Release: July 19, 1995

Basically the epitome of the 90's teen flick-and one of the best. Loosely based on Jane Austen's Emma, this film follows the life and adventures of upper middle-class Beverly Hills teen Cher Horowitz and her assorted Bronson Alcott High pals. While Cher is busy playing match maker for everyone else, will she be ever able to snag a Baldwin for herself? A cute and wonderfully written parody, as the adorable Alicia Silverstone ponders everything from the most "stellar" designer fashiions, to the meaning of life, a must-see for any true movie buff. Plus, this is the one that set off all that fabullous teen jargon of the mid 90's.

Cher: "I thought they declared Peace in the Middle East"
Christian: "Do you like Billie Holiday?"
Cher: "I love him."
Heather: "It's just like Hamlet said, "To thine own self be true"."
Cher: "Hamlet didn't say that."
Heather: "I think I remember Hamlet accurately."
Cher: "Well, I remember Mel Gibson accurately, and he didn't say that. That Polonius guy did."
Cher: "I want to do something for humanity."
Josh: "How about sterilization?"
Mel: "Where are you?"
Cher: "I'm just having a snack at my girlfriend's."
Mel: "Where, in Kuwait?"
Cher: "Is that in the valley"
Murray: "Okay, but, street slang is an increasingly valid form of expression. Most of the feminine pronouns do have mocking, but not necessarily in misogynistic undertones."
Cher: "As if."
Amber: "Ms. Stoeger, my plastic surgeon doesn't want me doing any activity where balls fly at my nose."
Dionne: "Well, there goes your social life."
Christian: "Ever notice how wine makes people feel, like, sexy?"
Cher: "You're such a brownnoser."
Josh: "You're such a superficial space cadet."
Cher : "Hey Granola Breath, you got somethin' on your chin."
Josh: "I'm growing a goatee."
Cher: "Oh, that's nice. You don't want to be the last one at the coffee house without chin pubes."
Cher: "Old people can be so sweet."
Dionne: "Cher's saving herself for Luke Perry"
Tai: "No shit, you guys got coke here?!"
Cher: "Well yeah, this is America"
Tai: "Why am I even listening to you to begin with? You're a virgin that can't drive!"
Cher: "I am rescuing her from teenage hell. Do you know the wounds of adolescence can take years to heal?"
Paul: "Yeah, and you've never had a mother and your acting out on that poor girl as if she was you Barbie doll."
Dionne: "What'd you care what he thinks, Murray? I'm the one who has to look at you. That was a big mistake. What am I going to do with you know? And right before the year book pictures? What am I gonna tell my grandchildren?"
Cher: "Oh, no. You don't understand this is an Alaia."
Robber: "An a-what-a?"
Cher: "It's like a totally important designer."
Robber: "And I will totally shoot you in the head. Get down!"
Cher: "You know how picky I am about my shoes, and they only go on my feet."
Dion: "(Referring to Tai) She is toe-up, our stock would plummet."
