Clueless is a 1995 American coming-of-age romantic comedy film written and directed by Amy Heckerling. It stars Alicia Silverstone, Stacey Dash, Paul Rudd and Brittany Murphy, and was produced by Scott Rudin and Robert Lawrence. It is loosely based on Jane Austen's 1815 novel Emma, updating the setting to modern-day Beverly Hills. The film's director, Heckerling studied real Beverly Hills high school students to get the lingo and feel for how real teens in the 1990s talked. The famous quote “as if!” came from Heckerling's study of these teens. The film grossed $56 million in the United States, received generally positive reviews from critics, and has developed a cult following. The film was followed by a spin-off television sitcom and series of books.
Clueless Gamer - Critical response - Netflix
The film was viewed to be the start of impactful teen flicks that had strong influences over fashion trends and lingo. Fashion as a form of self-expression played an important role in the narrative and character development of the film, television series, and novels, something Alice Leppert examines. ^ Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film three-and-a-half out of four stars. Janet Maslin of The New York Times notes “Even if Clueless runs out of gas before it's over, most of it is as eye-catching and cheery as its star.” Peter Travers of Rolling Stone gave the film four stars, contrasting it to the more adult-oriented film about teenagers released around the same time, Kids, stating “The materialism in Clueless is almost as scary as the hopelessness in Kids.”
The film was well received by critics. Review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes gives it a score of 81% based on reviews from 57 critics and judged it “Certified Fresh” with an average rating of 6.9/10, the site's critical consensus reads: “A funny and clever reshaping of Emma, Clueless offers a soft satire that pokes as much fun at teen films as it does at the Beverly Hills glitterati.” On Metacritic, the film has a 68 out of 100 rating based on 18 reviews, indicating “generally positive reviews”.
