No. 24: Clueless
She found her thrills in Beverly Hills
1995, dir. Amy Heckerling. Cher Horowitz is a JAP. She has a computer that helps her coordinate her outfits each morning, goes to school fully made-up, and drives around with her high-school friends in an open-top Jeep, despite the fact that she does not have a valid driver’s license. It could be Long Island, but we know it’s Beverly Hills, mainly because Cher takes her restorative shopping breaks on Rodeo Drive. And in the end, she falls in love with the smart college boy and trades her social climbing for do-gooding—though, inevitably, with a bit of shadchan meddling on the side.
