“Romy And Michelle” Are Reuniting?! This “Cult Movie Monday” May Have Another “High School Reunion!”

Time For A Reunion With Romy And Michelle!

Two of my favorite movie characters are this week’s “Cult Movie Monday”: Romy White and Michele Weinberger are best friends, and their 1997 comedy is a classic!

Not only that, but Mira Sorvino recently revealed that discussions are underway for a sequel!

“Romy & Michelle’s High School Reunion!”

This hilarious comedy stars Mira Sorvino, Lisa Kudrow, Alan Cummings and Janeane Garrfalo. Romy and Michelle stay best friends for a decade after high school, and we follow their misadventures as they prepare for their ten-year reunion.

Here is the trailer:

Sorvino and Kudrow are pitch perfect as Romy and Michelle: best friends living together in a special “Romy & Michelle” world…like when they talk about life on a strict diet:

Romy: I’ve been killing myself for eight days and I gained a pound.
Michele: That’s impossible. Did you deduct sixteen pounds for your shoes?

Michele: Did you lose weight?
Romy: Actually, I have been trying this new fat free diet I invented. All I’ve had to eat for the past six days are gummy bears, jelly beans, and candy corns.
Michele: God, I wish I had your discipline.

When they receive word of their ten year reunion, they realize their lives aren’t as impressive as they’d like, including the fact that neither of them has a boyfriend.

Romy: Swear to God, sometimes I wish I was a lesbian.
Michele: Do you want to try to have sex sometime just to see if we are?
Romy: What? Yeah, right, Michelle. Just the idea of having sex with another woman creeps me out. But if we’re not married by the time we’re 30, ask me again.
Michele: Okay.

They decide to go to the reunion – but “made over” into a fantasy version of themselves – with business outfits, cell phones, and for Michelle, a hilarious new resume, which she reveals to the most popular girl in school, Christie…

Christie: So, Mi-chelle! What are you up to?
Michele: Oh, okay. Um, I invented Post-Its.
Christie: No offense, Michele, but how in the world did *you* think of Post-Its?
Michele: Actually I invented a special kind of glue.
Christie: Oh really? Well then I’m sure you wouldn’t mind giving us a detailed account of exactly how you concocted this miracle glue, would you?
Michele: No. Um, well, ordinarily when you make glue first you need to thermoset your resin and then after it cools you have to mix in an epoxide, which is really just a fancy-schmancy name for any simple oxygenated adhesive, right? And then I thought maybe, just maybe, you could raise the viscosity by adding a complex glucose derivative during the emulsification process and it turns out I was right. “

Of course they meet many of their high school enemies, as well as fellow outcasts Janeane Garofalo and Alan Cummings.

Garofalo is hilariously caustic, and Cummings is the nerd who becomes Bill Gates…

And of course, check out this unique way that Romy talks to people to find out what they are up to…

Romy: Hey, um, great suit. Is that an Armani?
Suit Salesman: Yes. Yes, it is.
Romy: I thought so. So, what do you do?
Suit Salesman: I’m a suit salesman.
Romy: Would you excuse me? I cut my foot before and my shoe is filling up with blood.

While Sorvino and Kudrow nail the dim-witted, clueless characters, it couldn’t have been easy for them…

Why? Well, Lisa Kudrow received a degree in Biology from Vassar College, and Mira Sorvino has a degree in Asian Studies from Harvard University, so during production of Romy and Michele, they nicknamed each other “Smart” and “Smarter”!

I just re-watched this again recently, and boy is it a lot of fun! I look forward to hearing more about plans for a sequel to the film – these characters are great, and if done right could be a terrific movie!

That said, roommates don’t ALWAYS get along, however:

Especially when one is a “Single White Female”…check out this great “psycho roommate” thriller by clicking on my story here:

  3. I have never seen this one, John. My step-daughters quote from it at times though. They were only about 11 when they saw it on DVD (or maybe VHS), but got it straight off.
    Best wishes, Pete.


  4. I love Lisa Kudrow, well, in Friends in any event. I watched every episode and many more than once. That part sounds prefect for her.
