“This satiric portrait of California rich kids has plenty of charm and wit, and a winning central performance from Silverstone. Cher, 15, is a designer mall rat with a world view several sizes narrower than her vanity mirror, but a heart as big as her dad’s bank account. During a typically unexacting term at Beverly Hills High, Cher adopts newcomer Tai (Murphy) and teachers her how to be a ‘Betty’ (a she-babe), falls for a ‘Baldwin’ (a he-babe), and learns that ”tis a far, far better thing, when you do stuff for other people’…¬† Silverstone makes Cher’s insularity appealingly innocent (even in the midst of crisis, she can’t resist checking out the latest fashion lines), and an attempted seduction scene is sweetly hopeless.” – Time Out (London)
