Looking Back at Clueless

Looking Back at Clueless

 

     The movie Clueless is a classic, no arguments. A modern version of Jane Austen’s Emma, it follows a Beverly Hills rich girl, Cher. Cher is shallow and popular, the typical blonde cheerleader type you are familiar with, but. . .she actually isn’t. What sets Cher apart from that stereotypical figure is that she is kinda. . .smart. Sure, throughout the movie Cher has her moments that make you cringe, but most of the movie Cher is a clear-headed, strong-willed, kind and caring teenage girl.  The little things she does that touches my heart include caring for her father’s health, finding love for her teachers (even though this also benefited her), caring so much for her friends, her disgust towards teenage boys, and her volunteer work to help the victims of natural disaster. Cher has a way of saying something that makes sense in a syntax that everyone can clearly understand and identify with. The character is overall cute, smart, fashionable, and funny. This movie’s contribution to pop culture is still prominent today and it is always there to lift up your spirits.
