Product Description

It's time to kick up your heels and celebrate the 15th anniversary of a hilarious comedy hit starring Academy Award(R) winner Mira Sorvino (Best Supporting Actress, 1995, MIGHTY APHRODITE) and Emmy Award(R) winner Lisa Kudrow (Outstanding Supporting Actress, Comedy, 1998, FRIENDS). Experience the fun, the laughs and the sizzling soundtrack like never before on Blu-ray with an all-new digital restoration! Romy and Michele are carefree party girls who reinvent themselves for their 10-year high school reunion. Their plan is working perfectly until a former classmate (Janeane Garofalo) blabs their real story to everyone. But Romy and Michele have one more big surprise up their sleeves. This is one reunion you won't want to miss. Join the party on Blu-ray!

Amazon.ca

Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino play ditzy best friends who decide to attend their 10-year high school reunion, but they completely make over their styles and identities first in order to impress the people who tormented them. The two stars keep Romy and Michele's High School Reunion going despite various lapses and potholes in David Mirkin's direction and despite a sneaking sense that the idea can't sustain the length of an entire feature. A midsection dream sequence underscores the latter problem through blatant padding, but Sorvino and Kudrow--both of whom became established stars playing airheads on other projects--are worth the weaknesses. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

If you are a fan of so called "girl movies" you will love ROMY AND MICHELE'S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION. It stars Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow, who play Romy and Michele respectively. They receive an invitation to their 10 year high school reunion. Through "flashbacks" we see what they were like in high school, as well as a bunch of other characters like Heather, Sandy, and more. Romy and Michele don't have any boyfriends, and Michele isn't working. Once they start doing their forms for the reunion to see what they've been up to, they realize their lives aren't very impressive and decide to do something about it. They devise a plan and say that they invented Post It Notes. Romy & Michele have a falling out on the road trip there, and a weird dream ensues. Back to reality, at the reunion, dressed as business woman, they are laughed out of the place when their lie is uncovered by Heather. Romy & Michele make up and are friends again, and decide to have fun nonetheless. They realize it doesn't matter what anyone thought of them, that they had fun with each other nonetheless. They come in their own flashy outfits that their peers would have remembered them in, and ultimately take the place by storm and show up everyone who did them wrong in high school. Michele finally hooks up with Sandy, who had a crush on her in high school, Romy sets her crush straight, and they go back to live a fabulous life in LA where they own their own fashion store. Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow were made for these roles, it's truly a great movie for laughs and smiles. Oh and the soundtrack for the movie is excellent, 80's classics! Overall a real treat you must see!

A deliciously cast screw-ball comedy, the film tells the story of ditzy best friends Romy and Michele (wonderfully played by nd Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow) who decide to attend their 10-year high school reunion, but try to impress the former classmates who tormented them by completely making over themselves and their personalities. The two stars keep the film moving along, despite the various lapses in David Mirkin's direction, and the weird suspicion that the cute idea can't sustain a full-length feature film. (Proven by the lenghy mid-dream sequence). However, Sorvino and Kudrow are definitely worth seeing the film for. They know their characters, and become them, making these unbelievable women totally real. The supporting cast include the always wonderful Alan Cumming, Camryn Manheim, and Janeane Garofalo as a vicious, chain-smoking, foul-mouthed former classmate, who has some amazingly funny lines, and proves to be one of the better characters in the film. The 80's soundtrack just adds to the feel (and the fun). It is meant to me a fluffy, light, and funny film, and it totally succeeds on that level. This movie defines Guilty Pleasure! Perfect for a boring Sunday afternoon.

Romy and Michele make such engaging and wonderful couple, they carry the movie very smoothly to the end. They are almost genious. The plot is simple, the characters are stereotypical and the events are somewhat perdictable. So what? They don't make the movie any worse but even better. You don't need complicated storyline and supernatural heroes to make a good movie. Romy and Michele's straight-forward characters not only entertain the audience but give us deeper lessons and feelings, too. You don't have to be ashamed of who you are but be yourself and face your problems no matter how others may judge you. Their courage gets rewarded and there are emotional instances when they realize that there are other important things in life than career and money. You get the sense of life that it is not worth living if you are not going to have fun anyway.

David Mirkin's Romy and Michele's High School Reunion is a dizzying parody of female objectivity and stereotypes. Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow star as typical dumb blondes, Romy and Michele, who attempt to make themselves appear successful for their high school reunion. The lead blondes place such importance on their appearance that all other aspects of their lives are moot. They hunt for "successful/ well-to-do" boyfriends, executive style clothing, and jobs to complement their fib about being something more than they are. They want to appear as accomplished women, marked by high paying jobs and nice cars, and diligently try to actualize this goal. At the climax, Romy and Michele realize that success isn't based on appearance but rather on personal contentment. The popular girls of their class "look" great but are actually miserable people.
Romy and Michele turn themselves into objects, just as the film does. The camera cuts them into itty-bitty pieces of the female body, shrouded in lacy pink and baby blue. The complete airheadedness of the heroines pokes fun at the blonde, girlie-girl image that is seen in films, media, and daily life. The over exaggerated stereotype of success in the film is a serious blow to society's view of accomplishment. The fact that Romy and Michele, two dumb and clueless girls, can appear successful simply by driving a jaguar, wearing business suits, and attracting even more successful men shows that too great of an importance is placed on monetary things. Ironically, their outlandish personal styles are accepted by their peers only after the "successful" fashion designer says that their clothes "aren't half bad."
Mirkin's film is a fun pun on success, stereotypes, appearance, and best of all itself.
