Excess Baggage (1997)
The Australian rapper appears as Alicia Silverstone's iconic character Cher in the video, which was released online last week.
As stars continue to be inspired by the movie almost 20 years on, we take a fond look back at the cast and what they went on to do after Clueless:
Alicia Silverstone (Cher Horowitz)
Alicia Silverstone played seemingly shallow socialite Cher - famously branded "a virgin who can't drive" and "hymenally challenged" - in the high-school adaptation of Jane Austen's Emma.
Prior to Clueless, Silverstone's credits included ABC comedy-drama The Wonder Years and a number of Aerosmith videos. The film propelled her to further fame, and she went on to star in Joel Schumacher's 1997 movie Batman & Robin, crime-comedy Excess Baggage (1997) with Benicio Del Toro and Christopher Walken, and romantic drama Blast from the Past (1999) opposite Brendan Fraser.
In a new interview with Bullett magazine, the now 35-year-old poses in sexy lingerie and talks to her Clueless director Amy Heckerling about that tumultuous time in her life.
"There are so many things I would have done differently after Clueless, but I think we all have that period in our lives where we think, if I could just press the restart button!," she candidly admits.
Trading on her sudden popularity, a then 18-year-old Alicia got her own production company, First Kiss Productions, and put out the critical bomb Excess Baggage.
"When I was 5 years old, I used to go to my dad's office -- he had a little real estate company. I would sit at a desk and photocopy things and act like I was his secretary. Looking back, I
The Queen Latifah-produced primetime soap has "Sex and the City" aspirations, and for a lot of viewers, it may be their first time seeing Dash since she introduced "hymenally challenged" and "vehicular sex" to the pop culture lexicon as Dionne Davenport in "Clueless."
She's been a busy little bee, though. Here are some of our favorite (and least favorite) uses of her talent since we fell in love with her in 1995...
Low: "Illegal in Blue," 1995
Capitalizing on a "Clueless" boost, this direct-to-video noir came out around the same time as Dash's theatrical breakthrough. Unfortunately, it also included a pretty gritty sex scene.
High: "Clueless: the series," 1996-1999
Alicia Silverstone may have had "better things" to do after the film -- we saw "Excess Baggage,
What is an action film? That's been the tricky question that we've had to unconvincingly answer before putting this list of titles together.
Personally, I'm a massive fan of the Harrison Ford movie Clear And Present Danger, but have held off including it here because the action moments are few and far between (there's one really good sequence, but not too much else action-wise). And to be fair, one or two of the movies that have made the cut here could have a similar argument at least wafted in their direction. It's not been an easy list to compile.
But the 12 I've picked here - and I've kept it to Hollywood blockbuster flicks - are action movies at heart, even if the accelerator is relaxed for periods within the films chosen.
Based on a novel by Jane Heller, the movie will unfortunately not involve a kidnapping. However, it
The genre doesn’t seem to matter anymore, every movie seems to boil down to the onscreen pair. Even supernatural movies like Twilight thrive on the romance aspect. Forget the plot, forget the jokes, it’s all about the chemistry onscreen. You either have it or you don’t. It’s too early to tell, but looks like Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler’s latest outing is going to be another dud for this exact reason. Besides Marley and Me, Aniston hasn’t shined on the big screen, and we can chalk that one up to a dog. This time she’s opposite Butler and nothing against him, but the two just don’t seem to click like you want from your onscreen couple.
In honor of what I’m expecting to be some pretty nauseating chemistry in The Bounty Hunter, I

The Case: I'll be totally honest here and admit that I was pretty late to latch onto the Benicio del Toro phenomenon. He never really registered on my radar for his role in Big Top Peewee or while playing a James Bond villain (the youngest one in history) in License to Kill, and neither of these films were exactly worth re-exploring for the purposes for this column. It suffices to say that, when I first took notice of Benicio, it was when he starred opposite Alicia Silverstone in the ill-conceived caper Excess Baggage. Boy, did I feel sorry for him, but the fellow did make an impression (even over an unusually lackluster Christopher Walken) as the only salvageable aspect of the movie.
The project is titled Civilization, put together by artist Marco Brambilla (director of Demolition Man and Excess Baggage) and design studio Crush. It's comprised of close to 500 looping pop culture clips, many of them popular and classic movies. Can you identify them all?
There's Ghostbusters, 300, Superman 2, The Seven Year Itch, The Fall, Sin City, Rent, Scarface, Enchanted, The Lord of the Rings, Zardoz, Planet Terror, Close Encounters of the Third Kind... It goes on and on! Crazy stuff.
