A fairly descent teen comedy starring Alicia Silverstone (who fits perfectly into this role) as a snobby rich California high school student. She decides to set out and do good for the world by giving her new buddy from Brooklyn with a "fashion emergency" a makeover and finding her a boyfriend. It's entertaining and sometimes funny, but it's too mild for me. Based on Jane Austen's Emma .
