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

Quite amusing
24 September 2005 | by beermonster3171See all my reviews

I have never been into this sort of film and never liked legally blonde or its follow up but after watching this film I wanted to know more about it all.

It was nice seeing the girl from Roswell playing a fun part,she plays dumb really well and boy does she look good. I also found her co star amusing and cute. This is a bit of a NO BRAINER, but I found it funny.

I found my self wanting more and now want to see the original film even though the cast is different. Paula Abdul and Kelly Brooke make appearances, Brooke shows she is limited as an actress but looks fantastic, her part is of limited appeal. Overall give it a go and you may have a bit of a giggle
