Storyline

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.

Unfortunate misuse of Ketherine Heigl's talent....
30 May 2005 | by (Phoenix, AZ) – See all my reviews

The movie gets four stars for the wonderful interpretation of Lisa Kudrow by Heigl. Immediately at the film's beginning the audience sees how magnificently she does the voice and facial expressions of her predecessor.

Which would have been enough to give the movie ten stars if it wasn't for the small fact Katherine Heigl is supposed to be playing the part of Mira Sorvino. I thought for a moment I had just mixed up the names from my memories of the previous movie, but no: now that I'm checking this site, I see it was the movie's mistake. They either didn't notice it or didn't care. Whichever is unforgivable.

I'd give the whole thing zero if Heigl hadn't been perfect in her portrayal of at least somebody.
