Clueless (1995)


Alicia Silverstone
Stacey Dash
Brittany Murphy
Paul Rudd

Directed by Amy Heckerling

In the 90s there was a coming of age movie that everyone had to see, it stared Alicia Silverstone and I never forgot her name after this movie. Clueless is fun, enjoyable and easy to follow. The movie has a nice ring to it in delivering it’s comedy and the romantic edge is well chimed into it, even though at first it seemed very odd.
The movie is written and directed by Amy Heckerling (and it is loosely based on Jane Austen's 1815 novel Emma). Clueless is seen as one of the best teen movies ever.
Along with Alicia Silverstone, this movie also has the late Brittany Murphy.

When it comes to the delivery of the actors in this movie, each made it look simple, like they have been at this role all their lives, it is this that makes the movie something to enjoy.

The movie’s plot is very simple, it is like we are going through life being Cher (Alicia Silverstone). She is a rich, popular, self-involved lady who is at the head of her crew Dionne (Stacey Dash) and Tai (Brittany Murphy).
The movie explores how she tries to manage the lives of her friends, from how they look to who they should date. Although her desires for them sometimes are rebelled against and her friends lay their own paths, Cher is one who tries very hard to be in control of the lives of others.
Also we get to meet Josh (Paul Rudd), Josh is Cher reliable and dependable ex-stepbrother. Josh is not particularly fond of Cher’s behavior and neither is she of him. His place in this movie is the person Cher can call on when she needs help.

That is all of the plot we can share about this movie without turning this review to a spoiler, just see this movie again and you will still find yourself with a smile as the movie moves along gently.

Made on a budget of $12 million dollars the movie closed in the box office with over $56 million. The home video sales were awesome giving this movie a huge cult following.

The huge cult following of this movie led to a spin-off television sitcom which was not so successful and ran for three seasons. The movie also had series of books made.
There could be a remake made of this movie, but I wonder why because I doubt if it can give the same delivery as this.
