Romy and Michele's High School ReunionHD Closed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Two dimwitted pals attempt to fib their way through their high school reunion with disastrous results in this bubbly comedy from David Mirkin, frequent director of the cult TV sitcom Get a Life!. Los Angeles dim-bulbs Romy (Mira Sorvino) and Michelle (Lisa Kudrow) have been best friends since childhood. Their shared passions include shopping, club-hopping, and creating their own candy-colored fashions. When their tenth high school reunion looms, the friends realize that their lives are not impressive enough to cow the popular crowd that tormented them in their teen years. So Romy borrows a Jaguar, and the duo concocts a story about how they became top corporate executives by creating Post-It Notes. Once they are at the reunion, however, Romy and Michelle's scheme unravels. Saturnine classmate Heather (Janeane Garofalo), who really did make a fortune as an inventor, exposes their fraud, and the girls find themselves mocked again, by everyone except Sandy Frink (Alan Cumming), a nerd millionaire with a lingering crush on Michelle. Kudrow reprised the role of Michelle from her late 1980s stage performance in the play Ladies' Room by Robin Schiff, who expanded both the play and the part of Michelle for the feature film version.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Cheerful, giddy fun
Fresh: Kudrow's Michele is a deadpan delight.
Rotten: Writer Robin Schiff, expanding on minor characters in a play, fails to find enough for her ditsy and ditsier pair to do.
Fresh: Beneath the endless silliness of the movie beats a real heart
One of my all-time favs!
This movie is FANTASTIC. It proves that the phrase "intellectually-stupid" is not an oxymoron. I'm proud to have this title as my first iTunes movie purchase!
Really funny movie...
Definitely one of the funniest movies of all time.
"Ow, that hurt....but it looked really good!"
LMAO through the whole thing. I love this frickin' film; it is hysterical!! Great music, great memorable lines, great performances all around, especially Janene Garafalo's dry, surly 'Heather Mooney', probably her best performance yet. In fact I own it on VHS and DVD but I still had to buy it for my iPod. I almost NEVER recommend a film, but I highly, HIGHLY recommend this one!!
