Two summer movies to see: Mean Girls and Saved

I saw two great movies over the weekend, "Mean Girls" and "Saved."

"Mean Girls" was written by Tina Fey, the goddess of "Saturday Night Live" and it stars a bunch of SNL cast members, as well as Lindsay Lohan. Loved it. Loved it. So sharp and accurate and true.

"Saved" is a satiric look at a Christian high school and the problems that ensue when one of the students realizes he is gay and his girlfriend gets pregnant by him in a desperate bid to make him "normal." The cute kids from "Almost Famous" is in this - Patrick Fugit - and so is Mandy Moore, who proclaims she is full of God's love while hurling a Bible at her friend's back.

And McCauley Culkin! He was FABULOUS as a bitter kid who is wheelchair bound.
