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

Trivia

When Romy and Michelle have a fight en route to Tucson, Romy tells Michelle "You're the Rhoda, you're the Jewish one!". Lisa Kudrow, who plays Michelle, in real life, is actually Jewish. See more »

Goofs

At the Versace boutique, the manager says, "I don't think we'll be requiring any new staff". The joke is that Michele doesn't understand the last word because of his "big accent", but she re-words his sentence completely, "You're not taking on any what?" which would indicate that she did, in fact, understand him.

Let's fold scarfs
21 July 2003 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Romy & Michele's High School Reunion" is all about Sorvino and Kudrow as a couple of best friend ditzes who have supported each through and since school and are confronted with their first high school ten year reunion. This female frolic depends entirely on the audience buying into the fun and funniness of the two leads and their nonstop blonde moments. The rest of the film is the usual high school reunion gig with all the stereotypes in place and the usual morals about just being yourself, being happy with who you are, being real, etc. Personally, I adored this flick but then I love "Adventures in Babysitting", "Sixteen Candles", and "Hollywood Knights" which requires going to a whole different place in your head to get away from "Gone With the Wind", "Citizen Kane", and "2001 A Space Odyssey". "Clueless" for the adult dating distaff. Fun, fun, fun. (B)
