Kudrow's Michele is a deadpan delight as she joins fellow misfit Romy (a deliciously funny Mira Sorvino).
80
Garofalo is amazing, as always, and the film is almost about her as much as the leads. The recreation of the casts' high school years is wickedly funny and dead on.

Chicago Sun-Times
It has charm, a sly intelligence, and the courage to go for special effects sequences.
75
A frothy comedy with the most adorable buddies since "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid."

ReelViews
One of those pleasant movie-going experiences that doesn't offend, excite, or challenge anyone. There are all sorts of likable things about it.
63
Ultimately, though, the movie's charms are frustrated by meandering direction.
60
A candy-colored, superficially fizzy revenge fantasy with a startlingly corrosive undercurrent of bitterness and frustration.

Entertainment Weekly
This sloppy, pleasant comedy by playwright and TV producer Robin Schiff (Almost Perfect) is an amiable mess, a padded-out expansion of a play called "Ladies' Room."

USA Today
Isn't smart enough to cut it as the ultimate blond joke. [25 April 1997, p. 4D]

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Okay, some of this is mildly diverting.

Sorvino and Kudrow, for whatever inscrutable reasons, seem to be having a blast with their ridiculous characters, and both shine in the loopy set-pieces and dream sequences that pepper the story.
