10 Reasons Why Mean Girls Is Legendary

It's time to give Mean Girls the praise it deserves. Today is the movie's 10th anniversary, which shows that it carries a legacy that few films from its time do. It may not have won any Golden Globes or Oscars (it was, however, nominated for a Kids' Choice Award), but it is a darn-good movie with attitude, edge, and sharp dialogue.
Mean Girls is also one of the most quoted and most rewatched comedies. The movie's references are still completely relevant in today's pop-culture landscape — even The White House capitalized on its genius. So, if cable airings of the flick don't suck you in every weekend, here are 10 reasons why Mean Girls has the ultimate staying power — besides the public's love for saying "You go, Glen Coco!"
