Romy & Michelle's High School Reunion
Dir. David Mirkin, 1997.
United States, 92 minutes.
In a decade of power women and proving to the world that women can truly have it all, there were Romy and Michelle, the antithesis to the powerbroker businesswoman archetype to emerge in the 80s and 90s. Best friends living in LA trying to make the rent and look good doing it, they decide against their better judgement to go to their high school reunion and shove their success in everyone's face. The catch? They're dreams of making it big still haven't panned out. Deciding to fake it till they make it, they hit the road and make everyone eat it in an outrageous female buddy comedy dripping with one liners and an outstanding cast.
