One of my favorite movies I feel doesn’t get enough love is Romy & Michele’s High School reunion, starring Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow as two 20-somethings who realize their 10-year high school reunion is coming up and begin to transform their lives so they can go back and impress their former classmates.
They come up with a story of inventing something they think no one will question them on -- this movie came out in 1997, before we all had tiny computers in our pockets to fact check these things. The product they choose is the subject of today’s episode, which, spoiler alert, was not invented by Romy or Michele.
I’m your host, Emily Prokop, and this is The Story Behind Post-It Notes.
