Meanwhile Rosalind Wiseman, who wrote the self-help book, Queen Bees and Wannabes, that Mean Girls is based on, was shocked at how accurately Fey and the cast created the perfect tone: "I didn't know it was going to be a big movie. But the first time I saw Rachel in the rough cut, I could not believe how good she was. My mom was with me, and I remember turning to her and saying, 'I can't believe how perfectly she got every mean girl I've ever worked with,'" she said.
