Esther Lisk-Carew and Jass Thethi from Well Spoken Tokens return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Esther’s choice Clueless.

 

Clueless is the 1995 teen comedy from Amy Heckerling loosely based on Jane Austen’s Emma. Set in Beverly Hills Cher (Alicia Silverstone) with her best friend Dionne (Stacey Dash) are the popular girls at High School who give newcomer Tai (Britanny Murphy) a makeover and play matchmaker to her teachers to get perfect grades. It also stars Paul Rudd in his breakout role as Cher’s stepbrother Josh.

From its grunge lite soundtrack (Radiohead, No Doubt) Calvin Klein references, and Cher’s entire wardrobe there is no escaping the 90s – and that isn’t a bad thing! Clueless reinvented the teen genre and led the way for films like 10 Things I Hate About You and to some extend Legally Blonde. The makeover trope in Clueless may begin superficial but at its heart is that actually being a good person is more important and it’s okay to just be yourself.

Scores 

Despite being 25 years old Clueless doesn’t feel dated or an old film, Clueless is funny, has lots of heart and it’s only one hour and 37 minutes long. Generous scores all round for recommendability and small screen score give Clueless a very respectable overall score of 4.42.
