Romy and Michele's High School Reunion

I can't believe how cute this episode is!

On the surface, Romy and Michele's High School Reunion is a very simple premise. Two friends, happy with their lot in life, suddenly realise that maybe their post-high school existence isn't as brilliant as they first thought. Car dealership cashier Romy White and unemployed fashionista Michele Weinberger decide to go to their ten-year high school reunion AND pose as successful businesswomen to impress their graduating class.

Their ruse? They invented Post-its!

It's a '90s pop culture bubble of a movie, but it's also more than it's fluffy exterior might suggest. It really is all about the power of friendship, and that success is measured on your own terms. To some, success might be marriage and children, to others it might be writing for Vogue or becoming a billionaire entrepreneur. To Romy and Michele, success is being themselves, with each other.

I would love to hear your thoughts on Romy and Michele's High School Reunion!

Hi! I'm Em. I created Verbal Diorama in 2018, and launched the podcast in February 2019 to rapturous applause and acclaim.... from my cat Jess.

The modus operandi of Verbal Diorama is simple: movies are tough to make! The coming together of a team of people from all walks of life to make something to entertain, delight and educate us for 90+ mins is not an easy task, and yet so many succeed at it. That must be something to celebrate.

I'm here to do just that - to celebrate movies. Their history and legacy, and why they remain so special to so many of us.

I mostly host solo, but often you'll hear my cat Jess in the background (she's 17 years old, and very loud!).

I love podcasts and listen to many, but never my own.

I unashamedly love The Mummy (1999) and Grease 2. I'm still looking for a cool rider.
