Alicia Was Hot Stuff In '93
19 February 2008 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

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.
