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

You know, you really shouldn't let people fill out applications if you don't want them to actually try to get a job here. No, no, that's all I have to say.

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.
