“Isn’t it weird when you’re not friends with your friends anymore? I mean, Michele and I just fell out of touch about two hours ago.” -Romy White
That’s right folks, tonight is a Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion night! Crack open your Two Buck Chuck and microwave yourself a 100 Calorie Pack of popcorn!
When I first saw this movie as a wee little thing, I remember thinking Romy and Michele, despite their perceived shortcomings, were just the shit. Look how they dressed! Look how they lived in L.A.! Look where they hung out! Look how they went to the gym! Look at the bright colors!
But now, as I approach the age of the ladies in the movie, I see the desperation of trying to make your life fit into a mold that it just doesn’t, and how doing so makes you ignore the things that have made your life great.
Sure, we like to think that inventing the Post-It would solve all of our problems, but those people we’re trying to impress will never be impressed with us. There is no “business women’s special.” But that’s cool. You just have to keep on trucking.
“You know? I bet in high school, everybody made somebody’s life hell.” -Michele Weinberger
Except, you know, replace “high school” with “life” and you probably get close to the truth.
Did I just smash your face with some truth? It’s cool, you can get over it by having a DANCE PARTY!
That’s right, kids. Maybe one day we’ll just turn around and see the the millionaire shoe-inventer guy was in love with us the whole time.
