Clueless (1995)

Beverly Hills remains an easy target as writer/director Amy Heckerling  
(FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH) takes aim at their high school sect.   
There's really only one joke here-- that, duh, these kids are too  
spoiled to have a single clue between them-- but it's a good joke 
that's both casually and confidently milked for a solid ninety 
minutes. Nothing hilarious, just *very* amusing.  
Alicia Silverstone (THE CRUSH) leads an appealing cast of teens that  
includes Stacey Dash, Brittany Murphy, and Jeremy Sisto.  The adult  
actors could have more to do, though.  The usually tart Wallace Shawn,  
for example, is awfully wishy washy here.  Inconceivable!  Then again,  
where else this summer can you find jokes about SPARACTUS and 2001: A  
SPACE ODESSEY butting heads with Beavis and Ren & Stimpy??   
Grade: B-
