I had the movie Mean Girls on while I multi-tasked at home this weekend. It was bearable as background accompaniment, despite the fact it stars Lindsay Loathsome. Still it was pretty damn lame as a comedy. A few funny lines, but a weak plot. I do cop to the fact that this line cracked me up, even though I heard it while folding laundry in the other room:
"I'm sorry I laughed at you that time you got diarrhea at Barnes & Noble."
And I do have to admit that Tim Meadows was quietly charming as the beleaguered school principal (aren't all school principals in movies beleaguered?). Meadows also guest-starred in my favorite episode of the American version of The Office, where he plays a potential customer that Michael and Jan are wooing at the local Chili's restaurant. Again, a quietly charming, very funny performance. Open note to Hollywood: cast more Meadows, please.
Quote from aforementioned episode:
Michael: Chili's is the new golf course. It's where business happens. Small Businessman Magazine.
Jan: It said that?
Michael: It will. I sent it in. Letter to the Editor.
