A pair of nerdy party girls reinvent themselves for their 10-year high school reunion (in Tucson, AZ!) and find that some things never change in this charmingly goofy comedy about revenge, self-acceptance and blonde hair with black roots!
“Cheerful, giddy fun … Kudrow and Sorvino elevate bubble-headedness to new levels of comic ingenuity.” – Janet Maslin, New York Times
Romy (Mira Sorvino) and Michelle (Lisa Kudrow) are two unnatural blonde besties who were inseparable in high school and are now living together in L.A. They learn about their 10-year high school reunion in Tucson and desperately want to make a grand appearance, with a not-so-noble goal in mind: the former teenage outcasts want to blow minds and make everyone jealous as payback for the hell that the A-list crowd put them through in high school. Unfortunately they have no real jobs, no boyfriends, and absolutely no accomplishments to speak of. So they borrow a car, dress in fancy threads and make up a wild story about how they hit it big by inventing Post-It notes. Everyone is blown away until former mean girl Goth classmate Heather (Janeane Garofalo) blabs their real story to everyone, forcing Romy and Michele to let loose with a surprise of their own … one that’s going to have outrageous results! Co-starring Justin Theroux, Alan Cumming, and a jukebox full of totally awesome ‘80s pop hits (prepare for an unforgettable three way interpretive dance number set to Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time”), Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion is an A+ comedy that graduates at the top of its class! (Dir. by David Mirkin, 1997, USA, 92 mins., Rated R)
