It's not easy being the most popular and glamorous girl at Beverly Hills High. Especially when you're the envy of scheming Betties (female babes), persistent Barney's (unattractive guys), loser loadies (potheads), and teachers who go postal (freak out) when you turn your homework in late! Yet somehow 15-year-old Cher (Silverstone) keeps it all together, even fining time for extracurricular projects like finding a love match for her debate class teacher... (Paramount)

A surprisingly funny and insightful teen comedy. It's never vulgar or crass like most of its ilk; instead, it draws humor from colorful (yet accurate) portrayals of a wide range of high-school archetypes. And it's pretty sweet-natured as well.

At first glance, it seems like a dumb teen comedy. At second glance, it seems like a fairly nasty satire of teenage girls. But, in fact, it's a movie about how all these people have a lot more depth, a lot more intelligence, and a lot more kindness than their roles in society dictate. It's smart, sweet, and its real humor comes not from the easy jokes but from the implications behind them.

A teen comedy that is totally self-aware, with an authentic soul and surprising insight towards adolescence. Character types, clothing styles, music choices and well-crafted dialogue represent a cross-section of 90s pop culture. Paul Rudd and Brittany Murphy are highlights here, showcasing natural cool and absolute charm which showed the mainstream that grunge had substance. Though it would spawn a number of imitators over the next decade, none had the heart or development of this trend-setter.

I actually thought the movie captured my personality and sense of humor really well at times. Paul Rudd being a moody college boy and listening to Radiohead is just the greatest thing is it not? All of the performers are great and have good comedic timing, especially Alicia Silverstone. Aside from using the r-word this was really funny and well done. It's not crude or crass or annoying like a handful of teen comedies today. I enjoyed it.

This movie here is a great example of how to make a successful movie translation of a book; keep the important parts, play with the rest. This movie is watchable and enjoyable also by people who are not familiar with Austen's novel Emma, while of course knowing the source material lets one appreciate the interesting reinterpretations in the movie. Oh, it is light and frothy teen pop movie, but I never was one to consider lightness to be a fault, just the opposite.

It's so silly that this is a movie that actually means something to people, like this movie defined something for them. The only thing this movie says to me is, "When you're rich, beautiful, and popular, if anything goes wrong: Make out with your step-brother." The End.

Maybe the best highscool movie of all time. The dialouge is so witty and so funny they ought to teach a class on it. And Alicia Silverstone is so adorable as Cher its hard to imagine how she ended up in such a career standstill. Also you can catch yourself a glimpse a "Before" Brittany Murphy, who is entirely unrecognizable.

An early forerunner of what would soon become the great teen movie franchise. However, as an exception to most, there's a decent script, characters and acting in this one. Probably exists more as a guilty pleasure for Gen Y's rather than one being revisited by today's generation of teens, but on the other hand it's clever self-awareness is still worth something.

I have to say, if Jane Austen spent some time in the modern era, I think she'd approve of Clueless. In particular, I think she'd like what Amy Heckerling did with Mr. Elton. Moving Emma from Georgian-Regency England to Beverly Hills might seem like the dumbest idea ever, but the great script and terrific cast (many of whom we barely knew at the time) ends up making this a truly inspired adaptation. My only regret is, I hoped one day to see Toni Collette play Brittany Murphy's mother. :(

A dreary, vapid presentation of similarly dreary and vapid people becomes an agonising chore to indure, once you realise that Heckerling actually buys in to the lifestyles of these egotistically vain and shallow people, rather than regarding them as the vacuous wastelands they really are. Rudd scores best of the cast, creating a centered character who would have been a far more interesting audience surrogate, but the absurdly heightened and arch dialogue kills all of his colleagues.

Sure this is one of those 'everyone-saw-it' tween movies of the 90's, and why did everyone love it? I don't know. The movie doesn't strike a chord for me because there's no reality to it, nothing interesting to it, no real comedy or convincing characters. It's all contrived and kind of lifeless. What did happen to Alicia Silverstone though?

Top badass moment? “Need You Around” by the Smoking Popes played over the end credits. I should hate this film. I’m not its demographic and its vacuous characters, pandering to American consumerism whilst highlighting the ideology that money and looks can get you anything, should have me throwing it into the nearest landfill. But somehow it’s fun, has a good soundtrack and Alicia Silverstone’s cute smile. I'm sorry, I feel I’ve let everyone down. No cats, chainsaws or decapitations.

Understanding why the film is popular and what it contributes to the era, I won't give it an unfair rating. It's ahead of other teen comedies like she's all that....which I've never seen..Alicia Silverstone is obviously a sub par actress. I'm overjoyed and thankful that her career is over..furthermore I'm grateful that her and O'Donnell had the fortuitous opportunity to star together in the worst Batman movie ever made. Neutralizing both the pests, killing two birds with one stone. MUSIC.

Pretty decent. Even though it came to define the "what-ev-eerr" dialogue, it isn't just an ironic take on adolescence at the time. It also manages to be a decent, straight-forward story, and it actually has a heart towards its characters. 1 for Dan Hedaya.

Reverse teen comedy. Friendships matter. Cher might seem to care about shopping, but commits to make people's lives better - even if it involves doing a makeover on Tai. Smart, square, virgin, knows art (Monet and Botticelli), snubs Radiohead, tries to find a love for Tai, but feels lonely, falls for a gay James Dean-like, eventually falling for her half-bro in such an edgy move. There's even a 2001 reference - phone resembling monolith - and some of the brigthest mise-en-scène in any teen flic

Not really a critique of materialism because it's too in love with its characters, but it's surprisingly observant. Heckerling understands this valley girl teen milieu well and creates characters that are gentle mockeries with likeable qualities. Silverstone was perfectly cast as Cher, and it's a shame she didn't have a better career because she is funny and charming as a rich superficial ditz who broadens her horizons (somewhat), and Hedaya is hilarious as her belligerent but loving father.

The title is apt for all the wrong reasons; this is teen comedy at its most childish and uninspired. The high school stereotypes are a staple for most films of this ilk (especially for this supposed satire), but the story they are placed in is so bland and surface-y that more complex (or at least extreme) characters are needed (only Murphy's Tai is ever really funny). The "satire" here needs to be much more gregarious and biting for it to make up for the lazy story and uninteresting characters.

Not seeing this until 2017 probably made this even worse for me but changing plots about 3 times throughout the film made it feel disjointed and chaotic. It didn't know which direction to go; instead, just felt like a "look how great we are! you should act like this!" type of almost mockumentary. Mostly found it irritating but with bits of self-realization throughout, notably a Radiohead song mocking teens would play a strategic points. Almost bad, almost ok, somewhere between

Was underappreciated at the time but seems to be properly appreciated now. The acting is quite stellar all around, although looking at some of their careers now maybe it was just cast really well). The Paul Rudd, Alicia Silverstone will they won't they thing was kind of gross. A college guy going after a girl who is 15/16 and used to be his step-sister. Weird....weird.

Though its become iconic and is a portrait of '90's culture, it's really not too special and, as far as teen movies go, is pretty average overall. Featuring a strong cast who turn in fine performances, especially Silverstone- who nails every detail of her character perfectly- and some clever, almost self-aware humor at points, it's also hindered by pretty weak supporting characters, a cluttered plot, and a romantic subplot that's pretty weird in hindsight. It's worth a look, but isn't so great.

It seems a bit dated now, but it's a fun little movie that doesn't take itself seriously, which is nice. It has several actors that weren't really big at the time but got bigger later, like Brittany Murphy, Paul Rudd and Donald Faison. While watching, I kept thinking that the plot didn't feel 'big' enough, and would better suit a TV show. It turns out, there was a TV show that ran from 1996 until 1999. I can't say it was good, but it was cute and sometimes funny.

Clueless is an entertaining, albeit rather pointless, film. Back in the day, Silverstone was definitely teenage crush material. Shawn, Rudd and Murphy were pretty good, and it was interesting to see a pre-Scrubs Faison. The script is good, never truly crossing the line into cringeworthy, and always remaining light-hearted. Definitely my favourite adaptation of Austen's Emma, contemporary or otherwise.

Frothy nonsense, but i have to admit it's still probably the best of it's kind for what it is. It's a little better than the John Hughes stuff, and certainly better than the wave of raunchier teen comedies that came a few years later in the wake of American Pie (ugh). Still, it was a few years too early for me to have any nostalgic attachment to this (unlike, um, Can't Hardly Wait) and it sure wears it's '90s affectations on it's sleeve.
