Critic Consensus: 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.

Critic Reviews for 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.
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.
Audience Reviews for Clueless
"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.
