Clueless (1995)

Rated R for only about 2 instances of cussing.

The Next 145 Project takes us into the world of pretty & popular teenagers in sun-filled Beverly Hills. Amy Heckerling’s flick isn’t all that deep, but Alicia Silverstone’s big-hearted Cupid—wait, make that Cher—has a lot more going on in that beautiful head than first meets the peepers. However, the romance between step-siblings Silverstone & Paul Rudd is HIGHLY questionable and the satire & the laughs don’t always land. It’s a credit to the director & her actors, especially her young star, that this rom-com works as well as it does.
