Another Top 10 Mean Girls in Movies

There are so many big screen means girls we love to hate that we simply couldn’t fit them all on one list. Welcome to MsMojo and today we’re counting down our picks for Another Top 10 Mean Girls in Movies.

For this list, we’re focusing on those cruel, manipulative, or evil female film characters that are so awful they deserve a list of their own.

#10: Tris
“Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist” (2008)

Tris is the chalk to Nick’s cheese. She’s mean, heartless, and dumps the genuinely sweet Nick on his birthday… and throws out the mix CDs he’s made her. She unintentionally pushes Norah and Nick together when she taunts Norah about being single, but the moment she sees their connection, jealousy takes over and she decides she wants him back. Her most scheming moment is when she waits for Nick by his car and tries to seduce him with a sexy dance. However, Nick drives off, wiping whatever feelings he had for Tris away.

#9: Cokie Mason
“The Baby-Sitters Club” (1995)

Straight out of the classic bully trope, Cokie torments everyone around her because she’s insecure. She’s hardly the nicest friend to the people she supposedly likes and seems to really despise the Baby-Sitters’ Club. Her pranks are cruel, especially when she tries to get between Mary Anne and Logan. She’s just plain mean and very conceited, so we’re happy to see her get her comeuppance when Jackie Rodowsky hits a home run, which sends the ball hurtling toward Cokie as she sits in a tree.

#8: Christie Masters
“Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion” (1997)

She’s the high school ‘it’ girl who still hasn’t grown out of her mean streak. In a series of flashbacks, we see the horrible ways Christie used to torment Romy and Michele in high school and when they meet again at the reunion, it seems she’s still stuck in the past as she continues to taunt and humiliate them even ten years on. But, this time Romy and Michele walk away with their heads held high after finally confronting her and exposing her for the high school has-been she’s become.

#7: Massie Block
“The Clique” (2008)

Any group arrogantly self-titled, “The Pretty Committee” is hardly going to be anything but egotistical - and anyone who leads them is bound to be the worst of the bunch. Massie was hardly the nicest person to begin with, but her ambition to be the Queen B drives her to jealousy when Claire unsettles the status quo. Massie goes out of her way to make Claire miserable, only to end up having the tables turned on her. She’s left friendless and learns that it’s better to have no friends over many friends that hate you.

#6: Sharpay Evans
“High School Musical” franchise (2006-2008)

She’s about as mean as a pink-loving, spoiled, Disney Channel drama queen can get. Throughout the franchise, she’s selfish, self-centred, and doesn’t care who she needs to step on to get what she wants. In the first two films, her scheming and cattiness are usually directed at Troy and Gabriella, but in the third film we see her dig out her shadier moments for new girl, Tiara, only to have that backfire. While Sharpay ‘Wants It All,’ the rest of the cast prove time and time again that everything is better when they’re ‘All in This Together.’

#5: Betty Rizzo
“Grease” (1978)

Rizzo starts off as the quick-witted Pink Ladies leader and Sandy’s gentle nature just gets on her nerves. She revels in the drama when reuniting Sandy and Danny and doesn’t hesitate to make fun of Sandy during their girly sleepover. She appears uninterested in Sandy’s summer love story and interjects with snarky comments before kicking Patty off the bench. While Rizzo comes across as cold and uncaring, this bad girl wins major sympathy points when she confesses that she’s really just trying to cover up her insecurities.

#4: Vivian Kensington
“Legally Blonde” (2001)

They say you should never judge a book by its cover, but it’s Elle’s shiny, pink exterior that rubs Vivian up the wrong way when they first meet. Well, that and probably that she’s Warner’s ex. For most of the film, she’s pretty nasty to Elle, excluding her from their study group, trying to humiliate her at a party, and accusing her of sleeping her way to the top. However, by the end of the film, even Vivian can’t resist Elle’s charm and the two become best friends, leaving Warner a distant memory.

#3: Hilary Faye
“Saved!” (2004)

Her holier-than-thou attitude might have you fooled, but as soon as anyone challenges her faith, Hilary Faye sheds her sheep’s clothing and exposes herself for the mean girl she truly is. Self-righteous, judgemental, intolerant, and hypocritical, she’s an awful friend and an even worse sister with no patience for her disabled brother, who she cares for reluctantly. When prom doesn’t pan out as she hoped, she crashes her car into a Jesus effigy in a fit of rage, causing his head and her world views to come tumbling down.

#2: Jennifer Check
“Jennifer’s Body” (2009)

Jennifer isn’t just your average selfish, narcissistic, popular cheerleader. Yeah, she may not have been the nicest before being offered up as a sacrifice to Satan, but once she becomes possessed by a demon, she is so much worse. Superhuman strength, speed and the power of levitation might sound ideal, but since she must feed on human flesh to survive, no one is safe. The film takes the idea of the sexual predator to a new level since Jennifer seduces guys before feeding on them to keep herself strong.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are some honorable mentions.

“My Summer of Love” (2004)

Amber Mariens
“Clueless” (1995)

Madison Morgan
“The DUFF” (2015)

#1: Heather Duke
“Heathers” (1988)

Just when the students of Westerburg thought the tyranny was over, Heather Duke’s reign of terror begins. She’s verbally and mentally abusive and her cruelty knows no bounds. After Heather Chandler’s death, she becomes the new alpha, ruling with an iron fist - and no one, not even Heather McNamara, is off limits as a victim of her ruthlessness. As quickly as her hold on the school begins, it also ends however, as Veronica decides to free the school from the hands of the mean girl once and for all.
