Richmond Hill's rating of the film Clueless - Was sonst!

Bubblegum with grit. A genuinely sweet film that makes no great allusions to anything (apart from the Emma pastiche) and in doing so provides as gently sly a critique on vacuity, conformity and materialism as you're likely to find this side of Douglas Sirk. The gently skewered targets have only intensified in their horrors with the passing years. Jane Austen in Hollywood indeed.
