Clueless Reviews

July 15, 2020
Silverstone has been getting the superstar-is-born treatment by the entertainment press, and "Clueless" should make it a reality.

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.
August 7, 2007
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.

By the time you skip out of the theater, you've had a great time but can't remember a single reason why.

Silverstone is a winner. And so is the movie, which also functions as a lunatic update of Emma, the 1816 Jane Austen novel.

While Cher and the other characters here may seem vacuous and spoiled, Heckerling -- who wrote the script as well -- is a gentle satirist.

Parents are traditionally invisible and/or lame in teen flicks, but Dan Hedaya, as Silverstone's sharklike litigator dad, does a drop-dead Robert Shapiro, biting off some of the best lines in the movie.

Silverstone guilelessly glides through her role like a Pam-sprayed charge card.

The movie is aimed at teenagers, but like all good comedies, it will appeal to anyone who has a sense of humor and an ear for the ironic.

Rarely do you find a film so aptly titled as this one.

As appealing as Alicia Silverstone is (and she possesses that ethereal 'star quality' which is sadly lacking in many of today's up-and-coming performers), her presence can't quite elevate this breezy comedy to the level of a modern classic.
