A veritable classic of '90s teen cinema, Clueless follows Cher Horowitz (Alicia Silverstone), a student at Beverly Hills High who is sweet, pretty, popular, rich and...clueless. Loosely based on the Jane Austen novel Emma, this film begins as Cher and her best friend Dion (Stacey Dash) decide to mentor the new girl at school (Brittany Murphy). Complicating matters: Cher’s socially conscious stepbrother Josh (Paul Rudd) is home from college and there's a handsome new guy in town who loves Billie Holiday. Clueless does a wonderful job of skewering high school woes, life in L.A., and the fads, fashions, and cultural air of the 1990s.

Why See This Film

Fourteen years after she directed the iconic '80s high school comedy Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Amy Heckerling returned with this irresistible gem, featuring an era-appropriate soundtrack (with No Doubt, Supergrass, Velocity Girl and Coolio) and future stars Brittany Murphy, Paul Rudd and lady-of-that-moment Alicia Silverstone. It also spawned a TV series and a handful of enduring catch phrases. Come roll with your homies, already!
