Rollin’ with the Homies: Clueless screening

by Michelle McGlynn

So Autumn is upon us and the weather is being way harsh. But the good people at the Sugar Club have found a way of brightening our moods. Haul ass down to the Sugar Club on Wednesday October 3rd for a screening of Amy Heckerling’s classic 90’s film Clueless.

Clueless Girls

Long before there was Regina George and the Plastics, there was Cher, Dionne and Tai. Two Beverly Hills Bettys and one New Yorker in need of a make-over. Heckerling’s take on Jane Austen’s Emma provided one of the quintessential teen films of the 90’s. The film remains completely quotable in everyday situations, despite some outdated references. Though I maintain that it is still acceptable to save yourself for Luke Perry. I shudder to think how a generation could have turned out were it not for the sage advice provided by Clueless, including gems such as “Sometimes you have to show a little skin. This reminds boys of being naked, and then they think of sex. And anything you can do to draw attention to your mouth is good.” and “Legs crossed towards each other. That is an unequivocal sex invite.” Heckerling’s use of irony and gentle satire made this film an instant classic while the cast made even the most vapid of characters lovable.

So why not take a trip back to when Christian Slater was the Hollywood hottie of the moment, mobiles only made calls, Beverly Hills 90210 was popular, grunge was making it’s way into pop culture and wearing outfits made entirely of plaid was considered fashionable.
