22: Deep Thoughts About Clueless

January 30, 2024


This week on Deep Thoughts, Emily re-examines her favorite movie from high school: Clueless. Not only did this film kickstart Emily’s Paul Rudd appreciation, but it also provided her with some lovely examples of teen girl friendship, healthy father/daughter relationship dynamics, and how to apologize. 

But it’s not all sunshine in this adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma. Tracie and I also discuss how the film normalizes disordered relationships with food and exercise while teaching that unwanted male attention (and assault) are the price of being female–as is being shamed whether you are sexually experienced or inexperienced.

Throw on your earbuds and relive the fashion, the music, and the casual homophobia of 1995!
