1995: A year of great triumphs—Yahoo! is invented, Forrest Gump wins Best Picture, and Clueless coins the now-timeless term “my bad.” Yes, it was indeed 14 years ago that writer and director Amy Heckerling introduced us to the hilariously-Clueless, over-privileged high school clan—led by Cher (Alicia Silverstone), the reality-detached bimbo with a cause, and Josh (Paul Rudd), the adorably cute boy with brains. That year was also great for Brenda Walsh, er, Shannen Doherty, as she played her last great bitch role: Jason Lee’s girlfriend in Mallrats—the geek-filled, Kevin Smith achievement, about two bone-headed dudes who take refuge at a mall after getting dumped by their girlfriends on the same day. Catch both of these ’90s-era films together and recall the time that you, too, fled to the mall simply to sulk and ridicule others. Ticket includes one free beer.
