Romy and Michele's High School Reunion (1997) Poster


Lisa Kudrow made up the entire "special glue" formula on the spot.
Lisa Kudrow received a degree in Biology from Vassar College, and Mira Sorvino a degree in Asian Studies from Harvard University, so during production of Romy and Michele, they nicknamed each other "Smart" and "Smarter".
The red blouse that Lisa Kudrow wears when she enters the Versace store is the same one worn by Courteney Cox (her cast mate from Friends (1994)) at the end of _Scream (1996)_.
In one scene, Christy played a trick on Michelle by putting magnets on her back brace. The actress who played Christy, Julia Campbell, wore a back brace in real life when she developed scoliosis at age 11. At 15, she had to have corrective surgery when her spine started cutting into her right lung. She has since recovered but cannot partake in any physical activities that puts pressure on her spine.
In the dream reunion scene, when Romy and Michelle are on stage to receive their award, you can see just above the stage in the lights that are strung what looks like a banana on one side, and a carrot on the other just like the magnets that Christie put on Michelle's back brace in high school.
In the spin class scene, when Lisa Kudrow is talking about the "guy in the rowboat", you can clearly see the woman in the background try to hold back laughter.
Art Fry is the inventor of Post-Its.
Both the Romy and Michele characters were originated in the stage play "Ladies Room." Lisa Kudrow reprises the role she played in it.
References to Mira Sorvino's boyfriend Quentin Tarantino productions:
  • In the scene where Romy and Michele are pigging out in their living room, you can see a take-out bag from Big Kahuna Burger.

  • An ad for Red Apple cigarettes on the building next to their apartment.

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.
The episode of The Simpsons (1989) that Ramon and the co-workers watch was written by the movie's director 'David Mirkin (I)'.
The trailer has a small bit of dialog edited out of the movie: In a scene from the film used in the trailer, Michele tells the A-list girls "We're not the ones who got fat," to which Christine replies "We're pregnant." In the trailer Michele then retorts "Okay, we're not the ones who got pregnant," but this line does not appear in the movie.
The car dealership in the film where Mira Sorvino's character works is called Rusnak - located in Pasadena, California on Colorado Blvd.
