In this prequel to Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, it shows Romy and Michele as they graduate in 1987, and again three years later as they take on Los Angeles. For years Romy and Michele have been dreaming to go to L.A. and become rich and famous, but they decided to put their trip on hold while they save money. Three years have passed by and they've only managed to save $68, only $8 more than they had in high school. Despite their lack of money, they decide to go ahead with their plans to move to L.A. after seeing Pretty Woman. As the girls arrive in L.A., they decide to become prostitutes, but chicken out after their first encounter with a client. As they walk home, a man lends them a dollar for a vending machine, and Romy and Michele are arrested for prostitution. Written by

So this movie is really not any good, but Katherine Heigl is so good that if you like her it is worth watching. I only saw the movie on TV, but the problem is obviously the screenplay. The movie easily could have been just about Romy and Michelle moving out to California, but instead they had to have a transsexual woman and super model and all these stupid elements that just take away from the story. They once again have a dance sequence near the end of the movie, but it is not anywhere near as funny or creative as the original. They took the basic formula from the original instead of just taking the characters into a new movie. Once again Romy and Michelle get into a fight and the whole movie just plays like a crappy retelling of the original. The four out of ten is only because Katherine is so likable in the movie, just like all her other movies so don't watch it unless you really like her.
