Trend We Dig: Girls Gone Wild(er)

Groups of women have acted badly onscreen for years (see Heathers, Mean Girls), but Bridesmaids upped the ante for outrageous female-ensemble comedy. Now a fresh crop of girl cliques are taking things further still: In Whit Stillman's new movie Damsels in Distress, a posse of pert coeds mount a bizarre crusade to better their unhygienic male classmates, while in Lena Dunham's laugh-out-loud HBO series Girls, four friends in New York City masturbate, miss abortion appointments, and taunt unworthy suitors.

And later this year, look for the Sundance hit Bachelorette, in which Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, and Lizzie Caplan snort coke and fuck in bathrooms, giving new—and thoroughly entertaining—meaning to the phrase girl trouble.
