My cheeks hurt so much at the end from smiling throughout the whole film! Definitely a feel good film. A bit of Paul Rudd in his prime never hurt anyone ;)

Light as a cupcake but capturing, in its carefree way, the 90s zeitgeist, Clueless is probably what a lot of teen films aspire to be. It succeeds where many fail because it has a smart, witty script and kind approach to its characters. Its only real flaw is that it ends just as it's beginning: it's mostly first and no second act, so just as the story's problems are developing - soured friendships, work crises etc. - it immediately resolves them to have a nice scene before the credit roll. But despite that, Clueless is an excellent piece of escapist comedy. Those who allege that it's too superficial miss the point. Like Jane Austen's Emma, which it borrows its basic narrative from, Clueless seeks humour and romance in an insular world, and in my opinion finds them.
Alicia Silverstone plays Cher, a Beverly Hills high schooler who lives in luxury and doesn't have sharp eyes for consequence, but is a charming girl whose shallowness hides intelligence. Her best friend is Dionne (Stacey Dash), and together they "adopt" a socially clueless classmate, Tai (the late Brittany Murphy), to turn her into a popular girl. This charitable endeavour is inspired by Cher's newfound matchmaking abilities, though she doesn't seem to realise a budding affection in her own life, between herself and her idealistic ex-stepbrother, Josh (Paul Rudd).
Silverstone is perfect as Cher because she manages to balance adorability with silliness. Cher's a sheltered rich girl, but she's sweet and clever in a way which a lot of similar characters from other teen films aren't. Her dad (Dan Hedaya) is a gruff but deeply caring man and Josh is capably played by Rudd, who's made a career playing flawed nice guys. Murphy was a gifted comic actress, so watching her, in the light of her death, is somewhat bittersweet. Breckin Meyer plays a kind stoner, and Jeremy Sisto a popular boy. Donald Faison, best known as Dr. Chris Turk on Scrubs, plays a similar but broader character here; he's Dionne's boyfriend. Noted actor and playwright Wallace Shawn shows up as a lonely teacher, and is typically great.
Plenty of delightful romantic confusions keep Clueless rolling, like Cher's doomed "seduction" of a handsome classmate (Justin Walker). The script is packed with dialogue much subtler and funnier than it needs to be, as when Cher says: "Isn't my house classic? The columns date all the way back to 1972." At its core Clueless is a gentle satire of 90s teenage culture, just as Emma was a satire of early 19th-century middle-class culture. It's featherlight almost to a fault and doesn't care about drama so much as funny lines spoken by nice people. Sometimes that's all I want from a film. There's a great, unspoken misunderstanding that romantic comedies need to be stupid. Clueless, which is smarter than a new pin, proves that notion wrong.
