Goofs

Clueless is shown being shot on a studio soundstage, in actuality the film was shot entirely in practical locations. See more »

Crazy Credits

After Murphy is taken away in the ambulance at the end of the film, an explanation of her fate is given. Immediately after this, the film flashes back in time very briefly, showing a young Murphy posing for a photographer during the making of Clueless (1995). As soon as this quick moment has been revisited, the credits roll. See more »

22 Minutes I will never get back
7 September 2014 | by jennyrose313See all my reviews

I will say right up front, I only watched 22 minutes of this atrocity. I gave up when they got to the Alicia Silverstone "character". Seriously?! They couldn't find ONE SINGLE BLONDE ACTRESS to play the part? Instead, they appear to have grabbed some girl off the street and plopped a really, really, really bad blonde wig on her head. Did I mention how BAD the wig was. This movie is just a complete failure. Amanda Fuller sounded more like Tai from Clueless than Brittany Murphy. Frankly, the girl who played Morgan looks more like Brittany. Do yourself and your brain cells a favor and skip this steaming pile of garbage. I would have given it 0 stars if that was an option.
