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.
This time around it's 1987, and new high school graduates Romy and Michele are desperate to get away from their hometown of Tucson, Arizona. Their goal is to leave their square town behind ... 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 »

Wow, all that time you guys were making my life hell, the A group was doing the same thing to you! I had no idea!
You know? I bet in high school, everybody made somebody's life hell.
Nope, sorry, never had the opportunity.
I bet that's not true...
Oh, yeah, you were really unpleasant.

My sister and I originally rented this film when I was 9/10 years old. Since then I have watched it possibly 20 times. Its one of the funniest films I've seen and is not only a great flashback of the 80s [Although not a damn patch on 13 GOING ON 30] but a hilarious bimbo movie, possibly the best if it weren't for 2004's MEAN GIRLS.
This is an endearing, funny, mean, warm movie about the innocence of being a bimbo and its negatives and positives. Lisa Kudrow is especially comfortable in this role thanks to Pheobe.
It's not exactly high brow humour, but the laughers and great characters of the 97 set picture not only bring back memories of the 1990s now but it also lets us all know that we shouldn't accept the crap of todays Hollywood. Brilliant [A]
