When Clueless was released on July 19, 1995, its immediate sleeper success and critical acclaim couldn't foretell the impact the film would have on generations of teens (and adults) for years to come. Alicia Silverstone's Cher Horowitz became a hero to teen girls everywhere. Paul Rudd became the actual nice guy crush of girls and boys alike. And the whole gang became immediate #squadgoals.
Twenty years later, while very much a capsule of its time, Clueless's suprisingly biting foresight into fashion and technology (thanks much in part to Amy Heckerling's razor sharp writing) makes it feel eternally timeless.
