Jane Austen might never have imagined that her 1816 novel Emma could be turned into a fresh and satirical look at ultra-rich teenagers in a Beverly Hills high school. Cher (Alicia Silverstone) and Dionne (Stacey Dash), both named after "great singers of the past that now do infomercials," are pampered upper-class girls who care less about getting good grades than wearing the right clothes and being as popular as possible. But Cher, who lives with her tough yet warm-hearted lawyer dad (Dan Hedaya) and hunky, sensitive stepbrother (Paul Rudd), also has an innate urge to help those less fortunate - like the two introverted teachers she brings together ("negotiating" herself improved grades in the process) and new friend Tai (Brittany Murphy), who starts out a geek and ends up a Cher prodigy. Cher also possesses her own sensitive side, and she is looking for the perfect boyfriend, whom she ends up finding where she least expected.

The atmosphere is always kept bright and the mood is always light, even in its "dark" moments which really dont exist.
Paul Rudd is excellent as the romantic lead, though his comedic talents are not utilized much in this film.
Alicia Silverstone is the perfect ditz for this role, combining an innocent sexuality with an adorable "dumb blonde" persona. Her supporting cast is great too, each being an original personality.
Forget this movie if you want depth and substance, but if you want a few chuckles and a light, fun bit of fluff, buy this, its one of the better ones and you wont be disappointed. There is a reason this has become a sort of cult classic and I think you will come away thinking this film has more heart than you originally thought.
