However, this is more prominently reflected when Cher does everything in her power to pair her newest friend Tai.
While both Emma and Cher mean well in their matchmaking attempts, neither of them realize the depths of their actions nor their feelings towards Josh/Mr. Knightly - Cher's stepbrother, Josh is found to be utterly repulsive to Cher, as she states at the beginning of the movie that she has no positive feelings towards him in the slightest.
Murray explains to Cher and Dionne that Christian is gay.
Despite the failure of this endeavor, Cher remains on friendly terms with Christian, primarily due to her admiration of his taste in art and fashion.
Cher and Dionne give Tai a makeover, which gives Tai confidence and a sense of style.
Cher also tries to extinguish the attraction between Tai and Travis Birkenstock, an amiable skateboarding slacker, and to steer her towards Elton, a popular and wealthy student.
Josh, Cher's socially conscious ex-stepbrother, visits her during a break from college. She mocks his idealism, while he teases her for being selfish, vain, and superficial, and says that her only direction in life is "toward the mall".
Cher Horowitz lives in a Beverly Hills mansion with her father Mel, a 0-an-hour litigator; her mother died from an accident during a routine liposuction procedure when Cher was a baby. Dionne has a long-term relationship with popular student Murray; Cher claims that this is a pointless endeavor for Dionne.
She begins making awkward but sincere efforts to live a more purposeful life, including captaining the school's Pismo Beach disaster relief effort. Producers sat in on classes at Beverly Hills High School to get a feel for the student culture.
Cher and Josh eventually admit their feelings for one another, culminating in a tender kiss. Hall and Miss Geist wed; Cher's friendships with Tai and Dionne are solidified; Tai and Travis are in love; and Cher catches the wedding bouquet, helping Josh win a 0 bet. Herb Hall, the real drama teacher at Beverly Hills High School, had a short scene as the principal in the film.
The film also developed a strong cult following after its release. Review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes gives it a score of 79% based on reviews from 63 critics and judged it "Certified Fresh" with an average rating of 6.89/10.
The site's critical consensus reads: "A funny and clever reshaping of Emma, Clueless offers a soft satire that pokes as much fun at teen films as it does at the Beverly Hills glitterati." Peter Travers of Rolling Stone gave the film four stars, contrasting it to the more adult-oriented film about teenagers released around the same time, Kids, stating, "The materialism in Clueless is almost as scary as the hopelessness in Kids." The movie "Clueless" is a loose adaptation of Jane Austen's Emma.
