ROMY AND MICHELE’S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION (1997)

I was shocked when I found out Chris had somehow not seen Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion and it was something that I knew needed to be fixed right away. This movie is so great because it’s legitimately funny, sweet, super 90’s, and makes you feel good when it’s over. And that’s not even covering the fact that it has perhaps one of the greatest dance sequences in THE HISTORY OF FILM.

One of the subtler things I like about Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion is its ability to show women being funny and looking goofy, and they aren’t traits that only come with being unattractive or overweight, something I think a lot of funny female characters are reduced to. Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion isn’t just a funny chick flick, it’s a straight up comedy, no matter what gender we’re talking about.

And just because it needs to be seen as many times as possible:

I had never heard of this movie. Apparently that was weird to Elizabeth so we decided to watch it. And I have to say it’s not as awful as I had imagined! It’s pretty funny. Our friend Ben made the comment that it’s like Night at the Roxbury but better.

I liked watching it but I never have to see it again.

  1. I had forgotten that Alan Cumming was in it, too! That dance is hilarious! What does she say at the end? I replayed it several times but couldn’t tell. Has Chris heard the story about you meeting Alan at SCAD?

    1. She said “See? I told you it would pay off to go to those clubs every night,” earlier in the movie they’re shown dancing in sync at a nightclub. I told Chris about Alan Cumming, he loved it!
