Romy and Michele's High School Reunion Reviews
Michele: You had gotten really thin by then.
Romy: I know. I was so lucky getting mono, that was like the best diet ever.
Love this movie and would recommend it if you love to laugh like I do. Just Great! Lisa Kudrow Rox! Don't Miss Out! Such a fun movie & the music rocks! :) I love it!!!! :) :) :)
It is by no means a deep or meaningful film, but it is such good fun, and I just sit there laughing every time, even though I know what is coming and could probably quote the whole thing before they say it.
Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow are perfect as Romy & Michele - two best friends since high school facing the grim realisation that their lives aren't "actually that impressive", and trying very hard to impress their old high school enemies, getting into many situations and scrapes along the way. The end moral of this is be yourself, and really, these characters are so great, you wonder why they would want to be anyone else to start with.
The supporting cast is also excellent. I love Jacob Vargas as Ramon, and Julia Campbell's bitchy Christie (didn't we all know a girl or two like her back in high school?!). Also Janeane Garofalo, Alan Cumming and Elain Hendrix - really I can't fault any of them.
I really don't care how many people say this is a bad movie, as far as I am concerned, it is a classic!
Both ladies (Kudrow and Sorvino) find out while living in CA that the big 10 yr High School Reunion is around the corner. Since being the black sheep of the class they want to go back and show everyone who is the most improved women of the class. My fav scene is the dream sequence both main chatacterrs have since they are fighting...all I have to say is I AM THE MARY...YPU ARE RHODA!!! lol
