As an unsuspecting newcomer, Cady is quickly drawn into the herd mentality of high school kids and joins the popular group known as The Plastics, a group of three girls led by the cruel Regina. The movie, released in 2004, stars Lindsay Lohan as Cady and Rachel McAdams as Regina. It grossed $128 million worldwide.
