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.

Good little movie!
8 October 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As a die hard fan of the original Romy and Michelle i had to see this movie, although i had heard absolutely nothing else but bad comments about it. It was clearly never intended to be a massive box office hit but as a rainy afternoon flick it got a good few laughs and did its job! The acting isn't exactly Emmy worthy but Heigl is really funny and Kelly Brook actually does a good job as the spoilt unlikeable star.

If your looking for a serious movie with lots of meaning behind it then obviously this movie isn't for you.. which makes it slightly unfair that people watch it for these reasons then say bad things about it. If you like fun, quirky little movies then it's a really fun movie to watch and you'll really enjoy it!
