"...One of the brightest and goofiest comedies in a while..."
A pair of none-too-bright best girl friends, ashamed to go to their ten-year high school reunion with nothing to show for the past decade, decide to exorcise their teenage demons by showing up at the bash and pretending they've come a long way, baby. While their ruse holds up against the former jocks and cheerleaders, a spiteful loser from their past is determined to ferret out the truth.
