Today marks the tenth anniversary of popular teen comedy "Mean Girls," which developed a cult following in the years after its 2004 release despite low box office rankings. The worldwide gross for 'Mean Girls' was just $129 million, 7 times less than the number one film of 2004, 'Shrek 2'. Still, "Mean Girls" found its niche on the Internet and in memes, and Tina Fey is talking about a "Mean Girls" musical that she hopes will be released before the film's 15th birthday.
