Clueless

Trivia: Amy Heckerling first met with Alicia Silverstone (Cher) at a restaurant. Silverstone had a drink with a straw in it. Rather than picking up the drink, she would leave it on the table and lower her head down to the straw. According to her, Heckerling found this to be "adorable, or weird, some combination of both." Heckerling wanted Cher to be a "hot chick" who also seemed innocent.

Trivia: When Cher is talking to Dionne over lunch, you see Cher's "rival" walk out of the cafe doors with a boy trying to talk to her. That boy is a young Dax Shepard.

Trivia: Clueless is a direct retelling of Jane Austen's novel, Emma. Just a bit of trivia for Austenites.

Trivia: There are many clues in this film that foreshadow the revealing of Christian's sexuality. but there is one that less blatant than the others. When Christian is shown entering the classroom, Cher has higher hopes for finding a great guy for herself. However, if you look over his shoulder as the camera pans over to him, you can see a headline cut out of a newspaper. It reads "On The Road To Nowhere", depicting Cher later finding out that she is barking up the wrong tree.

Trivia: Alicia Silverstone had no idea had to pronounce the word "Haitians". During her speech on why "all opposed people should be allowed refuge in America", she mispronounced it on camera. Director Amy Heckerling told the crew not to correct her as she found it funny and wanted it to be in the film.

Other mistake: When Josh and Cher are driving home from a party, they show a shot of the car. It's a blue sports car that passes a Hertz car rental sign. When Elton is driving Cher home from the party in the Valley, they show the exact same shot of the blue sports car passing the Hertz car rental sign.

Cher: Daddy's a litigator. Those are the scariest kind of lawyer. Even Lucy, our maid, is terrified of him. And daddy's so good he gets $500 an hour to fight with people. But he fights with me for free because I'm his daughter.

More quotes from Clueless

Question: Cher claims her jeep has dual side airbags. That seems ridiculous for an open top vehicle. Does that model really come with side airbags, or was that supposed to be a 'clueless' comment?

Chosen answer: When she says "dual side", Cher is referring to the driver side and passenger side airbags (which are installed in the dashboard in front of each seat), not airbags on the side of the Jeep (aka in the doors).

The model year of the jeep in Clueless doesn't have even have driver or passenger airbags. The jeep in Clueless is at best a 1995 and Jeep didn't put airbags in until 1997.
