The high school where the students attend is "Bronson Alcott High School". Bronson Alcott was a nineteenth-century Transcendentalist writer best known for starting an ultimately unsuccessful Utopian community called "Fruitlands" and for being the father of "Little Women" author Louisa May Alcott. At one time, Amy Heckerling dated Bronson Pinchot (whose middle name is Alcott, after the author). "Bronson Alcott" is also the name of the prep school in Nat Hentoff's 1976 novel 'This School is Driving Me Crazy', where the protagonist's father is headmaster. See more »

Miss Stoeger, I would just like to say that physical education in this school is a disgrace. I mean, standing in line for forty minutes is hardly aerobically effective. I doubt I've worked off the calories in a stick of Carefree gum.

I wasn't expecting much of this movie, until I started seeing it. It turned out to be quite entertaining. "Clueless" is about the shallow and rather stupid rich girl Cher Horowitz, who only cares about herself and how popular she is. But then she starts this kind of 'project', together with her best friend. One of the aspects of this project is about making a new silly girl of their school look as 'cool' as they are. This 'silly' girl is very well performed by Brittany Murphy. I hardly recognized her!
The lead role is for Alicia Silverstone who gives an excellent performance as well. Furthermore there is another great performance Paul Rudd (who we also know as Phoebe's boyfriend in "Friends"). Also Dan Hedaya and Breckin Meyer (Road Trip) are funny.
Funny and very entertaining movie from the director of "Look Who's Talking (Too). Definitely worth watching!
