Movie Info

Romy and Michelle (Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow) are two unnatural blonde bimbos who were inseperable in high school and are now living together in L.A. They learn about their 10-year high school reuninon and desperately want to go and blow everyone away with jelousy in revenge for the hell that the A-list crowd made their lives in high school. Unfortunately they have no real jobs, no boyfriends, and no accomplishements to speak of. So they borrow a car, dress in business suits and make up a story about how they invented post-it notes. Along the way they have a huge fight and end up making a fool of themselves when they are exposed for the frauds they are. That's when the two decide to just be themselves and blow everyone away with the fact that they like who they are. The jokes in the movie, as with any movie, run hot and cold, but here they come flying one after the other with little setup or room for reaction that the movie almost feels like a parody of another movie. Despite this, there are some truely hilareous moments. As usual, Garofalo is the secret backup weapon as she out-performs in her secondary role as she's done in so many other films. What sets Romy and Michele apart as characters though, is that dispite having gone nowhere after ten years, they are still friends who are closer to each other than family. How many people can claim to have that?
