Clueless Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

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 ([[Performer~P65707~Alicia Silverstone~aliciasilverstone]]) and Dionne ([[Performer~P17088~Stacey Dash~staceydash]]), 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 ([[Performer~P31477~Dan Hedaya~danhedaya]]) and hunky, sensitive stepbrother ([[Performer~P225541~Paul Rudd~paulrudd]]), 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 ([[Performer~P200519~Brittany Murphy~brittanymurphy]]), 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. ~ Don Kaye, Rovi
