You Again stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Kristen Bell as the mother-daughter duo who find themselves pitted against both of their high school nemeses, the aunt-niece team of Sigourney Weaver and Odette Yustman. Just like the movie, we all have those high school horror stories of mean girls or bullies whose goal in life was to make our lives miserable. Share your story with SheKnows!
What happens when your brother is engaged to your high school nemesis? You know, that girl who tortured you by spreading gossip, stealing your friends — and even your boyfriend? What if the bride’s aunt also happens to be your mom’s high school nemesis? That is exactly what happens in You Again, with two generations of fun, fighting and crazy antics which makes Lindsay Lohan’s Mean Girls look tame!
High school frenemies
We all have those “frenemies” who pretended to be your BFF, only to turn around and single-handedly steal your boyfriend, along with your spot on the cheerleading team. Or maybe it was that bully who never failed to push you into your locker or trip you as you walked in front of the class.
The question is: How do you deal with high school mean girls or bullies? Do you ignore them, hoping they will move on to their next victim? Do you sharpen up your claws and confront them, hoping they will back down after they see you are not just a vulnerable victim?
Guess what? Bullies do not just go away once you leave high school. They can either return in your adult life, as is the case in You Again, or someone else can take their place in the form of that nasty co-worker — although most of the time you will get fired (or promoted, depending on where you work) for a cat fight.
