19. 'Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion' (1997)

Question: How are you supposed to endure the hell of a 10-year high school reunion if you've done nothing with your life since graduating? Answer: You go with your fellow "loser" of a best friend and tell everybody you invented Post-It notes. This 1997 comedy might have been marketed like a female Bill & Ted romp (minus the literal time-traveling, naturally), but credit Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino for giving these so-called airheads heart; you laugh at their self-obsessed cluelessness and you cringe when they let all their insecurities and school-day wounds turn them against each other. Mostly, you wish that Kudrow and Sorvino had found more projects to do together.—DAVID FEAR
