In this prequel to Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, it shows Romy and Michele as they graduate in 1987, and again three years later as they take on Los Angeles. For years Romy and Michele have been dreaming to go to L.A. and become rich and famous, but they decided to put their trip on hold while they save money. Three years have passed by and they've only managed to save $68, only $8 more than they had in high school. Despite their lack of money, they decide to go ahead with their plans to move to L.A. after seeing Pretty Woman. As the girls arrive in L.A., they decide to become prostitutes, but chicken out after their first encounter with a client. As they walk home, a man lends them a dollar for a vending machine, and Romy and Michele are arrested for prostitution.Written by
The movie takes place in 1990, yet when Romy and Michele see the ocean for the first time there is a shot of the Santa Monica pier complete with all the rides, none of which were added to the pier until 1996. See more »

Well... this is a crap and I must start by this, because it's true.
This is one of those movies that only exists to destroy an original and brilliant idea that Romy & Michele was even people not understanding its potentials so much and then not giving great ratings as it really deserved and still deserves.
I always knew that this movies was bad, and that's why I never care to watch it. But yesterday, visiting a friend of mine, I had to watch it because he was, and you know... it was impossible not underrate it while my poor friend seemed to be loving it. All the time I felt the need to explain to him that the original one is so much better that he would keep it in his mind as one of the best comedy movies he would ever seen... but at the same time I thought by myself: "Well, think about it. If he seems to be loving this huge piece of $#!%, probably he would not understand a half of what Romy & Michele really means". Also, I brought with me Welcome To The Dollhouse, because it was a movie that he was curious about after saying so much about it to him. So I thought by myself again: "I can't believe that he seems to be loving this huge piece of $#!% while I have in my hands one of the finest thing about comedy that I've ever seen". And then... like a bolt sent from heaven, he said: "lets watch this one you brought... seems more interesting". Well, of course it is!
Romy & Michele: The Beginning, is the worst movie I've ever seen. So awful that all Friday The 13th series seems really great. OK, it's a movie made for television so it doesn't care so much for quality, but it's not an excuse for a so horrible taste.
The great thing about the original Romy & Michele are, of course, the actresses. Mira and Lisa are so perfect in their roles and their chemistry are stunning. Then you have all that nostalgic thing about the 80's, and an amazing script with extremely funny and intelligent dialogs. You have none of that in this one.
So, here's my advice. Do not waste your time on this one for your mental sake. I'm wasting my time writing all of this because I want you to know that I'm meaning it: IT'S AWFUL!!!
