Alicia Silverstone became an "emancipated minor" at age 15 during the shooting of the film meaning she was legally on her own and not a dependent of her parents. This way she could avoid child labor laws, which would have restricted how many hours she could work on the film. See more »

Beautiful, isn't it?
Yeah. Yeah, it is.
Look, I'm sorry about the article. I won't do it again.
Look, I know I'm not the world's greatest writer, but, uh, believe me it's - it's hard to take being better by a fourteen-year-old kid. It's okay, really.
No, it's not. You don't know how hard it is for me to make friends. I mean my parents made me skip two grades in school. My only friend is Cheyenne, and it's only because... well, my mom and her mom went to college together. So, she kinda has to. ...

Word was that "you have to see this Alicia Silverstone; she's really hot." That was back in 1993, so I checked out the movie. This was Alicia's film debut and she got a lot of hype for this movie.
I discovered, yeah, Silverstone has a pretty face, but that's about it. The movie was nothing special; not something you haven't seen before. Cary Elwes, not Silverstone, ruins the picture. Not literally him; the character he plays: "Nick." What a dork!
Nick is an incredibly stupid guy who befriends the 14-year-old "Adrienne" (Silverstone), who is his neighbor. The girl, who then expects more from the guy and doesn't get it, vents her wrath on him. Nick is so annoying I didn't care what the stupid neighbor did to him. Both of the lead characters deserved each other.
Whatever happened to Silverstone? I guess she never really made it to stardom. The last I remember her was playing "Batgirl" with George Clooney and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
