Shallow, rich, and socially successful Cher (Alicia Silverstone) is at the top of her Beverly Hills high school’s pecking scale. Seeing herself as a matchmaker, Cher first coaxes two teachers into dating each other. Emboldened by her success, she decides to give hopelessly klutzy new student Tai (Brittany Murphy) a makeover. When Tai becomes more popular than she is, Cher realizes that her disapproving ex-stepbrother (Paul Rudd) was right about how misguided she was — and falls for him.

Did you know?
- Alicia Silverstone (Cher) actually did not know how to correctly pronounce “Haitians” in the classroom scene. Director Amy Heckerling told the crew not to correct her because she liked it so much and wanted it to be in the film.
- The part of Mr. Hall was based on real Beverly Hills High debate teacher Herb Hall, a friend of director Amy Heckerling. As a favor, the real Herb Hall was given the part of the school Principal.
- During the film, there are 53 different kinds of tartan/plaid used, seven of which are worn by Cher, and 12 by other major characters.
