Editorial Reviews

Big laughs and hot stars make this a can't-miss comedy in the hilarious tradition of CLUELESS and DUMB AND DUMBER! Romy (Mira Sorvino) and Michele (Lisa Kudrow) are carefree party girls who reinvent themselves for their 10-year high school reunion. With new wardrobes and wild stories of success, they make a big impression ... until a former classmate Janeane Garofalo -- CLAY PIGEONS) blabs their real story to everyone! But that's when Romy and Michele let loose with a surprise of their own ... and outrageous results! Featuring a sizzling hit soundtrack of favorite hits from the '80s, it's the comedy treat The New York Times calls "cheerful, giddy fun!"

4.0 out of 5 stars Romy and Michele's High School Reunion March 22, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Who doesn't want to go to their high school reunion, and show everyone they look better then they did then with success beyond anyone's dreams? This laugh out loud satire of course takes it to the extreme, but it is a fun movie. As the movie switches back and forth between the present and the past, we see how they were tortured in high school. Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow act well together with great screen presence. The supporting cast is priceless! Well done comedy!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Mono was, like, the best diet ever..." August 25, 2006
Format:DVD
Love that quote. I actually had mono in college and lost about 10 pounds, but I wouldn't recommend it as a diet. Anyway, my college roommate and I would watch this movie when fighting stress, trying to hide from stupid people at college, and for relaxation (which means that we watched it about every other week). A most necessary escapism!

The opening scene, in which R & M are making fun of "Pretty Woman" ("As if the salesgirls there aren't bigger whores than she is"...."i get so happy when they let her shop!") is pretty much evocative of the whole movie - comparing themselves with other women, shopping for jobs and men.

Another great scene is when they're at the club, looking for suitable men, and Romy gets away from one guy with the excuse, "I cut my foot before, and my shoe is filling up with blood."

A wonderful movie in general, especially for individualists who were never part of cliques, who despise people that still grade others with shallow high school hierarchy systems.

Laugh outloud funny, and Janeane Garafalo's character is a perfectly independent blend of bitterness, sarcasm, and bitchiness. "This dress exacerbates the genetic betrayal that is my legacy."

Especially enjoyed the 80s high school flashbacks. Dressing like Madonna for the prom, happily basking in their fashion skills and originality (but of course Billy had to ruin it). When one of the A-list crowd put the magnets on Romy's back, it was so tragic. As Michele said later, "You couldn't help that you had scoliosis!" Duh! Bullies who pick on people for traits that they cannot change should be dragged out into the street and shot (Garfield used to say that, I believe).

The reunion itself is both sad and a relief.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilariously funny September 2, 2004
Format:DVD
Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow are Romy and Michelle, two ditzy blonde friends who live together in LA. When Romy runs into a high school classmate (Jeanne Garofalo, at her finest) the two women decide to attend their tenth high school reunion. Michelle and Romy decide to fabricate lives for themselves- successful careers, boyfriends, etc., to impress the people they went to high school with.

Using "like" after "like every "like" word "like," the two drive a Jaguar from LA to Arizona, reliving memories from the past- including old crushes and avoiding the "A" crowd of popular girls. While at the reunion, a lot of things (some of them improbable, to be sure) occur.

Although not of the highest calibre, this movie is extraordinarily funny, light comedy. It reminds us of what was good (or bad) about our high school years, while making us laugh at the same time about the foibles of the past.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic on my feel-good shelf September 8, 2006
Format:DVD
Almost ten years after the fact, "Romy & Michelle" endures as one of those personal Top Ten Feel-Good Movies that can be watched over and over with any kid or teen in your family, much like "Mrs. Doubtfire." When all else fails....

As a matter of fact, my college-freshman niece is receiving for Xmas this year a brand-new copy of the DVD and a stamper that says, "Let's Fold Scarves"!! R&M created traditions for us!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a movie that brings back memories.... August 17, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Watching this movie brought so many memories of high school. I graduated in 1987, and also had my 10th reunion when this movie came out. I identify with the characters' Romy and Michele in the loner way, in the way that they always wanted to be accepted by their peers, and were tortured repeatedly by the "A" group of their class. IT is great hearing all the music again too that I listened to back in my high school days. This is a light hearted film, that shouldn't be taken too seriously. It has a lot of great dialogue, and the best acting nod has to go to Alan Cumming as Sandy Frink. He is an extremely talented and versatile actor. He will make you laugh in this movie. Both Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino are very funny and very believable as the "airheads" Romy and Michele. Janine Garofelo plays the "loner" Heather Mooney. She is hysterical in this film. This film is in my video library and it's fun watching it again and again. It's a great light hearted comedy, and although I think they could have done more with the ending, it was a cool ending. If you are 31 years old(male or female), and feeling nostalgic for the high school days, rent Romy and Michele.

Since I am a child of the 80's, I have embraced the culture of it. I love the music, I love to laugh at the styles that were popular then, and I love to laugh at pictures of myself with mile-high hair.
"Romy & Michele's High School Reunion" brought back a lot of those memories. From the music to the clothes to the "high-school mentality," I laughed continuously through it. Even my boyfriend got a kick out of it. He doesn't normally like "chick flick" movies - he steers clear of them. However, I found him laughing right along with me.
This movie also struck a nerve with me: high school pettiness. References to the "A", "B", and "C" crowd made me practically nod my head in agreement.
Romy and Michele's desperate effort to fit in can mirror many people's experience when it comes to being liked by the "in" crowd. Their attempts to fit in and appear successful are laughed at and announced to the whole school (this is where the old high school pettiness comes in, even after 10 years) and Romy is devestated. All she ever wanted was to fit in, to have others like her.
Michele is quick to remind Romy that when it came right down to it, their high school years weren't all that bad. She had FUN. So, why not do at the reunion what they should have come for in the first place? Be themselves! Stop trying to impress people! Who cares what other people think?
Overall, this movie is a fun romp to liven the spirits. The 80's soundtrack is a must, and the 80's kitsch will bring back many a fond memory.
