    Tina fey was robbed of the oscar nomination for writing Mean Girls! I picked these 2 writers because both of the films are comedies and A LOT of the SNL cast members were a part of each film…. so which one do you like better? 

    MEAN GIRLS ALL THE WAY!!!

    Mean Girls absolutely. I found Bridesmaids very funny but no where near the level of phenomenon that people made it out to be. I really believe Mean girls will be come a highschool classic that people are still going to be watching in years, and I can be sitting around with friends and people will still quote Mean Girls. Bridesmaids came out like a year ago and I can’t even remember the last time it was brought up

    I’m a senior in High School and all of my classmates quote lines from the movie every day!

    Bridesmaids is way better written. Of cours Mean Girls is very well thought and its very intelligent but Bridesmaids is better crafted and it is more funny.

    Mean Girls already is a classic. The screenplay is hilarious, and is still quoted to this day. Apart from McCarthy, Bridesmaids is so overrated.

    Mean Girls. Cleverly plotted with fully rounded characters and genuinely hilarious dialogue.
    By the way, I’m familiar with the book that Fey based it on, and it should be known that this is almost 100% an original screenplay. The book is not a story, it is a self-help/parenting book. Fey crafted the storyline, characters and situations (presumably) by herself.
    Should have been nominated. Had it not been for Sideways, should have won. McAdams also should have been nominated, and had it not been for Blanchett and Madsen, should have won.

    Bridesmaids was hugely overrated. It had a generally okay screenplay and was extremely poorly acted by most of the cast except Wiig. McCarthy gave a below average performance, not even remotely worthy of an Oscar nomination. One of the worst performances to ever be nominated for an Oscar.

    As an 18 year old, I can tell you that Mean Girls gets quoted CONSTANTLY in casual conversation alone. It has made a huge impact.

    All I can say is that Travis better stop trying to make “fetch” a thing. It’s not a thing!

    Mean Girls has made such a huge impact. It’s one of the most quotable films of the 21st century. Literally every single line of dialogue can be quoted. However, Bridesmaids only came out a couple years ago. We don’t how much of an impact that movie will have also (And, on top of that, for better or worse, people are still talking about the bridal shop scene so…that should mean something).

    Both movies are hilarious. Bridesmaids, IMO, deserved to be nominated for Best Picture (in a lineup of ten of course…it would not be in my top 5). I thought either Bridesmaids or A Separation should have won Best Screenplay. Melissa McCarthy wasn’t my favorite thing about the movie (I thought Rose Byrne and Maya Rudolph were better and I actually think Wiig was the MVP but she was going lead anyway.) but I’m glad that the votes loosened up and actually nominated a genuinely comedic performance (I believe the last one since Robert Downey Jr in Tropic Thunder).

    I wish Mean Girls had gotten more recognition. I think Mean Girls should have gotten a couple Golden Globe noms (Comedy Film and Lead Actress in a Comedy). And I do believe Tina Fey should have been an Oscar nominee despite, yes, it being a very competitive year.

    Anyway…Mean Girls is the better film. But…again, I love both.
