Synopsis

Amy Heckerling's high school comedy classic stars Alicia Silverstone as Cher, a wealthy, well-meaning and wafer-deep Beverly Hills teen who takes a naive new student under her wing. Brittany Murphy is the "clueless" new girl who receives the benefit of Cher's wisdom in this terrifically amusing spin on Jane Austen's Emma. Thanks to a new lexicon of teen-speak and the comic timing of the cast, the satire hits the ear like the the fashions hit the eye. "The columns of my house," says Cher, "date all the way back to 1972." It's a lot smarter than it looks.
