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

Hilarious!!! Great Fun!!! Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow Are Terrific!!!
31 July 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Romy and Michele's High School Reunion" is a terrific comedy that you can't miss. This film is plain fun and makes you laugh throught the movie!! Mira Sorvino is great as Romy White , as is Lisa Kudrow as the ditsy yet fun Michele, and Janeane Garfolo as the rude and moody Heather Moony. This film is a sure great comedy. If you liked "Clueless" or "Legally Blonde" this is a great film for you!!! The acting is great, and the film itself is a non-stop laughing machine!!!!! This is a great and hilarious film that keeps you laughing!! I give this film a 10 out of 10!!!! :)
