Storyline

Romy and Michele 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 Movie Guy-27

Trivia

In one scene, Christy played a trick on Michelle by putting magnets on her back brace. The actress who played Christy, Julia Campbell, wore a back brace in real life when she developed scoliosis at age 11. At 15, she had to have corrective surgery when her spine started cutting into her right lung. She has since recovered but cannot partake in any physical activities that puts pressure on her spine.

Goofs

At the Versace boutique, the manager says, "I don't think we'll be requiring any new staff". The joke is that Michele doesn't understand the last word because of his "big accent", but she re-words his sentence completely, "You're not taking on any what?" which would indicate that she did, in fact, understand him.

Cheryl: I don't believe it!
Christie: What?
Cheryl: THAT!
Kelly: They're back!
Christie: Nice outfits. Post-it's must be really lucrative!

Romy: Oh yeah, Michele. I am SO sure!

Romy: What the hell is your problem, Christie? Why the hell are you always such a nasty bitch? I mean, okay, so Michele and I did make up some stupid lie! We only did it because we wanted you to treat us like human beings. But you know what I realized? I don't care if you like us, 'cause we don't ...

"Romy & Michele's High School Reunion" is all about Sorvino and Kudrow as a couple of best friend ditzes who have supported each through and since school and are confronted with their first high school ten year reunion. This female frolic depends entirely on the audience buying into the fun and funniness of the two leads and their nonstop blonde moments. The rest of the film is the usual high school reunion gig with all the stereotypes in place and the usual morals about just being yourself, being happy with who you are, being real, etc. Personally, I adored this flick but then I love "Adventures in Babysitting", "Sixteen Candles", and "Hollywood Knights" which requires going to a whole different place in your head to get away from "Gone With the Wind", "Citizen Kane", and "2001 A Space Odyssey". "Clueless" for the adult dating distaff. Fun, fun, fun. (B)
