The movie is 90 minutes of almost never funny,and entertaining stuff.

The overall corny cliché feel to movie may lead some to take the film less seriously than it should be, but it succeeds in entertaining without the swearing or nudity, and in this genre thats worth applauding.

However the movie is also enjoyable for a wider age group, due to the humour built on top of the book's storylines.

While it is true that both stories had very similar plot points, uneventful structure, and settings, the main characters, themselves, were fundamentally different in a few ways, as this essay has shown, and therefore shows that that is really all that they had in common.

Kind of funny but also kind of boring.

Overall, a fun, engaging and well acted film, that I would definitely watch again.

It offers a satirical view of the rich Beverly Hills teenagers, which was in its time, fresh and exciting.

I think the whole family can enjoy this movie and I was extremely surprised with how much I enjoyed it.

The classic mix of modern late-C20 upper class American life acting the classic literature of Jane Austen's Emma make an intriguing aimiability.

It is as if he is trying to be boring.

It's consumately likable, funny, sweet and sharp- the script is a killer, and the acting is fun and enjoyable.

The last time I saw it was 10 years ago and today I enjoyed it just as much.

Alicia was very boring and the only twists it had was what guy Tai would settle with.

Enjoyable .

A clever coming of age comedy that, while some of its moments haven't aged well, others provide feminist and empowering messages.

Funny and very entertaining movie from the director of "Look Who's Talking (Too).

I think this film was a great way to combine a coming of age film with a comedy instead of just a regular drama.

A young teenage girl coming of age in of all places, Beverly Hills.

It's an enjoyable journey into the life and mind of `typical' teen girl, with lots of money to spend and a to-die-for wardrobe, who sets out to make good deeds and find a mate for everyone besides herself.

I found the film extremely entertaining, being well-written and well acted.

The love stories were unpredictable.

It's is highly quotable and highly entertaining.

Boring movie with no real action .

It's a highly entertaining satire and it's a nuanced teen comedy with a subtle social comment.

Also there is a really great soundtrack to the film, which is always enjoyable.

Fortunately, that was not the case at all, it was actually quite enjoyable and heartwarming with very well written characters, a surprising Brittany Murphy and an Alicia Silverstone as her peak.

Enjoyable, but nothing happens.

It is a terrific film - funny, bright, fast-moving, full of little gems of humour which come zinging back and make you chuckle to yourself a few days later!

+ Funny+ Great script+ Great characters+ Good dramaA bit slow in the middleScore: 8

Silverstone is backed up by a truly talented support cast, including the always engaging Breckin Meyer and Stacey Dash, who's Dionne always perfectly complements Silverstone's Cher.

The plot (inspired in part by Jane Austen's Emma) involves a very upper-middle class girl named Cher Horowitz played by Alicia Silverstone in her breakthrough (Jewish with a touch of Cher nameness) who wants to find the right kind of man, but is left with a bunch of slobs (duh), wants to do anything she can to get good grades, and try to keep an empty head while trying to drive.

Some of the characters are completely pointless and the acting is not great.

Or, string of random events (if you can call them that) stuck together into an hour and a half composition of boredom.

Beyond this, Cher looks for romance and finds it in an unexpected person.

I've seen this a good few times now and I still find it enjoyable.

Much like Mean Girls that would follow nine years later, Clueless has a lot more beneath its pastel coloured surface than merely High School coming of age froth.

The first half hour is the best part, and it is really enjoyable.

The movie was a bit predictable but still very enjoyable.

Stick around for stellar outfits, mediocre acting, pointless storyline, and a flawless leading lady.

I've seen this teen movie countless times, and it's still enjoyable to watch.

The situations provide lots of laughs and the film is packed with snappy, eminently quotable dialogue.

(/SPOILERS) Totally unexpected.

It actually has some good writing to it, even though the movie in essence is still being a formulaic one.

When the movie first came out, I was dragged kicking and screaming by a friend into the theatre to see it.

That's all, there's no message except to being a better person.

Dash is utterly stunning and both Walker and Murphy are competent.

His angry, random, and hilarious nature was well done, and quite entertaining.

This film is a flawless Gem with an amazing, enjoyable, fun plot & amazing characters, a witty sharp script that makes this one of the best teen movies of all time!

Lame and contrived.

If you haven't had a chance to see this movie I would say to check it out, it is worth watching at least once.

Smart and enjoyable updating of Jane Austin's Emma.

The plot is pointless and the scene where Cher gets mugged is completely unrealistic; or maybe that's the point?

On the plus side Silverstone and the gorgeous Dash (my God she is stunning) have amazing chemistry and Dan Hedaya is simply superb as Silverstone's no nonsense lawyer Dad.

The other characters are very entertaining and tend to end up looking a lot deeper than what a viewer might think of them when they are first introduced.

All in all, "Clueless" is an engaging and genuinely hilarious film, which, with "Reality Bites" and "Empire Records" could well become earmarked as a symbol of its decade.

Nor would Amy Heckerling, who gave me and millions plenty enough to be sick and bored about in the "Look Who's Talking" movies.

" This is an endlessly entertaining film filled with great laughs that introduces an entire new facet of "teenspeak" which I won't spoil by getting into here.

I went into the theatre, expecting another boring, meladramatic teenage flic, with no real story or acting involved.

For what it is, what what it sets out to do, and inspired by Jane Austen's "Emma", it is a really good and entertaining movie.

I could go on for so much longer about it's many travesties against the film community but I'm bored of thinking about it.

Definitely worth watching!

It depicts the "Beverly Hills airhead" reputation perfectly (with a little exaggeration) to complete a funny, and entertaining story.

All in all, "Cluless" is an enjoyable fare, though a bit silly at times.

Both were named for great singers of the past who now do infomercials, and they share an intense interest in boys, shopping and clothes.

All together they successfully manage to present one of the strongest side of this movie - a rich gallery of various and very exciting characters.

Paul Rudd is as lifeless as ever and the story meanders to a highly predictable conclusion without anything remarkable happening.

Its funny, stylish, cute, and entertaining.

I recommend this to a anyone who is bored and doesn't know what to watch.

Cher is meant to be bubbly and charming, but she comes across as unbearable and jarringly self-centered.

I hadn't seen this movie in a few years, but I can for sure it's just as enjoyable and relevant now.

One of those films that's infinitely more enjoyable than it should be.

I just watched it again and I still really enjoyed it, almost as much as I did when it first came out (when I watched it oh probably like ten or twelve times, I used to love this movie when it first came out on video, never saw it when it was released in theaters though).

The characters are stupid, contrived, silly, and downright unlikeable.

It turned out to be quite entertaining.

Sure this movie was kind of funny but it was also kind of boring.

Very fun and entertaining movie and I can see that it was very inspirational for Mean Girls.

When I first saw it in the theater, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it.

All in all, a waste of time.

This movie is fun, easygoing and absolutely worth watching it!

Slow Times .

They all seemed to develop a boring one dimensional character for the full movie (I say full, with so many random plot lines, most characters probably got 2 minutes collectively on screen.

Slow Times At 1990's High .

My girlfriend at the time dragged me to see it.

CLUELESS is a breezy and entertaining teen comedy that follows a group of rich, spoiled California teenagers through their version of teen angst (we should all have had teen years this difficult).

It was so odd seeing Brittany Murphy as it is only seven years since her passing and she just looked so stunning in the movie.

Fun to watch and Disney bore you.

It features downright stupid performances and writing featuring a story that is, even with its "clever" spin on it, cliché and downright 90's.

Back in the mid to upper 1990s, I first saw Clueless and as much as I laughed hard and thoroughly enjoyed it, I knew right then, as fresh as it was, it was going to be a dated movie.

I remembered it as being entertaining.

This movie is a great coming of age film about a girl finally realizing that there are more things to life than shopping.

An original and enjoyable enough movie within its genre!

Exciting Film.

The pretentious highly classy and fashion orientated central person outlines the foundations of her existence in a few brief scenes.

I can see how some people would call this an irrelevant and pointless movie to watch, though fact for me simply remains that this movie is a good watch and therefore alone is worth checking out already.

The air of vapidity about her and the slowness of her drawl is so right for the Beverly Hills princess with just enough self-awareness to redeem her from totally fulfilling the airhead stereotype.

Entertaining teen parody is ode to penetrating, clever use of American language .

It is a movie worth watching more then once...

It's so boring I've never made it through the whole thing.

But if you look past the acting the movie is actually enjoyable.

A surprisingly enjoyable and highly funny movie that has rich L.

While this film did have some enjoyable moments, that isn't enough to warrant it all the great reviews it has gotten.

This will always remain a compelling move about teens up to the present moment especially with the way it provides a social insight on teen-agers.

Other movies on the power of pop culture, especially in the high school level, like Never Been Kissed at most end up feeling cute and at worst are, frankly, unbearable.
