Romy and Michele's High School Reunion

"Good"

Romy and Michele's High School Reunion Review


With more Go-Go's songs than any other film this year, Romy and Michele's High School Reunion is a treat if for no other reason than to hear the 80s soundtrack. The plot? Simple: Romy and Michele have gone nowhere in the ten years since high school, so they create themselves into seriously unbelievable "businesswomen" in an attempt to impress their fellow graduates at the reunion. Much like Grosse Pointe Blank, though, too much emphasis is placed on nostalgia and not enough is placed on the script. Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow prove to be a powerful duo on-screen, but with jokes that hit about 50 percent of the time, not even the shiniest of outfits can pull them through the low points of this film. Janeane Garofalo disappoints here, also, reprising the stereotypical, crusty, chain-smoker she has played a hundred times. It all boils down to a fair-enough experience... you know... like, whatever.

Beam me up, Romy.
