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 »

This movie is another one of those feel good pictures you can't go wrong with. It's light and breezy like cruising the boulevard with the top down and it offers lots of laughs to boot.
Amy Heckerling has brought us another winner with a great supporting cast. A young teenage girl coming of age in of all places, Beverly Hills. The lead character, "Cher" played brilliantly by Alicia Silverstone, is a self centered high school girl in the beginning of the picture who's only interests include clothes, cars and credit cards. As the film progresses, she begins to mature and actually begins to care about other people, not to mention her environment. It's worth renting anytime. Just like "European Vacation" it doesn't matter how many times you see it, it still makes you laugh and that's worth it all.
