"Have a Romy and Michelle Day!"
18 September 2001 | by (Chamusca, Portugal) – See all my reviews

-The Best: Lisa Kudrow, Mira Sorvino, Janeane Garofalo, the most talented writer who provided us one of the most pleasant comedy movies to sit along for 1 hour and half. -The Worst: The runtime which is very small and the irritating Julia Campbell. The Rating- 7/10

Romy and Michelle are two best friend's who have been together for a very long time and never separated one from each other. One day, pulling out the year book, they remember how amazing and fun were the old times at high school. Discovering the existence of a ten year anniversary from their twelfth grade they, very enthusiastically prepare everything to go, when all of the sudden, they realize that normally on this kinds of parties everyone would proudly tell how successful their lives are currently even if they have to lie! The reality bumps into their minds: they are not successful, they don't have a wealthy life, and while one is cashier, the other is unemployed…. Now, they start racing against time to find boyfriend's to each other, and most desperately try to find a decent job. Two weeks have passed and the reunion is one day away, they didn't get any of the two things the two proposed, and while heading to the party Romy gets the idea of saying that they invented post-its!

From this point on the movie starts gathering all the characters of the movie for the big party. What results from this movie, fulfils all the viewers expectations, and in addition, does what a good comedy should: entertain, smile, and makes us laugh until our stomach hurts! This movie is to be seen until its very small detail which leads us to even more laughs. Almost all the cast is hilarious and there's also place for the ‘villains' starring the most annoying of all Julia Campbell as Christie Masters, well I know that's her role and she needs to look mean and, all, but let's face it she is really annoying to the part.

Get yourselves all together to this big party called ‘ Romy and Michele's High School Reunion', seat back, enjoy and have fun, recalling all the greatest hits from the 80's which are a remarkable point to the very century's history and to the movie as well, no one will even forget the greatest leaving of Romy and Michelle via Helicopter with one of the greatest 80's songs behind….

See it, it's absolutely worth watching…… 7/10
