A newcomer to a Catholic prep high school falls in with a trio of outcast teenage girls who practice witchcraft and they all soon conjure up various spells and curses against those who even slightly anger them.
In this prequel to Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, it shows Romy and Michele as they graduate in 1987, and again three years later as they take on Los Angeles. For years Romy and ... See full summary »
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
Many actors in this movie played small roles in "Friends", Lisa Kudrow's most famous work. Julia Campbell and Elaine Hendrix were Ross's love interests. Vincent Ventresca played Monica's on and off boyfriend "Fun Bobby". Plus, it's common knowledge that Janeane Garofalo turned down the role of Monica. And Jennifer Aniston married Justin Theroux, who plays the cowboy in R&M. See more »
At the real reunion, after being caught telling a lie Romy says, "Now we're just a stupid joke just like we always were." One can clearly see by her lip movement that she is saying something else (possibly the 'f' word). See more »

For those of us who weren't in the "in" crowd, but turned out OK, this movie is a hoot. And the message is pretty clear: Happiness comes from within, not how successful people think you are.
Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorveno excel as to Blonds who return to their high school reunion intent on making the "Popular People" stand up and take notice. These two are the movie, and an confused appearance by Janeane Garofalo only garbles the basic plot, which isn't wide enough to absorb her. Alan Cummings bit part shows his true talent of being able to step into any role and fit in.
The only place where the movie fails is too much time with Romy and Michelle in L.A., and not enough with them at the reunion, which if written correctly could have made this laugh out loud funny.
