Kudrow's Michele is a deadpan delight.

Beneath the endless silliness of the movie beats a real heart

Sorvino and Kudrow work easily and wickedly together.

A one-joke story that's better crafted than it really deserves to be.

At its best when it's being lighthearted and at its weakest when it takes a halfhearted stab at semi-seriousness.

For all its bright moments, 91 minutes turns out to be more than this joke can sustain.

Audience Reviews for Romy and Michele's High School Reunion

½

Almost painful to watch. Mira Sorvino's dumb blonde act doesn't ring true to me. How do they live such an extravagant LA lifestyle without jobs? The real reunion ending makes the inane movie a little better. Mira seems like she can actually dance, and Alan Cumming is surprisingly sexy.

This movie is hilarious. Not only did I love it because Lisa Kudrow was in it but I loved it because of the humor and the characters.

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!!!! :) :) :)

Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino have THE most brilliant comic timing. I have so much fun watching this movie. This is the original Legally Blonde and all its derivatives, folks.
