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
When Sandy and Toby are naming the capitals of all the 50 states at the Prom, Sandy says Albuquerque which is not a capital of any of the 50 states. See more »
At the "dream" reunion, the Mercedes limousine changes from one with two moon roofs, then with a shorter limo with one moon roof, and back again. When Romy is hit by Sandy's limousine, the rear window is blacked out by window tint, but the tint disappears moments later when Romy and Sandy are shown in the back of the limo. When the cars appear inside the reunion, Sandy's limousine now has blanked rear door opera windows and a smaller back window (additionally, the trunk mounted television antenna that Romy knocked off before entering the reunion has now re-appeared). As the limousine exits the building, it is back to the longer, dual moon-roof model seen earlier with the trunk-mounted television antenna missing again. See more »

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.
