* BrokenAesop: Debatable. The Aesop of the movie is ostensibly ' be yourself!' and is highlighted when Romy and Michele change from their business women suits into the bright, colorful clothes that they made themselves and everyone likes it! Of course, at the end, the [[strike:goth]] aggressively frumpy chick is seen getting a make over from Romy and Michele. Apparently, you should follow your own style, but only if it's cheery, bright and sexy. Aggressive frumpiness is not acceptable.

Cut natter.
** Unless you're being frumpy as a defense mechanism because being yourself in a high school setting leaves you open for others to take advantage of you. *** Agreed. She'd already sharpened up considerably just to go to the reunion. After getting over her past feelings for Sandy and hooking up with Clarence, it's believable that she'd want to finally move even further on from the days of high school.

* AvoidTheDreadedGRating: Averted. The light-hearted comedy has no sex, nudity, or violence but got slapped with an R rating because it had too many bad words. The filmmakers refused to change the dialogue and kept the rating. Lisa Kudrow criticized the MPAA for their decision while promoting the film.

* DawsonCasting: The entire cast play their teenage selves in the high school flashbacks even though they're all clearly in their thirties. Though, to be fair, this adds to the charm of the film.

Moved to Trivia
* DawsonCasting: Justified in the high school scenes because most of the movie takes place when the characters are 28.

* ThrowItIn: Lisa Kudrow (who, in RealLife, [[GeniusDitz has a biology degree from Vassar]]) made up the entire glue formula on the spot. -->Um, well, ordinarily when you make glue, first, you need to thermoset your resin, and then after it cools, you have to mix in an epoxide, which is really just a fancy-schmancy name for any simple oxygenated adhesive, right? And then I thought maybe, just maybe, you could raise the viscosity by adding a complex glucose derivative during the emulsification process, and it turns out I was right!

* TheOtherDarrin: Both leads of course. Katherine Heigl in particular does a spot on version of Lisa Kudrow's accent from the original movie (although Kudrow played Michele and Heigl plays Romy...).

Added DiffLines:
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Heather Mooney to both Romy and Michele. Between the friends themselves, Romy is more determined, savvy, and assertive, making her a Tomboy to ditzy, easygoing Michele's Girly Girl.
