Five kids are left home when their mother leaves town on a three-month vacation to Australia, only to have their geriatric babysitter die of a heart attack, leading to the eldest teen, Sue Ellen, to scam her way into taking a job at a hip Los Angeles fashion company to feed and support her needy siblings.
Romy and Michelle have been through it all including being tortured by the Popular crowd when in high school. When they receive word of a 10 year reunion, they come to realize their lives aren't as impressive as they'd like them to be. Instead of staying home they go to the reunion with business outfits, cell phones, and one heck of a bogus success story. Written by

Swear to God, sometimes I wish I was a lesbian.
Do you want to try to have sex sometime just to see if we are?
What? Yeah, right, Michelle. Just the idea of having sex with another woman creeps me out. But if we're not married by the time we're 30, ask me again.

Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino are truly great at playing ditzy blonds. "Romy and Michele's High School Reunion" does a great job of showing what high school is really like, and that one day you to can get revenge on the mean girl that bullied you. This movie is soo funny, I was literally laughing all the way through. Romy and Michele are so funny in the situations they get themselves into, and Geneane Garafalo's comedic timing is right on the money.
This is such a funny film, bring tissues-- because your eyes will start to water!
