Clueless Reunion
As If

In the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, the Clueless cast reunites seventeen years after the film's release. I can hardly believe it's been that long. Clueless is one of my all-time favorites. The fashion.. the quotes.. the music.. I hope my daughter loves it as much as I do when I make her watch it with me one day.

The director of Clueless, Amy Heckerling, also directed Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

She based Clueless on Jane Austen's 1815 novel, Emma.

Heckerling wanted Alicia Silverstone to play Cher after seeing her in an Aerosmith video.
She didn't even have to audition.

Paul Rudd auditioned for the roles of Murray, Christian and Elton before landing the role of Josh.

Clueless was shot in 40 days.

Brittany Murphy admitted she was literally a virgin who couldn't drive when filming the movie.

Alicia Silverstone didn't know how to correctly pronounce "Haitians" in the classroom scene.
The director told the crew not to correct her because she wanted it to be in the film.

Even though Paul Rudd's character was in college, Stacy Dash was actually three years older than him.
Dash said, "I was 27, and I was playing this high school student. I had a son at home who was six years old."

Cher's last name is given as Horowitz, but her report card says Hamilton.

During the game of "Suck and Blow", the cast's lips were heavily coated in ChapStick to make the cards stick.

Cher: Sometimes you have to show a little skin. This reminds boys of being naked, and then they think of sex.

Tai: You guys talk like grown-ups!
Cher: Well, this is a really good school.

Tai: Do you think she's pretty?
Cher: No, she's a full-on Monet.
Tai: What's a monet?
Cher: It's like a painting, see? From far away, it's ok, but up close it's a big old mess.

Murray: Your man Christian is a cake boy!
Cher & Dionne: A what?
Murray: He's a disco-dancing, Oscar Wilde-reading, Streisand ticket-holding friend of Dorothy.
Know what I'm saying?
Cher: Uh uh, no way, not even!
Murray: Yes, even; he's gay!
Dionne: He does like to shop, Cher. And the boy can dress.

Even Silverstone agrees that Clueless has stood the test of time.

She said, "If I was in a hotel room and it came on, I'd want to watch it."

I always forget Paul Rudd was in that. He's adorable.
And Stacy Dash is GORGEOUS!!! Can't believe she's 44.

awwww rest in peace Britt M. She was one of my favorites.

I love how everyone has aged so well...with the exception of the guy who played Christian. DAMN what happened? I love that almost all of them still have successful careers. I was such a huge Clueless fan and I can't wait to watch it one day with my daughter. I wonder if she'll find it cool or dorky?

I love that movie! Yes, hard to believe it has been that long ago that it came out! Dang!

Sad about Brittany Murphy.

Probably one of my most favorite movies of all time. I wish they would have done this sooner - to get Brit in the pictures/line up. I'm still sad that she's gone. I loved her. This movie was what started my HUGE crush on Paul Rudd - thank you Clueless!

Kelly @ turned UP to ELEVEN! said...

I'm also a huge fan of Breckin Meyer... love him. He's so adorable... it's a toss up between him and Seth Green for favorite shorter man. They crack me up.

Christina said...

17 years ago!? I was 16 when it came out. Ugh, I'm old. I quoted this movie today on my blog! And I quote it constantly in real life. It really is timeless. I own it, but still watch it every time I catch it on TV. The soundtrack is one of my favorites. I also can't believe how attractive that cast still is! (RIP Tai).

Natalie said...

I feel so old. We were such babies when this movie came out & I remember thinking they were SO grown & cool.

It's so sad to see the reunion pics without Brittany Murphy.

I LOVE Clueless! One of the best movies ever.

I've seen it so many times that I heard all of those quotes in the characters' voices and they still made me giggle after all these years.
