あれかれ20年 As If!

 


学園コメディー『クルーレス』という映画が20周年だそうです。この映画見たことがないですが、主演のアリシア・シルバーストーンはエアロスミスのMVが印象的でしたね。

Vanity Fairで20周年回顧記事を載せていました。

そこで興味を惹かれたのが、彼女たちの使っていた言葉使い。記事中でまとめてくれています。以下の予告編でも以下が登場しています。

As If, totally buggin', way harsh, whatever (with w hand gesture)

このあたりは有名なようでDaily Beastでも同趣旨の記事がありました。

‘Clueless’ Glossary: Buggin’, Cake Boy, & More ’90s Slang From the Film

Seems like yesterday when ‘Clueless’ defined the clothing, attitude, and language of teenagers in the ’90s. Here, the complete glossary of the film’s most iconic slang.



So, OK, like right now, for example, the Haitians need to come to America. But some people are all "What about the strain
on our resources?" But it's like, when I had this garden party for my father's birthday right?
But people came that like, did not R.S.V.P. so I was like, totally buggin'. I had to haul ass to the kitchen, redistribute the food, squish in extra place settings, but by the end of the day it was like, the more the merrier! And so, if the government could just get to the kitchen, rearrange some things, we could certainly party with the Haitians.

Wow! You guys talk like grown-ups.
Oh, well, this is a really good school.

Mr. Hall was way harsh! He gave me a C minus.
Well, he gave me a C, which drags down my entire average.

Hello. That was a stop sign!
I totally paused!

You try driving in platforms.


Should l write them a note?

Ooo! Get off of me! Uh, AS IF!


Cher's got attitude about high-school boys.
lt's a personal choice every woman has got to make for herself.


Cher's saving herself for Luke Perry.
Cher, you're a virgin?
I’m not a prude. I'm just highly selective. You see how picky I am about my shoes and they only go on my feet.

Nice stems.

What the hell is that?
A dress.
Says who?
Calvin Klein.

What are you doing? You're getting on the freeway!

You go girl!

Are you OK?
I’m fine.

Classic.

Whatever!

Did I miss something, is big hair back?

Amber?
My plastic surgeon doesn't want me doing any activity where balls fly at my nose.
Well, there goes your social life.

いろいろなメディアでこの映画を取り上げていて結構前向きな評価です。

以下の記事ではthe movie Clueless, a reimagined portrayal of Jane Austen's 1816 novel Emmaと先日取り上げたreimagineが使われています。オースティンのEmmaとは想像がつかなかったですが。。。

Why Clueless is Important For Women
It's way existential.

by LAURA COHEN

July 19, 1995 was a very important day for society: It was the official release of the movie Clueless, a reimagined portrayal of Jane Austen's 1816 novel Emma. This film, however, is far more than an eternally quotable comedic love story centered on mega-rich Beverly Hills teenagers—it's a strong and empowering look at women and their friendships with one another.
