Here is a high school teen comedy that is actually quite entertaining. Based off Jane Austen’s Emma, the story gets a 90s face lift. Cher is the quintessential ditsy Beverly Hills girl. She is popular, beautiful, and she knows how to dress. However, perhaps most importantly of all we learn over the course of the film that she has a heart.
Initially she loves to play the matchmaker and she takes on pet projects while trying to find a relationship of her own. In end she finds her true love sitting right in front of her all the time.
The film is propelled by a memorable characterization by Alicia Silverstone who is balanced out nicely by a young Paul Rudd. Cher’s voice overs throughout the entire film work swimmingly and there is a bit of a fairy tale ending. Not to mention some sagely advice and hip jargon.
Now I know never to go for a Monet. AS IF! I’m not that clueless.
