Romy and Michele's High School Reunion (1997)

Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion has something polished, muted high school flicks like Heathers can only dream of: blunt, straight up humor.

“We don't care if you like us ’cause we don't like you! You’re a bad person with an ugly heart, and we don’t give a flying fuck what you think!”

That’s Romy (Mira Sorvino) by the way.

“I hope your babies look like monkeys!”

Now that’s Michele (Lisa Kudrow), acting all bitter.

Here’s more for posterity's sake. Gobble up.

ROMY: Swear to God, sometimes I wish I was a lesbian.
MICHELE: Do you want to try to see if we are?
ROMY: What? Yeah right, Michelle. Just the idea of having sex with another woman creeps me out. But if we're still single at 30, ask me again.

MICHELE: I'm the Mary and you're the Rhoda!
ROMY: You’re the Rhoda, you're the Jewish one!

ROMY: You have absolutely no proof that you're cuter!
MICHELE: Oh, proof. You want proof? Okay, fine. Who lost their virginity first?
ROMY: Oh big wow, with your cousin Barry! I wouldn't brag about it!

Haven't read About a Boy yet, but I love the film adaptation with Hugh Grant! I have Speaking with the Angel, an anthology of short stories edited by Nick Hornby featuring great writers, most notably Patrick Marber and Irvine Welsh.

I remember Cyndi Lauper's Time After Time being featured in Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, hehe. Was that in the prom scene? Love this film to bits!

Yes, let's exchange links. :-)
