Jarv’s Birthday Series Redux: Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion (1997)
This is a tough one. I vaguely remember seeing it in 1997, or possibly 98, but I also vaguely remember liking it. Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion (22nd August in the UK) is, as I recall, a light and likeable little film, albeit one that flirts with being a chick-flick and in the days of gross out comedy was a gentle and undemanding look at two women that really epitomise blonde jokes. Looking at it now that I’m in my thirties and way past the 10 year anniversary, I wasn’t expecting miracles, just something dramatically better than my recent run.
