Put on your knee-highs and your collarless shirt from Fred Segal! July 19 marks the 17th anniversary of "Clueless."
Directed by Amy Heckerling, the film describes Beverly Hills lifestyle ("Is this a Noxzema commercial or what?") through the eyes of Cher (Alicia Silverstone), a, like, totally normal teenage girl.
Cher and her bestie Dionne (Stacey Dash) -- "She's my friend because we both know what it's like for people to be jealous of us" -- then meet Tai, a grungy New York transplant, and decide to take her under their wing, showing her the ropes when it comes to fashion, vocabulary and love. Tai is of course played by the late Brittany Murphy, who died in 2009. The rolling-with-the-homies character went on to become one of the actress' most beloved roles.
In honor of the film's 17th birthday, what better memory to relive than when Cher, Dee and Tai first meet? Below are 24 reasons "Clueless," and this gym scene, are still the best thing ever.
1. Ms. Stoeger.
2. Cher's gold cell phone case.
3. "I doubt I worked off the calories in a stick of Carefree gum."
4. She didn't even hit the ball.
5. Dionne is wearing a bandana and a beeper.
6. Amber's the real winner here: Her outfit makes her look like some kind of revealing trapeze artist; her hair is inexplicable -- a full-on Monet, indeed!
7. "Mrs. Stoeger, my plastic surgeon doesn't want me doing any activity where balls fly at my nose."
8. Wonderful burn ahead.
9. "Well there goes your social life."
10. Mrs. Stoeger rolled her eyes.
11. Oh, god. Brittany Murphy, so adorable!
12. You = :(
13. "She could be a farmer in those clothes."
14. "Would you look at that girl? She is so adorably clueless."
15. Dionne called Tai "toe-up."
16. Then she said their "stock would plummet."
17. "Dee, don't you want to use your popularity for a good cause?"
19. Tai is the sweetest New-York-transplant-90s-puppy-dog, ever.
20. "I could really use some sort of an herbal refreshment."
21. They don't get it! Because they're from Beverly Hills -- a land devoid of drugs or innuendo!
22. "Well, we do lunch in 10 minutes."
23. "No shit. You guys got coke here?"
24. "Yeah. This is America."
The gold standard for comedic trios. This 1986 classic stars Steve Martin, Chevy Chase and Martin Short as silent film actors who portray the fictional Three Amigos. Unfortunately, a woman in danger mistakes them for the real thing and invites them down to Mexico to stop the notorious bandit El Guapo. Things (SPOILER?) work out in the end, but not before the three make complete asses of themselves.
Although the beginning of this movie is less trio and more duo-plus-one, Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Allan (Zach Galifianakis) end up coming together to form a rather dynamic -- and completely random -- team who hope to find their missing best friend. They even manage to get a stolen tiger returned to its rightful owner, Mike Tyson.
'The Big Lebowski'
Pour Donny (Steve Buscemi) may have taken offense to being included on this list. However, before he could voice his complaints, Walter (John Goodman) would have told him to "Shut the f-ck up," while the Dude (Jeff Bridges) would sit there zoned out, daydreaming about bowling. (Clip above NSFW.)
The 1991 comedy starring Billy Crystal, Daniel Stern and Bruno Kirby taught us two things: Under no circumstances should three grown men from the city take a trip to the Southwest to herd cattle, and no matter where a group of best friends travel, they will always find something interesting to talk about.
Some of you may scoff at this 2011 comedy making the list, however, it's hard to argue the chemistry that exists between Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis, who play three friends attempting to murder their overbearing bosses
'Three Men and a Baby'
In real life, three New York City bachelors taking care of a child that unexpectedly shows up on their doorstep sounds like an absolute disaster. However, in a movie, it's actually a <em>fun</em> disaster! (Also, there's nothing more entertaining than watching the mustachioed Tom Selleck struggle to change a baby's diaper.)
In "Airheads," Adam Sandler, Brendan Fraser and Steve Buscemi play wannabe rock stars who break into a radio station to get their record on the air. Then, one thing leads to another and they end up taking everyone inside the building hostage using plastic water guns.
Frank the Tank! Frank the Tank! The second Todd Philips film on our list -- and the aughts favorite frat comedy -- starred Will Ferrell, Luke Wilson and Vince Vaughn as three middle-aged buddies who end up starting a fraternity after one of them moves into a giant house on campus. There's jello wrestling, streaking and, of course, Snoop Dogg. (Clip above NSFW.)
'Ferris Bueller's Day Off'
You may think that this movie was just a one-man show, however, Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) wouldn't have had that awesome day of fun without his sidekick Cameron (Alan Ruck) and his girlfriend Sloane (Mia Sara). See how well they complement each other during this Sausage King of Chicago restaurant scene?
