Sika’s 100 Greatest Movies of All Time! 76. Clueless (1995)
76. Clueless [DVD] (1995)
Inspired by their success, Cher takes under her wing Tai (Brittany Murphy), a “clueless” transfer student. While trying to make a match for Tai, Cher attempts to find a boyfriend of her own.
Mel: Do you know what time it is?
Cher: A watch doesn’t really go with this outfit.
Sex. Clothes. Popularity. Is there a problem here? (tagline)
Review: This is one of my favorite high-school/teen/girl movies ever. And it should have been the beginning of an amazing career for the talented Alicia Silverstone.
Based on this film alone (oh, and The Crush), she could have become Meg Ryan-big, but since she made worse movie choices than Sylvester Stallone she ended up in latex; fighting Arnold Schwarzenegger with George “Batman with nipples” Clooney. And that is sad.
The movie is damn funny though.
Nerdiest Movie Trivia: Although Paul Rudd’s character, Josh, is in college and is older than the other characters who are still in high school, Stacey Dash, who plays the best friend Dionne, is actually 3 years older than Paul Rudd. And personally I think, none of them seemed to have aged these past sixteen years either… It’s like something out of a Stephen King story…
