Mira Sorvino Campaigns For ''Romy & Michele'' Reunion

It’s a Reunion reunion: Mira Sorvino is looking forward to dusting off her prom dress and dropping a few IQ points to reteam with Lisa Kudrow for a sequel to their 1997 cult comedy Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion.

The Oscar-winner joined forces with the Friends star to play a pair of ditzy besties returning home to attend their 10th high school reunion. The ’90s sidesplitter spawned a 2005 made-for-TV prequel, Romy & Michele: In the Beginning, which starred Katherine Heigl. Sorvino, however, hopes Hollywood producers will agree to bring the two original actresses back for a follow-up.

“Yeah, we’ve talked about doing another reunion movie,” Mira told “It would be 15 [years] now, but we’ll see if it ever happens. It’s just so silly and fun and it really has resonance with various audiences. It’s just a fun underdog buddy comedy of two very stupid people who have good hearts eventually.”

Interesting, since she didn't get along with Lisa Kudrow when they were filming the movie.

The original movie was fine enough given what it set out to accomplish, but I hardly think it warrants a sequel thirteen years later.

Kudrow is also about 5 times the comedic actress Sorvino could ever hope to be.

If Romy and Michele end up as a couple, it would be a great idea. Plus I want to hear what music would go on the soundtrack.

Miro Sorvino is just trying to resurect her career.

She should turn lesbian and then come out of the closet. It worked for Ricky Martin.

The first film is hysterical. They should do another... got knows they do sequels to many other less amusing properties.

I love the first 2/3 of R&M, but it all falls apart in the end. Still, I would love to watch a sequel --it could be a lot of fun.

Kudrow doesn't exactly have much of a career.

Poor thing never got out under the shadow of Teri Garr.

Loved the original movie, but don't want to see a sequel.

Romy and Michelle won't be very fucking cute when they're forty.
