This movie was all the rage when it was released! I was only seven when it came out, much too young to see a PG-13 movie. However, we definitely talked about it at school.
I didn’t realize it was a loose re-telling of Emma until years later. I love how the director, Amy Heckerling, studied real Beverly Hills high school students to learn how they talked and their mannerisms, among other things.
And, Paul Rudd – You’ve never aged! Holy cow!
I didn’t care for Alicia Silverstone’s character, but now that I’ve seen it several times, I think the producers did a good job of capturing the attitudes and lifestyles of wealthy teenagers. I wanted all the clothes!!
I enjoyed the relationships in this movie. Typical high school love, but also sweet.
Come back tomorrow for a new movie!
Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
