Just to let people know this is on tonight (Mon 26th Jan) on E4 at 10:45pm (after the acting masterclass that is 90210)

I found it funny when I last saw it but IMDb disagrees!, giving it a 5.8/10

Lisa Kudrow, Janeane Garofalo and Mira Sovino star.

One of me fave films. Reminds me of when I was about 11, and I actually thought life would be like that, that me and my friends would still be best friends years later. lol

Needless to say I grew up lol

One of the worst films i've ever seen. Not one funny joke at all i'm afraid and i love Lisa Kudrow normally.

I like this It has a bad rep, but I think it's pretty funny; sometimes you don't need a great film, just a silly comedy, and this fits the bill.

I like it, and thanks to seeing a warning on another forum about it being on, I sat and watched it too!

So many quotable lines, and Mira Sorvino stole the show for me!

I'd not seen this in years so I recorded it last night after finding the first 10 minutes funny.

One thing I thought of when it started (after knowing the bad rep this movie has) is that if it was a movie about 2 blokes (say, Will Ferrell & Jon Hederson for example) it would be seen as a classic, must see movie.

Random thought I know

I love it's daft spirit, and Janeane Garrofolo. The scene at the car rental where she explains how she did not have a thing with the guy in highschool is hilarious.

It's the first film that springs to mind when someone asks 'what's your favourite movie?' then to save face I give my second favourite as an answer lol

I've been dying to use 'I'm sorry I cut my foot a while ago and now my shoe is filling with blood' as an escape line for ages, but I've never been quite that brave!

Funny you mentioned Will Ferrell... he did a movie called Night At The Roxbury about two dim blokes who try to get into an exclusive nightclub and be part of the IT crowd... not too dis-similar to some of the plot pieces of Romy & Michelle...

Oops, I meant Jeneane Garrofolo! I got her a Mira Sorvino mixed up! Glad she got it on with the cowboy at the end!

Most of Jeneane's lines are brilliant!

I went the cinema to see this and found it rather amusing

Heather: Why are you tormenting me? Why don't you go **** a sheep, or your sister, or YOURSELF? Braindead redneck asshole!

The bit where one of them swings her hair around made me chuckle, too

They made a prequel. It sucked massively. Kelly Brook was the best actress in it. What does that tell you?

And of course, the follow up when they're older...

Coyboy: "I was a braindead redneck asshole... but I never f*cked a sheep... or my sister..."
Heather: "Why... couldn't catch 'em?!"

This film is brilliant. I love it. I once watched this film 3 times in a row while cleaning my room throughly when I was a teenager. It never gets old. Love Lisa Kudrow in it. Also, notice how the guy Romy fancies, played Fun Bobby in F.R.I.E.N.D.S? His onscreen gf/Wife (Christy) was also in it too for an episode.

Michelle: For me, it's like I've just given birth to my own baby girl, except she's like a big giant girl who smokes and says "shit" a lot. You know?

Michelle: Remember the prom? You got so thin by then.
Romy: Oh, I know. I was so lucky getting mono. That was like the best diet ever.
