"There’s nothing more iconic and quintessential comedy like a cult classic that Clueless is. From its quotable lines to its history-making fashion. While some of the dialogue is a test product of its time, it still holds up today!”

Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story

"Of all the music biopics, this is one of the best. Some of the best cameos including Jack White as Elvis Presley. If you haven’t seen this movie it's one of the most quotable comedies ever made, “wrong kid died” “let’s duet” “and You never paid for drugs, not once”. Ten out of ten stars. So proud of this movie, it's doing a great job.”
