"Clueless" is the hilarious classic that captures what it was like to be a teen in the 1990s. Alicia Silverstone plays a 15-year-old high school student who thrives on shopping, enjoys the perfect social life, and plays matchmaker to all her friends. (Gary Reber)

Special features include a Clue or False trivia game; seven featurettes: "The Class of '95" (HD 18:31), "Creative Writing" (HD 09:39), "Fashion 101" (HD 10:46), "Language Arts" (HD 08:09), "Suck 'N Blow; A Tutorial" (HD 02:47), "Driver's Ed" (HD 03:49) and "We're History" (HD 08:52); trailers and a Movies Anywhere digital code.

The 1.78:1 1080p AVC picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, upconverted to 2160p with greater resolution and luminance, was photographed spherically on 35 mm film stock and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. Film grain is never objectionable. The picture is bright and seriously colorful throughout. Color fidelity is nicely saturated with strong primaries, especially reds and greens, and a wide gamut exhibiting healthy-looking hues, such as yellows. Fleshtones are perfectly natural. Contrast is excellent with deep nicely textured blacks, revealing shadow delineation, and bright highlights that light up the screen. Resolution is also excellent with facial features exhibiting fine detail such as skin pores, hair, and makeup, especially during closeups. Clothing is finely textured and revealing of threads and seams. As well, object textures are realistic. This is a very sharp and vibrantly colorful picture that is totally satisfying. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is dialogue focused. The music provides an enveloping surround experience. Atmospherics and sound effects are lively, but mostly frontal focused with barely a hint of surround ambience. But dialogue is the real star of this affair. It is perfectly intelligible with excellent spatial delineation and frontal focus. This is a really fun soundtrack that is immensely enjoyable throughout, (Gary Reber)
