Clueless Quote: “I’m not a prude, I’m just highly selective.” – Cher Horowitz
Could the best adaptation of Jane Austen’s “Emma” be the version that explores the lifestyles of over-privileged rich teenagers living in Beverly Hills during the mid-90s? That was the question raised by listener Sarah L when she commissioned the 1995 hit comedy, #Clueless.
Ashley Schlafly joins Rog & Big D to break down the film that defined fashion trends throughout the decade. Ash fawns over Amy Heckerling’s screenplay and the new direction of teen movies while Big D questions whether Cher’s manipulation methods create an unhealthy double standard when it comes to gender roles. All three hosts get lost in the nostalgia of the soundtrack.
So, let’s hop in our Jeep, kiss our ex-stepbrother, and head to the valley for a ragin’ house party…it’s the latest episode of STM.
Plot Summary: “Clueless” Shallow, rich and socially successful Cher (Alicia Silverstone) is at the top of her Beverly Hills high school’s pecking scale. Seeing herself as a matchmaker, Cher first coaxes two teachers into dating each other. Emboldened by her success, she decides to give hopelessly klutzy new student Tai (Brittany Murphy) a makeover. When Tai becomes more popular than she is, Cher realizes that her disapproving ex-stepbrother (Paul Rudd) was right about how misguided she was — and falls for him.
