Alicia Silverstone and Amy Heckerling Have Risen, Again: 'Vamps'

Amy Heckerling may be feeling frustrated or even dismissive of the youthful energy she once sought, but that conflict between staying forever young and trying to act your age lends Vamps a sense of anxiety that is different from most horror comedies.

'Clueless' Remains as Enjoyable Today as It Was When It Was First Released

Over time, Clueless has only gained a sweetness that perfectly goes hand-in-hand with Heckerling’s quick witted and, at times, biting dialogue to elevate the film above a the glut of teen comedies available.

Clueless: Whatever! Edition (1995)

When I first read I just thought, this is funny. This was by the lady who directed Fast Times and apparently they had the girl from the Aerosmith videos in it.

Loser (2000)

All this said, I'm inclined to like Loser, because it wants so badly to do well by its college-age heroes, and there are so many movies that have exactly the opposite intention.

Loser (2000)

With Loser, Heckerling faces the challenge of measuring up to past success in a decade that doesn't even have its own colloquialism. If in no other way but numerically, Loser functions as a reflection of the '00s.
