Trivia

  • In the scene where Cady was asked if her “muffin was buttered,” the line was originally going to be, “Is your cherry popped?” The same went for the girl who “made out with a hot dog”; this was going to be “masturbated with a hot dog.” These were omitted in order for the film to gain a PG-13 rating instead of an R
  • This was the feature film screenwriting debut for Tina Fey.
  • This was Amanda Seyfried’s first film role, playing Karen Smith.
  • Damien’s line ‘…And I want my pink shirt back!’ was improvised by actor Daniel Franzese. Tina Fey later approved it.
  • As she had a pink eye, Lindsay Lohan couldn’t arrive on the first day of shoot.
  • Regina is referred to as the Queen B. The Italian word for ‘queen’ is Regina.
  • Kevin Gnapoor’s phone number on his business card uses the North Shore’s real area code, 847.
