`CLUELESS' A SURPRISE HIT ON THE CHEAP

Abstract (Document Summary)

In the midst of a summer of mostly desultory films, along came Clueless. The wickedly funny farce about rich teen-age girls in Beverly Hills has emerged as a sleeper hit of the summer.

"I'm blown away, especially by the great reviews," says Amy Heckerling, the film's writer and director. "I just wanted to do something about the teen-age experience; it's such a wonderful and horrible time of life."

In many ways, Clueless revives the teen-age genre that some Hollywood executives assumed had died in the mid-1980s. Although there were a handful of exceptions, studios have failed to generate the kinds of teen-age movies - some of them very good, some of them awful - so popular in the 1970s and '80s. Among the most successful were American Graffiti, Saturday Night Fever, National Lampoon's Animal House, Risky Business and Pretty in Pink.
