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.~Don Kaye

I bought this because I remember watching it when I was young, long before reading Jane Austen's Emma. Recently, I learned that Clueless was based on the story of Emma, so I decided to buy it again in this collectible steelbook edition.
If you like steelbooks, I would say go for this version, which is very affordable and will look good on your shelf. The Blu-ray copy of the film looks good on screen, and yes, it is very like the story of Emma, while also retaining the charm of 90s life in America. If you grew up in or around the 90s, you will enjoy the nostalgic experience of watching Clueless again (or for the first time)!
The disc itself does not feature disc art; it is a standard Paramount blue-label disc (see photo). However, the package does include a digital copy as advertised!
One of the best comedic films of all time, and to top it all off, it's a fantastic adaptation of a classic novel brought to "modern day". Do yourself a favor and after watching Clueless, track down one of the more faithful renditions of Emma and compare and contrast. It will provide you with a new appreciation for what was done here.
Very happy with my purchase because Best Buy really came through for me at the last minute. Originally I pre-ordered this steelbook through a different retailer, but they kept pushing the estimated delivery date back further and further. Finally, I got fed up with the wait and cancelled my order with them. I quickly hopped on to the BB app and it was available to purchase for around the same price AND I was able to get it that same day with curbside pickup. It was extremely convenient and felt almost too seamless. Anyway, the movie itself is a classic and the steelbook packaging is cute as can be. I would highly recommend this item and would also like to thank Best Buy for a positive shopping experience!
This was one of my favorite movies growing up. I love the cover, its glitters and sparkles. I'm so happy it came with a digital copy of the movie as well. I wished there were more features, but the movie is great. Paul Rudd hasn't aged a bit since his appearance here. The characters are so joyous, the story is so outrageous, I cannot say enough good things about Clueless. Probably one of my first "teen" movies and an iconic one at that. Clueless is definitely up there with Heathers and Mean Girls. This is 90s magic.
Clueless 25 year Anniversary Steelbook not my thing a gift for my wife birthday gave it to her yesterday & she loved it.
I left it in the container it came in she was surprised, ripped it open like a kid on Christmas day. She loved it I saw bits & pieces it had good color and sound was good especially on the a FREEWAY scene that shot in the movie one of the characters accidentally got on the freeway during the time when she was learning how to drive.
Thinking of whether or not to purchase... AS IF !!
Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
This has been an all time favorite since having released in 1995; of course with the blu-ray release, it was a no-brainer, an instant buy. Now, to mark its 25th anniversary, a steelbook edition has been released...the transfer quality and features are the exact same, but new artwork and quite frankly...one heck of a great design is worth the price of update...at $15.00 it's another no brainer! Highly recommended.
Clueless is one of the best coming of age films of all time. It is timeless and one of many people’s introduction to Paul Rudd who looks exactly the same now as he did when this movie was filmed! Alicia Silverstone on the cover in her yellow outfit made this a must buy! Also, gotta love Brittany Murphy!! This steelbook is timeless just like the film!
