A real thing I said out loud the other day: “You know, I think that Paul Rudd is beginning to look slightly older than he looks in Clueless.”
Some bonus Clueless feelings for you:
I really love the usage of General Public’s “Tenderness” at the end of this movie.
I still think one of my favorite lines might be “Dionne and I are best friends because we both know what it’s like to have people be jealous of us.”
Sometimes, if there is someone I am really close to/comfortable around and we are in separate rooms but I want us to be in the same room I will do a really good (not even passable) impression of Cher’s dad and yell, “Cher, get in here!”
I wrote not one but two papers on Clueless while in college, one for a Brit Lit course and one for a linguistics course (and referenced it regularly in papers ACROSS DISCIPLINES).
One of my favorite things about Clueless that helps you date it to a super particular period in popular culture (aside from LITERALLY EVERYTHING ABOUT CLUELESS) is the live appearance by Mighty Mighty Bosstones.
(Oh my god, in tagging this post I realized that I ALREADY HAD a “Clueless Feelings” tag. HOW ABOUT THAT.)

"Zooey Deschanel’s character in The New Girl is probably the clearest example of this right now, as that entire show is based around how quirky and eccentric and, as a result, lovable, Zooey’s character (I think her name is “Eyeface”) is. Except she’s not so much “eccentric” as much as she is “bad at being alive and functioning socially, in the present.” One of her main conflicts in the pilot is that she has a date at a fancy restaurant, but doesn’t know what to wear so she puts on overalls! Classic Eyeface! And one of the male characters on the show goes goofy-eyed and clearly starts falling in love with her instead of, say, yelling, “You’re 27 years old, how do you not know how to dress and function yet? Get your shit together.”"

Oh, I love this paragraph in particular:

Hollywood is still teaching women that “dumb” is “attractive,” they’re just hipsterfying it. I don’t know when it happened (maybe after Clueless?), but sometime after the ’90s, “Quirky Eccentric Weird Chick” became the new Bimbo. She’s just as insultingly one-dimensional as the archetypal Ditsy Blonde Bombshell Valley Girl character that was all over the place a decade ago, except now she wears vintage knee-socks and listens to The Smiths, and that’s supposed to be better, for some reason.

Just wanted to chime in and say LET’S NOT CONNECT CLUELESS TO ZOOEY D.’S BORING CHARACTERS!! Clueless is about friends who take care of each other and learn from their mistakes. The major romantic storylines (Cher/Christian/Josh and Tai/Elton/Travis) are about how first impressions can be mistaken, how representation is complicated. The “Ditsy Blonde Bombshell” existed before Clueless and actually isn’t very applicable to Clueless if you watch the movie and grab onto the basic “lessons.” Cher isn’t great at things like driving or knowing who to set up on dates, but she is definitely not “bad at being alive and functioning socially, in the present.” She’s just 16 and figuring out her shit! And she’s really good at being genuine and caring and growing, which are not Manic Pixie Dream Girl traits. She has substance even though it seems like she doesn’t, which is kind of the take-home message of the movie (and the opposite of what Daniel O’Brien is describing in his article). Don’t get me wrong, I am very much anti-Manic Pixie Dream Girl and her predecessor, the Dumb-ed Down Hollow Dream Girl, I just disagree very much with lumping Clueless into this discussion. If you want to talk about some boring 80s dream girls (lookin at you, John Cusack repetoire) I am down, but not Clueless, ok! Ok I’m gonna stop now even though I have a lot of Clueless feelings!!

Normally I never reblog stuff like this because, seriously, like I care? But I just want to say that I’m so glad you stepped up to defend Cher — everyone in the world already knows that Clueless is my favorite film adaptation of a 19th century novel and I think that Cher is an awesome example of a teenage girl working out her shit. Yes — she has tremendous amounts of class privilege and racial privilege and everything privilege, but the ways in which her privileges have sheltered her from a nuanced comprehension of a lot of global realities def shouldn’t be conflated with her being dumb in the kind of way that the Cracked article is talking about constructs of quirky/dumb girls in rom-coms.

In college I wrote a paper on constructed slang and cultural literacy in Clueless. I miss being able to mix personal and professional interests.
