Yes, “Clueless” is twenty years old, and it’s still one of the best teen comedies ever made! There’s much to remember from this cool comedy, but Alicia Silverstone’s breakout performance tops the list, and Dan Hedaya was also excellent as Cher’s father.
Here’s one of our favorite lines from the movie, courtesy of Mr. Hedaya, when he explains to Cher’s date (who he didn’t realise was gay), “If anything happens to my daughter, I have a 45 and shovel; I doubt anyone will miss you!” Classic . . .
When it comes to matters of the heart, people in show business have a reputation of being the most prominent serial daters. The media and tabloids are constantly looking at celebrity’s love lives as a source of entertainment, never being short in materials to write about. And whist most of us are happy to enjoy a more traditional approach to coupling by sticking to the one partner, others are happy to live a similar lifestyle to their favourite Hollywood personalities, opting instead to date in a more casual fashion with multiple partners.
The life of celebrities is one that we often envy and try to emulate. From the items of clothing we buy to the cars we drive, going through the products we eat and yes, the way we approach dating. We like to behave like famous people because we can see they are enjoying themselves, and we also like having a good time. After all, some famous people are just too busy to take on the responsibility of being in a stable relationship because they are simply too hectic working and travelling around the world. Whist most ordinary jobs will offer more stability, a lot of us also work too hard to take on a long term relationship. After all, long term relationships do take a lot of effort and some of us might decide that having a family is too much to commit to.
Rihanna’s transition to film is continuing, with the announcement that Friday Night Lights director Peter Berg is planning to make a documentary about the pop star. Her new single from the upcoming album R8 has also been released, featuring the Bajan pop star next to Paul McCartney and Kanye West. Finally, a third victory for Rihanna — an appeals court has ruled that Topshop can’t sell T-shirts featuring the signer without her permission.
‘Friday Night Lights’ Director Making Rihanna Documentary
Citing the Bob Dylan movie Don’t Look Back as creative inspiration, Peter Berg has signed on to make a documentary about Rihanna. It follows on the heels of her voicing the main role in the DreamWorks film “Home” and her acting role in 2012’s Battleship.
According to Deadline, the film will be an “unfiltered look” at Rihanna’s life and the story of her ascent to becoming a global icon. Berg, who both directed the Friday Night Lights film and also worked on the TV series, has cited the 1967 DA Pennebaker documentary on Bob Dylan, “Don’t Look Back,” as a major influence on the new project. Berg has said that he is hoping it will be more of a character study, versus a music film.
Fewer people are watching The Oscars, as this was the worst TV ratings performance since 2009. Still, Neil Patrick Harris was excellent as the host and his opening number had a planned interruption from Jack Black who went on a singing rant of everything that’s wrong with the movie business – too many superheroes and mindless sequels to start.
Still, it was cool to see an original film like “Birdman” take top honors.
