After oodles of Dracula adaptations, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Twilight,” “True Blood,” “Daywalkers,” and “The Vampire’s Assistant,” I thought I’d let out a blood-curdling scream if I heard about another vampire movie. But amazingly there’s a new entry in the bloodsuckers category that I’m pretty excited about. The flick is called “Vamps,” and it starts filming in April. What’s so buzzworthy about it? It will be directed by Amy Heckerling, the woman behind “Clueless,” which, 15 years later, never fails to crack me up when I catch it on cable. As if (get it?) that weren’t enough, guess who’s starring? None other than Alicia Silverstone, whose comeback we’ve been anxiously awaiting for years. This will be the first time the dynamic duo has teamed up since their 1995 breakout. Keep reading »

“Clueless,” the ’90s chick-flick which never gets old, taught every tween girl the word ‘sporadic.’ Now, it’s on its way to becoming a Broadway musical. At the end of August, a developmental staging will be running for a week. If all goes well, the production could be headed to the Great White Way. Wait, isn’t Alicia Silverstone working on another Broadway project? Please, please tell us that she’ll be reprising the role of Cher! [Variety]

I cannot tell you how many times I’ve seen “Clueless.” I always adored Cher Horowitz’s valley girl awesomeness. And don’t even get me started on her computerized revolving closet. Obviously, I was elated to hear that Alicia Silverstone is back, at least on Broadway. The ’90s It girl is leaving her pink boa and Beverly Hills behind and hitting the stage in New York City, to play an editor’s girlfriend in the play “Time Stands Still.” I am so hoping that this is the beginning of her comeback. Let me count the reasons why. [The Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Simcha was a little bummed that the new Clueless video game doesn’t involve matching outfits, like that way-before-its-time computer program Cher uses in the movie. But you can upload photos of your clothes to sites like Weardrobe to keep track of all your stuff. Personally, I think this seems like a lot of work, but it could be useful when you need help remembering your favorite go-to outfits, like this morning, when I woke up an hour late and couldn’t figure out what to wear. Rather than stand in standing in front of my closet pondering apparel options, I could have visited my virtual closet and picked something that worked in the past. Technology can be so useful.

The triumvirate of teen queen movies: Pretty In Pink, Mean Girls, and Clueless — are all getting remade into Broadway musicals. Sike! Although we’re sure some of the score will be watered down into electronic bleeps, they’re actually turning the dramas into full on games. Paramount Pictures, who owns all the movies, is creating digital downloads and low-cost “casual” ones for consoles like Wii, Playstation, and eventually Nintendo DS. Finally girl gamers will have some video games all to ourselves, without our boyfriends trying to swoop in and beat our high score! Read on for more details… Keep reading »

Seventy-percent of college aged women say they’ve had a man mistake their friendliness for a come on. (We speculate that by the time you hit 30, that could easily be raised to 100%.) What is it with guys? Just because we’re trying not to be a bitch conductor 24/7, doesn’t mean we want them to ride our caboose. But then again the opposite problem is worse — when we’re trying to get it on with a dude and he just thinks we’re being nice. Ugh, so frustrating! Well, in either case, a new study has proven that it’s not your outfit, your make-up, or your personality’s fault. According to the National Institute of Mental Health and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, men have trouble reading non-verbal clues whether they are sexual or just plain polite.
