Usually we try to be topical with this podcast. We watch whatever is causing the hot goss so we can stay relevant. And occasionally we revisit movies that we aren’t sure are going to hold up. But today we’re watching one of our favorite movies of all time, one we KNOW holds up, Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion!
Since its release in 1997, it has been a cult classic and a staple in our lives. Most of our inside jokes and perfectly-referenced movie quotes come from Romy and Michele. Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino were and still are complete icons in their respective roles and it’s just as good today as it was almost 25 years ago. Not only that, it’s a GREAT story of female empowerment, women supporting women.
On top of the titular Romy and Michele, the movie is PACKED with hilarious caricature’s. Janeane Garofalo, Justin Theroux, Alan Cumming, etc. Everyone in this is so funny, even the bastard Christie Masters-Christensen. Bang for your buck you’d be hard pressed to find a better cast from that era.
So there’s no surprises here, we loved Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion and still recommend it. What do you think about it? Let us know over on Twitter or in the Youtube comments! Tell us what your favorite jokes and line reads are (“my shoe is filling up with BLOOD”). For now though, grab some Post-Its, steal a hamburger, and settle in for today’s episode of So…I’m Watching This Show!
