Pre-1995, the terms “as if” and “my bad” had yet to enter our everyday lexicon. Then Clueless came along, and life as we knew it would never be the same. This hilarious, witty teen film, directed by the awesome Amy Heckerling, who also made high school classic Fast Times at Ridgemont High, perfectly casts Alicia
Silverstone in the lead as Cher Horowitz, a rich Beverly Hills teenager who takes on the hopeless but lovable new girl Tai (Brittany Murphy, RIP) as a makeover project while trying to win the respect of her ex-stepbrother (Paul Rudd) who thinks her only direction in life is “toward the mall.” At tonight’s screening, return to the days when Supergrass and the Cranberries were the shit and Silverstone, a vegan, had yet to pre-chew her baby’s food.
