Romy and Michele's High School Reunion
BFFs and housemates Romy (Mira Sorvino) and Michele (Lisa Kudrow) are living totally fine but sort of rudderless late twenties single gal lives. When Romy runs into their ex-classmate Heather (Janeane Garofalo in a singularly sardonic role of a lifetime) and finds out there’s going to be a 10-year high school reunion, they leave their Venice Beach apartment for hometown Tucson, Arizona. At first thrilled about catching up, despair sets in as they remember what high school was really like and they start forming an intricate but easily penetrable web of lies. Hilarity and the best/worst reunion ever ensues.
Why You Should See This Film
This 1997 comedy is well remembered, sure, but it should be CELEBRATED DAILY. Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow display perfect comic timing, bringing warmth and empathy to their characters. Of course Janeane Garofalo and Alan Cumming put in iconic performances and look out for Justin Theroux as the mysterious cowboy. The fashion, the music, the quick-burning cigarettes, the post-its!
