Critic Reviews for Clueless
Heckerling's sharp eye for the wallpaper of high school life -- a background strewn with nose-job bandages, preternaturally baggy pants, cell phones -- and her sharp screenwriter's ear for teen-speak make Clueless rich, affectionate fun.
Silverstone's read of Cher -- not to mention her overflowing cup of cuteness -- makes the character likable.
In a summer of great thrillers and action pictures, the comedies have been few and feeble. But Clueless stands out as a picture that's both funny and a lot of fun.
Audience Reviews for Clueless
Its plot may be razor thin, but Alicia Silverstone's irresistible charm, the casts blooming performances and quotable & humorous splendor makes Clueless and cult film that still holds up to any generation of teenagers. 4.5/5
"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.

|Travis:||I would like to say this. Tardiness is not something you can do on your own. Many, many people contributed to my tardiness. I would like to thank my parents for never giving me a ride to school, the LA city bus driver who took a chance on an unknown kid and last but not least, the wonderful crew from McDonalds who spend hours making those egg McMuffins without which I might never be tardy.|
