i realised today that one of my favourite movies from my teen years is 15 this year! 15! man, i feel old. the movie is clueless. i saw it in the movie theater in 1995 when i was 14 and loved it. my friends and i would quote it all the time and let’s face it, we all wanted to be cher. it starred the beautiful alicia silverstone as cher, the late brittany murphy as tai, the adorable paul rudd as josh and breckin myer, who i had a bit of a weird crush on, as travis birkenstock (great name!). it’s one of those typical 90s movies where nothing much happens but it’s funny and very much a sign of the times. i watched it recently and still thought it was great. some of my favourite quotes…
“cher’s saving herself for luke perry.”
“do you prefer fashion victim or ensembly challenged?”
“searching for a boy in high school is as useless as searching for meaning in a pauly shore movie.”
and many more…
if you’ve never seen clueless, where the hell have you been? go watch it now. if you have seen it, chances are you share my feelings about how good this movie was and still is. happy 15th birthday clueless.
