Romy and Michele have been through it all, including being tortured by the Popular crowd when in high school. When they receive word of a 10 year reunion, they come to realize their lives aren't as impressive as they'd like them to be. Instead of staying home they go to the reunion with business outfits, cell phones, and one heck of a bogus success story.Written by

Michelle and I have this high school reunion to go to, and we need to show up in a really cool car.
Todd told me he gave you a really great deal on a convertible and that you were fixing it up.
So... can I borrow your car?
Well, if I loan you my car, what do I get?
Uh... what do you want?
[looks her up and down]
Oh, Romy... you know what I want.
Forget it! I'm not going to have sex with you just to borrow your stupid car!
I gotta get something!

UK cinema version (rated 12) removes all profanity and inserts inoffensive replacements, along with removing some sexual references:
[Reel 1] Heather telling Toby to "fuck off" is replaced with "bug off".
[Reel 2] Same as the first cut (when Toby interrupts Heather and Sandy at the prom).
Heather asking Clarence "Why don't you go fuck a sheep..." is replaced with "wed a sheep".
[Reel 3] When Ramon asks Romy for a favour at the car dealership, the second half of their fake sex dialogue is cut. "Man stallion, fill me with your giant love wand" up to and including "Oh Ramon, your penis is so powerful, I'm coming" is removed.
[Reel 4] Heather telling Toby to "fuck off" after being asked for a name tag is removed.
Heather's line "I already asked Toby dumb-fuck" is replaced with "dumb-butt".
[Reel 5] Romy's line "Now we're just a fucking joke" is replaced with "stupid joke" (this cut persists in the American video version).
Romy telling Christy "We don't give a flying fuck what you think" is replaced with "flying frog".
Toby telling Heather "And please don't tell me to fuck off" is replaced with "bug off".

Hilarious. The "Mean Girls" of 97
My sister and I originally rented this film when I was 9/10 years old. Since then I have watched it possibly 20 times. Its one of the funniest films I've seen and is not only a great flashback of the 80s [Although not a damn patch on 13 GOING ON 30] but a hilarious bimbo movie, possibly the best if it weren't for 2004's MEAN GIRLS.
This is an endearing, funny, mean, warm movie about the innocence of being a bimbo and its negatives and positives. Lisa Kudrow is especially comfortable in this role thanks to Pheobe.
It's not exactly high brow humour, but the laughers and great characters of the 97 set picture not only bring back memories of the 1990s now but it also lets us all know that we shouldn't accept the crap of todays Hollywood. Brilliant [A]
