Storyline

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 Movie Guy-27

Alternate Versions

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".
  • Heather telling Clarence "If you fuck with me, in any way..." is replaced with "mess with me".

Hilarious!!! Great Fun!!! Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow Are Terrific!!!
31 July 2001 | by movies2uSee all my reviews

"Romy and Michele's High School Reunion" is a terrific comedy that you can't miss. This film is plain fun and makes you laugh throught the movie!! Mira Sorvino is great as Romy White , as is Lisa Kudrow as the ditsy yet fun Michele, and Janeane Garfolo as the rude and moody Heather Moony. This film is a sure great comedy. If you liked "Clueless" or "Legally Blonde" this is a great film for you!!! The acting is great, and the film itself is a non-stop laughing machine!!!!! This is a great and hilarious film that keeps you laughing!! I give this film a 10 out of 10!!!! :)
