Shallow, rich and socially successful Cher (Alicia Silverstone) is at the top of her Beverly Hills high school’s pecking scale. Seeing herself as a matchmaker, Cher first coaxes two teachers into dating each other. Emboldened by her success, she decides to give hopelessly klutzy new student Tai (Brittany Murphy) a makeover. When Tai becomes more popular than she is, Cher realises that her disapproving ex-stepbrother (Paul Rudd) was right about how misguided she was – and falls for him.
So I watched this movie for the millionth time, and have finally decided to write a blog post about it. Clueless is such a classic.
One thing I found really refreshing about it, is that the pretty popular girl isn’t actually mean. Sure, she’s spoilt, and has no concept of money.. but she isn’t mean.
The movie is very funny, but also kind of predictable. …or maybe I just think that because I’ve seen it so much.
I don’t know what it is about girly movies. Sometime you’re just in the mood for a funny, stupid, romantic, teen comedy.
Like Elle in Legally Blonde, you just can’t help but like Cher, even though you know that if you met her in real life you’d probably despise her.
What’s your favourite girly teen movie?
