In Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion (1997) there are nods to fictional brands Red Apple cigarettes and Big Kahuna burger used in many Quentin Tarantino films. The inclusion puts Romy in the “Tarantino-verse” while being the only film outside his and Robert Rodriguez repertoires to ever appear.

  2. Mira Sorvino dated Tarantino back in the day. This was either a call out to him OR they were already broken up and this (and a Big Kahuna burger bag also spotted in the movie) was someone having some fun. ^1

  3. The fun question here…..does this make Romy a part of Tarantino’s "realer than real" universe? Or his "movie-movie" universe? Or does this make a completely different universe altogether?

    For those wondering the differences, here is a short primer on the two main differences…

    It’s also possible Tarantino decides it was just a fun gift to his girlfriend at the time Mira Sorvino (who plays Romy) – but considering how seriously he has treated his universes (and his films in general) it seems likely he may have considered the ramifications beyond just being sweet to his girl.

    Regardless, it’s kind of fun to imagine that Mia Wallace may have once considered seeing "Romy and Michele" on a date with Vincent Vega. ‘

    Or, maybe Romy running into Mia in the bathroom at Jack Rabbit Slim’s.
