The 2008 family drama comedy film The Clique was produced by Tyra Banks and was a film portrayal of the popular book The Clique. The plot of the story is very relatable upon preteen and teen girls out there, as it shows how difficult it is to fit in. The film had superior teen actresses which really brought their characters to life. Although the film received quite mixed reviews from movie critics, it was still enjoyed by many people all over the world.
The story follows Massie Block who is the head of a tiny group of highly privileged schoolgirls that have arrogantly called their clique 'The Pretty Committee'. All of these so-called middle school 'mean girls' (selfish, stuck up, cynical, narcissistic, and bratty females) are highly feared and respected in their school and upper class suburban neighborhood, Rhode Island. However, Massie's life experiences an unexpected surprise when her parents' close friends, a low middle class family that has a self-assured and confident daughter named Claire have moved to their guest house. Other than that, Claire threatens to join and undermine the cool yet superficial position of Massie in her clique.
The film has quite that simple lighthearted plot which can be related to simply all teenage girls. It is a great film for young women to watch, as it will teach them to be more self confident and assured about their beauty. The film may not have shown in theaters, but it was watched by many people everywhere just because it had a unique plot.
The stars of the movie were even guested on Tyra Banks' show back then, and were praised by Tyra herself stating that the girls did a very splendid job. Tyra really felt close to this film, as it is what actual teen girls are going through at this very moment. The film in itself was enjoyed by the majority of the viewers, as it was able to show what actual young women experience in middle school. The actresses really made the film look very life like, which is exactly why Tyra was very impressed with the overall film.
All in all, the film is very enjoyable to watch and is advised for all families to consider watching it one of these days.
