Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion (1997)


Two dense, inseparable friends hit the road for their 10-year high school reunion and concoct an elaborate lie about their lives in order to impress their classmates. (IMDb)

The first act is uniquely charming, as the lovably awkward leads exchange deadpan diva one-liners and reminisce about high school (with some great flashback sketches). The middle act falters a little as the weak plot flounders about, but the wacky third act with a nice message (featuring a hilarious extended dream sequence and an outrageous three-person interpretive dance) picks things back up. Spikes of vulgarity (mostly thanks to the excellent Garofalo) help break up the overall fluffiness.

6.5/10 (Alright)
