Movie Info

Jane Austen might never have imagined that her 1816 novel Emma could be turned into a fresh and satirical look at ultra-rich teenagers in a Beverly Hills high school. Cher (Alicia Silverstone) and Dionne (Stacey Dash), both named after "great singers of the past that now do infomercials," are pampered upper-class girls who care less about getting good grades than wearing the right clothes and being as popular as possible. But Cher, who lives with her tough yet warm-hearted lawyer dad (Dan

There's such a gaping discontinuity between her physical beauty and her vacant, gum-snapping personality that she's like a walking advertisement for everything that's right and wrong with America.

The summer's most compelling movie about teenagers.

A fresh, disarmingly bright and at times explosively funny comedy well worth a trip to the mall, even if it eventually runs out of gas.

Though this drifts at times as storytelling, it's mainly lightweight but personable fun.

Silverstone makes Cher's insularity appealingly innocent (even in the midst of crisis, she can't resist checking out the latest fashion lines), and an attempted seduction scene is sweetly hopeless.

While Miss Silverstone guides Cher through the witty costume changes that serve as character development, she's backed up by a solid supporting cast.

Its goal is humble: to walk the line between bubblegum pop that indulges trends, and a halfhearted critique of shallowness. I don't think this is what feminists mean by "having it all"...

'Clueless' is a sweet, comical, satiric, knowing film, and it's anything but clueless.

The most surprising thing about Clueless, given how enthusiastically it indicts its characters and their universe, is how much fun it is.

Clueless is a happy bubble, and Alicia Silverstone comes into her own as a confident young comedienne.

...although the movie isn't quite the classic it's been made out to be, it's a mindlessly diverting way to kill 97 minutes.

Smug and self-loathing.

The movie's simple yet spot-on characters and performances make the laughs timeless, no matter how firmly the film is set in 1995.

The fact that you instantly like these spoiled little rich kids is a testament to Amy Heckerling's skills as a screenwriter.

Sweet and fun. That's how I can describe it. Worth watching.

Cute, no other way to describe this movie. I am sure everyone has seen it by now too, so no real point reviewing it. Alicia's best role, I still love most of her outfits in this.
Now kind of sad viewing seeing Brittany Murphy - there's an actress I think could have gone further.

I would like to thank my parents for never giving me a ride to school, the LA city bus driver who took a chance on an unknown kid and last but not least, the wonderful crew from McDonalds who spend hours making those egg McMuffins without which I might never be tardy.
