    Don't be scared. There's nothing announced (that I know of).

    I really have a soft spot for this flick. Its mindless fun, and the characters are really charming. With all the high end, special FX, blockbuster movies fighting for our attention - this is a nice little diversion.

    I'd love to see a sequel!

    So, what are your ideas for this film? What would be a good title for a sequel?

    At the close of 'Romy and Micheles High School Reunion', the girls had opened their own (apparently very successful) fashion boutique featuring their own clothing line. They appeared single still, although with Michele its a question mark.

    One idea I heard was "Romy and Michelle Go to College", but I'm not a big fan of that idea.

    High School Reunionerer. When Romy Met Michelle.

    I'll just hold on to my $7, if it's all the same to you...[​IMG]

    I was talking about this movie the other day with my partner. We watch that movie every few weeks. Love it! Its really got some great moments in it. Lisa Kudrow is wonderful as is everyone else who nails their roles and the dialouge is hillarious!
    Even the cuts from one scene to another are pretty cool.
    Definitely a guilty pleasure of mine.
    Could they capture the same lightning in a bottle?
    Hard to say. If they had the same writers and cast but they pretty much tied up everyones story.

    Anyone know what the writer has done since?

    As much as I like this film, I think that they have taken this one as far as it will go.

    As for the DVD on the otherhand- they should re-release it with an anamorphic transfer and some extras. I'll certainly be willing to purchase that.

    Yeah, but it's made for tv and it has different actors. It definitely won't be the same.

    If they wait another few years, they can do a sequel about the 20-year reunion.

    Thats a horrible idea and the girl from Roswell is going to play Michelle?
    Noooo!!

    Do it with the originals or nothing.

    Maybe they will lok at the success of Dumb and Dumberere and think twice about this.


    I do like the Special Edition DVD idea though.

    "Michelle, what does this remind you of?" "Yeah, this lady is totally sick."

    This is my favorite movie, I would love to see a special edition dvd.
