Romy and Michele: In the Beginning (television) Television movie premiering on ABC Family on May 30, 2005. Before they rocked their high school reunion, Romy and Michele took a rocking road trip to Hollywood. It’s ten years ago, and all Romy and Michele have is a destination and a dream. Soon they are dipping their toes in the Pacific but they can’t even set foot in Ozone, the coolest club in town. With their future on the line, they are sabotaged by a crazed PR agent and a super-needy supermodel until their California dreaming seems to be coming to a very un-Hollywood ending. Are they destined for drabness or can a little help from some lucky shoes, unlikely friends, and their idol Paula Abdul show them what it really means to be a star? Directed by Robin Schiff.
