Solid little fun film
23 November 2015 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

This is a 22-minute short film known as "Clarissa" or "Ckarissa, Now" and it follows up on "Clarissa Explains It All" a television series that ended one year earlier. This one here was made in 1995, so it has its 20th anniversary now. Initially, it was intended as a pilot episode for a new series starring Melissa Joan Hart, but it did not get picked up. This is quite a shame as I thought this was a funny little watch. Joan Hart is the epitomes of harmless, cute and quirky and everything that try-hard Zooey Deschanel can only dream of being these days. MJH really works wonders here with the character, she feels truly authentic and it's obvious she's having fun with reprising her role. Robert Klein proves his comedic talent in here as well. I recommend the watch. Almost a must-see for fans of "Clarissa Explains It All" and in "Clarissa" MHJ talks to the audience again breaking the 4th wall, for example in the very last shot. Good watch. Thumbs up.
