Technical Specs


Did You Know?

When Romy and Michelle have a fight en route to Tucson, Romy tells Michelle "You're the Rhoda, you're the Jewish one!". Lisa Kudrow, who plays Michelle, in real life, is actually Jewish.

Continuity: When they set off for the reunion in the borrowed Jag, the song on the car stereo ("Footloose" - Kenny Loggins) doesn't resume from where it left off when the car stopped the last time.

Michele: You know, even though I had to wear that stupid back brace and you were kind of fat, we were still totally cutting edge.

Sex-change for "Dumb & Dumber" : blondes have more fun


ROMY AND MICHELE'S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION (1997) ***1/2 Mira Sorvino, Lisa Kudrow, Janeane Garofalo, Alan Cumming.

Hysterically funny comedy about two best friends/roomies Sorvino and Kudrow (think female "Dumb and Dumber") facing their 10th high school reunion and, realizing their lives are not worth really bragging about, coming up with pseudo lives. Lots of belly laughs especially Kudrow's explanation of how Post-It glue is made and her run in with a limo. Garofalo is a scream as their fellow bitter alumni. Kudos to costumer Mona Maya's outlandishly colorful creations, Robin Schiff's kitschy screenplay based on her play "Ladies' Room" and a waycool soundtrack of ersatz 80s tunes (best one: The Smithereen's "Blood & Roses" to start off the flashback). Directed in high comic style and snappish glee by David Mirkin.
