“As if!" - Clueless 20 years later
It’s hard to believe that Clueless is now 20 years old. The 1995 comedy about Cher Horowitz, a shallow but over-all nice girl who seems to have it all; beauty, wealth and popularity, follows Cher’s quest to be a better person; by doing “good deeds” such as helping uncool schoolmate Tai become pretty and popular. This Cult classic spawned a TV show and a series of books.
Checkout what the all grown up cast of “Clueless” have been up to.
