A terrific, colorful DVD with few extras. The transfer is excellent, though, and the soundtrack is especially good.
Romy and Michele's High School ReunionClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that most of the common curse words ("f--k," "s--t") get a workout here. The main characters lie about their accomplishments to impress others and seem to believe that appearances are more important than hard work, good intentions, and decency. Michele is so intent on borrowing a Jaguar to impress former classmates that she audibly pretends to have sex with a man who owns a nice car so he can elevate his image in the view of their eavesdropping coworkers. A married alcoholic suggests he and Romy take a hotel room to have sex. One character, who used to grab a secret smoke between classes in high school, makes her fortune in the cigarette business.
- Sexual Content
- Michele and Romy go dancing wearing sexy but body-covering outfits, and they're on the prowl for boyfriends. In exchange for borrowing a guy's Jaguar, Michele verbally pretends to have sex with the car's owner so coworkers on the other side of a closed door hear their fake moans. A drunken married man suggests he and Romy get a room to have sex.
- Not applicable
- Expect the liberal use of "f--k," "s--t," "jerk off," "bitch," "hell," "a--hole," "erection," "penis," and "turd."
- Social Behavior
- Romy and Michele lie about their accomplishments to impress others and seem to believe that appearances are more important than hard work, good intentions, and decency. They may be low on brains, but they register high on the drive spectrum. When they set their minds on looking pretty for their upcoming high school reunion, they sweat it off at the gym, make flashy new clothes, and creatively find a way to borrow a snazzy ride to the party.
- Romy is a cashier at a Jaguar dealership, and the brand is seen in several scenes. The friends claim they invented Post-its.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- At least two characters smoke, one made her fortune in the cigarette business, and at least one character is an alcoholic who is sloppily inebriated.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
