5.0 out of 5 stars a Special Edition that this movie deserves!, September 8, 2005
By 
This review is from: Clueless (Whatever! Edition) (DVD)
This new special edition is a definite improvement over the previous incarnation that had no real extras to speak of and so for fans of this movie it is definitely worth the double-dip. Watching these new extras is like revisiting the cast ten years later to see what they've been up to. They are done in the style of and maintain the same tone of the movie which is a nice touch.

"The Class of `95" examines how the film was cast. Heckerling talks about how she picked the actors. The main cast members, except for Silverstone and Jeremy Sisto, are all back to talk about how their involvement.

"Creative Writing" takes a look at the film's origins. The studio originally wanted Heckerling to write a TV show about an in-crowd group of teens but they didn't get it so she changed it into a movie.

"Fashion 101" examines the memorable costumes from the movie. What Cher and her friends wore reflected the personality of each character and ended up influencing what kids subsequently wore.

"Language Arts" is a crash course on the film's colourful slang. Heckerling had collected books and lists of slang over the years and incorporated it into the movie so that each character had their own way of speaking and favourite sayings that are now quoted endlessly by its fans.

"Suck `n Blow: A Tutorial" explains the party game that takes place in the film in an amusing featurette done during the production.

The challenge of shooting Dionne's driving lesson on the Los Angeles freeway is explored in "Driver's Ed." It was a logistical nightmare with all kinds of vehicles coming at the actors so that their scared reactions were genuine!

"We're History" features the cast and crew talking about what they think about the film ten years later. Not surprisingly, they are all proud of its legacy and how well it's aged.

Finally, there is a teaser and theatrical trailer.

THANK YOU for taking the time to fully break down what the special features are on this edition of the DVD. I cannot tell you how frustrating it can be trying to track down that information when trying to decide between the different editions available. Sometimes the "Special *insert cute movie reference here* Edition" actually ends up being just a stripped down version of something already available, and that's just miserable to find out only after you've received the movie. I really wish Amazon would do a better job at providing those details, if only for the sake of comparison, but until then I'm eternally grateful for reviewers such as yourself who take the time to list them. Well done! :)

Thanks! I know what you mean. That frustrates me too and I like it when a reviewer takes the time to break down what exactly is on a specific edition so that you can decide which one to get.
