To promote her new Netflix film Falling for Christmas, Lindsay Lohan is releasing a cover song from the soundtrack that pays tribute to Mean Girls.
Lindsay Lohan’s Netflix Christmas Movie Fall for Christmas orchestrated the perfect tribute to her role in mean girls. In the project, Lohan’s first film role since 2019, she plays a snobbish hotel heiress who suffers from amnesia after a skiing accident and is taken care of by local lodge owner Jake (Chord Overstreet). The film will premiere on November 10 as one of the first big deals for Netflix’s annual Christmas movie season.
Lohan’s acting career has been on the back burner for a while after she opened a few beach resorts in the Mediterranean. However, she is an iconic performer who is perhaps best remembered for her starring role in the 2004 high school comedy classic mean girls. The film, which follows a young transfer student who is asked to infiltrate the popular clique known as the Plastics, also features a lot of Christmas, in a memorable sequence in which the Plastics and Lohan’s character Cady Heron perform a raunchy rendition of the classic Christmas song. “Jingle Bell Rock” at the school talent show while wearing revealing Santa outfits.
Today, Lohan released a song she sang for the Fall for Christmas soundtrack: “Jingle Bell Rock.” She performs the cover as a solo artist, without her iconic co-stars (including Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried and Lacey Chabert), although the track does feature an appearance by rapper Ali Tomineek. For fans of mean girlsthe fact that she has officially recorded the song is the culmination of nearly two decades of anticipation.
Why is Mean Girls’ “Jingle Bell Rock” scene so iconic?
While almost every scene, character and line mean girls is a favorite of several fans of the film, a scene that stands out most in the audience’s memory is Plastics’ “Jingle Bell Rock” rendition. This may be because the moment crystallizes most of the film’s beloved comedic elements in one fell swoop. In addition to using lewd shock humor while cementing the various character dynamics, the scene also features a memorable performance by Amy Poehler’s “cool mom” character filing the proceedings and dancing along.
This is followed by a memorable twist where their boombox is destroyed and Cady saves the day by a A Capella rendition of the song, a human moment that will be her last for some time as she begins to usurp some of the power of Queen Bee Regina George. With so much of the plot, character and humor of mean girls wrapped up in this one moment, it’s only natural that it’s so loved. While it’s been a long time coming, it’s also gratifying to fans that Lohan chose this special Christmas moment in her career to honor that legacy.
