A funny and clever reshaping of Emma, Clueless offers a soft satire that pokes as much fun at teen films as it does at the Beverly Hills glitterati.

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed Clueless.
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.
I watched it and not only thought it was hilarious but I felt like my world made a little bit more sense than it had before. One of my all time favorite films
Alicia Silverstone is a Cybill Shepherd who can act. This is a powerful combination. She deserves a slightly less stupid movie, and no doubt she will get many chances to make one.
There may never be another Clueless but writer-director Amy Heckerling gave us a gem for the ages.
The film's unevenness often works in its favour, and the fact that it now seems extremely dated doesn't matter one bit. It may not be perfect, but it's full of heart.
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"...
offers some of the best humor, entertainment, and social insight the teen comedy genre has to offer
Its plot may be razor thin, but Alicia Silverstone's irresistible charm, the casts blooming performances and quotable & humorous splendor makes Clueless and cult film that still holds up to any generation of teenagers. 4.5/5
"Clueless" is another addition to the 90's teen genre and for what it's worth, it is both the best and worst of it's kind. Showing teenage girls that you need to be trendy and rich to be popular is a bit overdoing it, because I am sure not every popular girl back then was rich. Regardless of that complaint, this film depicts high school to a T, compared to some of the other films, from the nice guy getting pushed by the way side, to the popular girl realizing what she truly is deep down. The cast works very well together here, creating the atmosphere that I was hoping this movie would deliver. Some of the big names we know today, definitely prove why they have been know through the years, as they are the standouts here. Not only is this film a great wake-up call to the popular people who are hellbent on staying that way, but it is also a very well-written film that showcases the directors talent in handling the cast with that material. It does not matter that the director eventually went on to disappoint fans, but the fact that this picture has stuck with many people through the past 20 or so years. In the end, did I love this movie? No, but it does it's job quite well, and for that, I really enjoyed myself.
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.
