Kudrow's Michele is a deadpan delight.

Creative Loafing

Robin Schiff's screenplay is filled with memorable zings ("You're just as cute as me," Michele assures Romy. "In some cultures, maybe even cuter."), Sorvino and Kudrow are an irresistible team, and Janeane Garofalo shows up to steal scenes with aplomb.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Movie Metropolis

Kudrow and Sorvino are fun to watch, Garafalo is deliciously acerbic, and the whole Valley Girl reunion thing is a stroke of light-and-fluffy genius.
