Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion (1997)

Likeable vacuous characters triumph over unlikable vacuous characters in Romy And Michele’s High School Reunion, a just-plain-vacuous comedy starring Friends‘ Lisa Kudrow and a woefully miscast Mira Sorvino.

At their high school reunion, cashier Romy (Sorvino) and unemployed Michele (Kudrow) decide to pretend they are extremely wealthy and successful.

Overlooked at the time of its release, Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion has established a very respectable cult following over the years, and nowhere are the secrets to its oddball charm more apparent than in the film’s climactic scenes.

Having triumphed over their former bullies, our heroines take to the floor and embark on one of cinema’s strangest moments of choreography to the nostalgic sounds of Cyndi Lauper’s Time after Time.

Former classmate Sandy Frink may join them in the spotlight, but this is all about the two women, celebrating their love for each other and embracing their status as outsiders through the medium of dance.
