I'm not going to deny it, 'Mean Girls' is in my top 5 favorite movies. I've watched it over 10 times and I'll probably watch it some more.
So when I was channel surfing and ended up on 'Mean Girls 2,' it was like an hour a half train wreck that I couldn't stand to watch nor turn away. How they took Tina Fey's masterpiece and turned it into a wretched pile of filth is beyond me. The only returning cast member is Tim Meadows and his performance was amateurish compared to the first. Don't know how his agent suckered him into it, all of 'The Ladies Man' money is gone, 'The Ladies Man'!?!?
Thankfully, I've come across two foreign films that I've enjoyed much: 'Les Aventures Extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec' and 'Beneath Hill 60.'
'Les Aventures Extraordinaires' could be described as a fantasy, mystery; its based on a series of graphic novels. It doesn't hurt that its French, I'm pretty sure an American adaptation would have ruined it.
'Beneath Hill 60' is based on the true story of an Australian mining outfit during WWI. Its a very unique and intriguing look at trench warfare. It isn't gruesome and action-packed like 'Saving Private Ryan' but it is just as good.
With French and Australian accents, you can't go wrong.
