Storyline

In this prequel to Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, it shows Romy and Michele as they graduate in 1987, and again three years later as they take on Los Angeles. For years Romy and Michele have been dreaming to go to L.A. and become rich and famous, but they decided to put their trip on hold while they save money. Three years have passed by and they've only managed to save $68, only $8 more than they had in high school. Despite their lack of money, they decide to go ahead with their plans to move to L.A. after seeing Pretty Woman. As the girls arrive in L.A., they decide to become prostitutes, but chicken out after their first encounter with a client. As they walk home, a man lends them a dollar for a vending machine, and Romy and Michele are arrested for prostitution. Written by Anonymous

Good little movie!
8 October 2008 | by purple-starsSee all my reviews

As a die hard fan of the original Romy and Michelle i had to see this movie, although i had heard absolutely nothing else but bad comments about it. It was clearly never intended to be a massive box office hit but as a rainy afternoon flick it got a good few laughs and did its job! The acting isn't exactly Emmy worthy but Heigl is really funny and Kelly Brook actually does a good job as the spoilt unlikeable star.

If your looking for a serious movie with lots of meaning behind it then obviously this movie isn't for you.. which makes it slightly unfair that people watch it for these reasons then say bad things about it. If you like fun, quirky little movies then it's a really fun movie to watch and you'll really enjoy it!
