Actor Winona Ryder starred in the feature Heathers, which is widely seen as one of her career-defining films. She felt the 2004 feature Mean Girls, however, pulled a lot of influence from her iconic film. And Ryder expected Mean Girls to acknowledge the homage, which she believed it didn’t.

Fey is the mastermind behind the 2004 film Mean Girls. The movie was directed by Dan Waters and adapted from the book Queen Bees and Wannabes by Rosalind Wiseman. After reading the book, Fey began to work on a script based on Wiseman’s work. But after she watched Heathers, Fey noticed there were some major similarities between the two films.
