This time around it's 1987, and new high school graduates Romy and Michele are desperate to get away from their hometown of Tucson, Arizona. Their goal is to leave their square town behind and be amongst the beautiful, hip people in Hollywood, California, where they can realize their dream of socializing with the rich and famous. Their lives would be complete if they could just get into the celebrity-laden Ozone, the hottest nightclub in Los Angeles. It takes them three years to save up enough money, and find the right outfits to wear, but once in Hollywood, the lovable and lucky duo's escapades lead them to a cast of characters who keep their lives from being anything but square.

Well... this is a crap and I must start by this, because it's true.
This is one of those movies that only exists to destroy an original and brilliant idea that Romy & Michele was even people not understanding its potentials so much and then not giving great ratings as it really deserved and still deserves.
I always knew that this movies was bad, and that's why I never care to watch it. But yesterday, visiting a friend of mine, I had to watch it because he was, and you know... it was impossible not underrate it while my poor friend seemed to be loving it. All the time I felt the need to explain to him that the original one is so much better that he would keep it in his mind as one of the best comedy movies he would ever seen... but at the same time I thought by myself: "Well, think about it. If he seems to be loving this huge piece of $#!%, probably he would not understand a half of what Romy & Michele really means". Also, I brought with me Welcome To The Dollhouse, because it was a movie that he was curious about after saying so much about it to him. So I thought by myself again: "I can't believe that he seems to be loving this huge piece of $#!% while I have in my hands one of the finest thing about comedy that I've ever seen". And then... like a bolt sent from heaven, he said: "lets watch this one you brought... seems more interesting". Well, of course it is!
Romy & Michele: The Beginning, is the worst movie I've ever seen. So awful that all Friday The 13th series seems really great. OK, it's a movie made for television so it doesn't care so much for quality, but it's not an excuse for a so horrible taste.
The great thing about the original Romy & Michele are, of course, the actresses. Mira and Lisa are so perfect in their roles and their chemistry are stunning. Then you have all that nostalgic thing about the 80's, and an amazing script with extremely funny and intelligent dialogs. You have none of that in this one.
So, here's my advice. Do not waste your time on this one for your mental sake. I'm wasting my time writing all of this because I want you to know that I'm meaning it: IT'S AWFUL!!!
