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
In the dream reunion scene, when Romy and Michelle are on stage to receive their award, you can see just above the stage in the lights that are strung what looks like a banana on one side, and a carrot on the other just like the magnets that Christie put on Michelle's back brace in high school.

Heather? Heather Mooney? From Sagebrush High in Tuscon?
[disinterested yet quietly anxious]
It's Romy! Romy White!
[disinterestedly taking a drag from her cigarette]
You're shittin' me.
No! This is so weird - I didn't know you were living in L.A.
Well, now that you know, will we be getting together a lot?

"Romy & Michele's High School Reunion" is all about Sorvino and Kudrow as a couple of best friend ditzes who have supported each through and since school and are confronted with their first high school ten year reunion. This female frolic depends entirely on the audience buying into the fun and funniness of the two leads and their nonstop blonde moments. The rest of the film is the usual high school reunion gig with all the stereotypes in place and the usual morals about just being yourself, being happy with who you are, being real, etc. Personally, I adored this flick but then I love "Adventures in Babysitting", "Sixteen Candles", and "Hollywood Knights" which requires going to a whole different place in your head to get away from "Gone With the Wind", "Citizen Kane", and "2001 A Space Odyssey". "Clueless" for the adult dating distaff. Fun, fun, fun. (B)
