Flashback Friday-Romy And Michele’s High School Reunion

High school was not a pleasant experience for some of us.  As much as we try to move on from our teenage selves after high school, we are somehow always pulled back to the place on our life. Especially when the invitation for the High School Reunion appears in our mail.

In Romy And Michele’s High School Reunion, Romy White (Mira Sorvino) and Michele Weinberger (Lisa Kudrow) have been best friends since high school. They were also the social outcasts picked on by the popular girls. When they receive the announcement of their ten year high school reunion, they decide to go, but they also smudge a few facts about their post high school lives.

This movie is totally funny. I love the what if factor. The what if you were success, in spite of the people who picked on or ignored you in high school. And the soundtrack is the perfect 80’s soundtrack.

I recommend this movie.

Flashback Friday-TV Edition Part II- Popular

In the social hierarchy is that High School, there are often two different types of people. The popular kids and not so popular kids.

The 1999-2001 television series, Popular, asked the question, what if these two seemingly different groups were forced to live with each other?

Popular Brooke McQueen (Leslie Bibb) and unpopular Sam McPherson (Carly Pope) dislike each other intensely. But their single parents get married, Brooke, Sam and their friends must find a way to somewhat peacefully coexist.

It was a typical teen drama from the late 90’s and early 2000’s. Was it Shakespeare? No. But it was cute and for what it was, it was enjoyable? Yes.

Do I recommend it? Why not, if only for old times sake.
