up until today, I’d have said you couldn’t do much to make Mean Girls better. Between Burn Books, teen house parties and a much-copied Jingle Bell Rock dance, the writers and producers pretty much nailed it.
Ummm … until they decided to cut a genius scene, that is.
I think it’s fair of me to say that Damian is portrayed as Janis Ian’s sidekick in the film – sure, he wants revenge on the plastics too … but it’s not so personal for him. So for the most part, we see Janis doing the ‘bring down the plastics’ planning in the finished movie.
But in this new scene, discovered by Refinery29, the tables are turned (literally) when Damian sneaks into the school canteen to stealthily unscrew a table, with the intention of publicly embarrassing Regina George. Watch below:
Cady is involved too, of course – she can be seen laying out a tray of spillable food ready to land on her nemesis. But when Regina gets waylaid by Aaron Samuels, Karen takes her seat instead and ends up covered in a big mess.
Regina literally points and laughs at her friend, proving that she’s the ultimate wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Considering each of the girls’ parts fit perfectly with this clip – Cady the discreet saboteur, Karen the dopey friend and Regina the bitchy ‘bestie’ – it seems unfortunate that it was cut.
TBH, I’m just glad it has resurfaced, but kinda wishing Damian stole Prom Queen from everyone.
