Romy And Michele's High School Reunion is an utterly ridiculous movie that people seem to either love or absolutely hate. I happen to love it because I'm a man of exquisite taste, though I did manage to restrain myself enough to keep any references out of my wedding. Apparently the same cannot be said for other fans. In fact, more than a few of them over the years have apparently invited star Alan Cumming to do the three-way dance during their ceremonies.

The former Good Wife star was chatting it up this week with People TV when he was asked to comment on his ridiculous dance sequence during the climax of Romy And Michele. While offering his take and openly wondering why the hell anyone even cast him for the role in his first American movie, he started discussing how much fans love it.

"People actually ask me and I think I'm going to do it. Like they'll say, 'Would you come and do the Romy and Michele dance with me and my husband or me and my wife at our wedding?'... Well, I think they just think it would be a hilarious thing, and they think, 'It's worth I'd ask.'... People often do it, and they send me videos. I like that, and they have maybe the bride and the groom and the bride's best friend or something and they reenact it."

At the end of the day, weddings are about expressing love in front of family and friends. For some, that means having a very serious affair where everyone silently reflects on a couple's journey, and for others, that means having as much fun as possible to celebrate. Fortunately, there's no right or wrong way to do a wedding. So, if the newlyweds want to have a six hour mass, followed by music-less mingling, they should do that. If they want to reenact the dance from Romy and Michele, they should do that too.

Alan Cumming definitely seems interested in giving a random yes at some point, though whether that ends up happening is unclear. The only thing I can promise is if that ever did happen, it would be the most viral video on the Internet the following day. There are simply too many Romy and Michele fans and too many people who enjoy random celebrity appearances, and that is a perfect marriage of both.

And because I know you want to watch the whole dance now after this huge build-up, you can check it out below...

There's something to be said for a movie that knows exactly what it is and just celebrates that. This dance sequence is a perfect reminder of how much Romy and Michele's High School Reunion gets that. Now, if you'll excuse me, I cut my foot before and my shoe is filling up with blood.
