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
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 »
Remember the prom? You got so thin by then.
Oh, I know. I was so lucky getting mono. That was like the best diet ever.

It is about two silly girls from an American high school.
In recent times many films have been made about the boring lives of American teenagers.If there is one film which has the ability to stand apart from a huge crowd of inane Hollywood teen pictures,it is surely Romy and Michele's High School Reunion.It is a perfect film which does not hesitate in attacking fake American values prevalent in high schools.It is a known fact that there is too much pressure on American high school children to succeed in all realms of life.There are many people who become a part of this system.There are some like Romy and Michelle who decide to follow their own paths.Hollywood director David Mirkin has directed a nice film about these two girls who do not take their lives seriously.It is through a great soundtrack that we are showed a not so rosy picture of the lives of disillusioned souls like Romy and Michelle.It is a nice film which teaches us that people can be happy with what they are.One has to remain true to oneself if one wants to be respected.Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino look fabulous as Romy and Michelle.
