In this week’s recon, we cover yet another classic, this time with a teen twist: CLUELESS (directed by Amy Heckerling, starring Alicia Silverstone, Stacey Dash, Brittany Murphy & Paul Rudd, 1995).
The plot, in a nutshell 🥜: Cher is a rich high school student who is learning to cope with adolescence and its problems. She also helps a new student gain popularity and, in the process, discovers her own feelings.
Our discussion of it, in a nutshell 🥜: we examine the movie and debate its most critical topics such as: what to wear to a house party, the trauma of trying to catch the bouquet at a wedding and, most importantly, ARE CHER AND JOSH CROSSING SIBLING LINES? Plus, we ask necessary life questions, including: why do Americans not say the ‘h’ in herbal? What kind of hair dye runs out in one rinse? Which is the superior GPS navigation software? And is Kuwait in the Valley?
