Publisher's Summary

Will we ever get tired of watching Cher navigate Beverly Hills High School and discover true love in the movie Clueless? As if! Written by Amy Heckerling and starring Alicia Silverstone, Clueless is an enduring comedy classic that remains one of the most streamed movies on Netflix, Amazon, and iTunes even 20 years after its release. In the first book of its kind, Jen Chaney has compiled an oral history of the making of this iconic film using recollections and insights collected from key cast and crew members involved in the making of this endlessly quotable, ahead-of-its-time production. Get a behind-the-scenes look at how Emma influenced Heckerling to write the script, how the stars were cast into each of their roles, and much more. With supplemental critical insights by the author and other notable movie experts about why Clueless continues to impact pop culture, As If! will leave fans new and old totally buggin' as they understand why this beloved film is timeless.

    "Awesome book, awful narrator."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I love Clueless and hearing about the back story and on set goings on was very interesting.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Get a different narrator. She was AWFUL. She inserted completely different inflection and tone into the movie quotations she read, making me think she has never seen the movie. It really took away from the content. Added to that, seemingly deliberate poor pronunciation. Example: Richard "Grecko" (known to most of us as Richard Greico) . I understand she is a comedian and maybe she thought this was a great esoteric joke (which I could appreciate in an stand up routine), but an Audiobook isn't the place the place for it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I love Audible but his book is best in hard copy.


    Any additional comments?

    Get multiple narrators. One for the commentary, one for the female comments and one for the male comments. We don't need an original cast recording, just something to differentiate.
