Meet Cher (Alicia Silverstone). Shopping, shopping, shopping and personal makeovers are her four prime pastimes as she glides above her high-school pecking order like a Gucci hovercraft. Of course, there has to be more to life than labels, price tags and aerobics videos, and Cher is about to find out the hard way
in this immensely likeable film from Fast Times at
Ridgemont High creator Amy Heckerling. Supposedly based on the classic Jane Austen novel Emma, but very much one-of-a-kind in the teen comedy stakes.
Modern classic: Alicia Silverstone learns some life lessons in Clueless.
