"As if!" Filmmaker Amy Heckerling is two for two when it comes to decade-defining high-school comedies: first 1982's FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH, then 1995's CLUELESS, where she transfers Jane Austen's "Emma" to a Beverly Hills high school, with fresh and funny results. BFFs Cher (Alicia Silverstone) and Dionne (Stacey Dash) are A-listers at Beverly Hills' Bronson Alcott High School — rich, popular and both named after "great singers of the past that now do infomercials." Cher has a knack for giving helpful advice to others, typically about fashion choices or dating etiquette, but when it comes to her own happiness, she may be a little bit…clueless. With Paul Rudd, Dan Hedaya, Wallace Shawn, Brittany Murphy, Donald Faison, Breckin Meyer and Jeremy Sisto. DIR/SCR Amy Heckerling; PROD Scott Rudin, Robert Lawrence. U.S., 1995, color, 97 min. RATED PG-13
