Romy and Michelles High School Reunion
Plot Synopsis: Two women get into a lot of trouble when they go to their high school reunion and lie about their lives after twelfth grade
A few days ago I watched Bridesmaids. I was told its the funniest, raunchiest comedy out there, and the sell point is that it's also a chick flick. It's funny in parts, but it doesn't hold a candle to the best girl movie ever made. Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion.
I absolutely adore this film. Its funny, has a great 80's soundtrack, and vibe. The chemistry between Lisa Kudrow, and Mira Sorvina is fantastic, and all in all its just an enjoyable film. As it is a comedy this review will be short, as its almost impossible to give away jokes, and lets face it, your reading, not watching so I cant really discuss sight gags either.
Romy and Michell are two best friends, who in my opinion should have explored a lesbian relationship, as they are both so hot! They have been best friends forever and live together in LA. They get a letter inviting them to there 10 year reunion, and desperately want to make up an elaborate story to sound successfuly, and important. See they were laughed at by the popular kids. Not really sure why, as the popular kids were pretty ugly, and they were hot as hell. And now they are far from successful. Romy is unemployed, and Michelle works the counter at a rent a car store. It also leads me to wonder one other thing. If they were laughed at in High school, by people they didn't like anyway, in a town they hated, why would they want to go back.
But they want to go so they decide to tell everyone they invented Post It's. Problem is, and yes much like a real 80's film, this has your typical 80's style catch. A friend of theres shows up and reveals they did not in fact invent Post It's. You know I have to ask, why would to airheads, who lets be honest, may be hot, but are clearly dumb as shit say they invented Post It's? I guess they came up with that because they are so dumb. There is no way in hell anyone would have ever believed them anyway.
In the end though they stand up to the popular girls and dance with a former nerd, who is now rich. And as the nerd always liked Romy, he loans them money to open up their own clothing store. That's the only part I found bad. The dance with the nerd to end the reunion. They should have danced together, dirty danced, lambada if you will. Because in case I forgot to mention, there both hot!
This is a great film, I really don't think I have ever heard anyone say a bad word about it. It's what a film should be. Fun, and entertaining. I highly recommend this.
Overall 4 out of 5 Stars!
