Romy and Michele's High School Reunion

Question: In one of the flashbacks, after Kristy put the magnets on Michele's back, why did she eat Romy's hamburger? This just struck me as odd since the "popular girls" in movies are usually portrayed as dieting often, and they usually don't eat the junk food that the non-popular characters eat.

Answer: It was a way of her showing Romy that being popular (in high school) comes with "power" over the less popular students and ability to do what she wants without fear of retribution. Conversely, in order to try to be liked by a popular student, a less popular student will yield to the popular student and/or give (let her have) anything she wants, including her lunch. [It doesn't always work this way.].

Answer: She ate it because she's a bitch and wanted to hurt Romy. She didn't take it to eat for food.

Question: When Romy goes to what I'm assuming is a dating agency, the lady she speaks to says to her something along the lines of "try VH1", what exactly does this mean?

Answer: She tries to get on a dating show that airs on MTV. She is over the age limit for contestants and the lady tells her to try VH1 as a joke.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie when Romy reunites with Heather Moony, Heather tells Romy that she invented the cigarette which she is smoking and takes a puff to show how fast it burns down, and the cigarette burns to the butt. But in the next scene her cigarette is still to its half-way point. (00:07:25)
