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.

A gag-inducing Four Loko misfire.

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

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.

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

Time Out

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.

...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.

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.
