Fathom Events released a statement regarding this event, saying, "Whether you're seeing it for the first or the hundredth time, Clueless remains one of the funniest and most charming movies — while never losing its satirical bite or wonderful view of the world as it existed 25 years ago. 'We couldn't be more delighted to bring it back to the big screen if Cher herself had asked us," reported Daily Mail.
The movie is based on Jane Austen's novel named Emma. The story follows the life of Cher Horowitz who is a rich, beautiful girl who views herself as a matchmaker. In the beginning, she manages to coax two teachers into dating each other. As this happens, she feels a rush of success and excitement and decides to befriend style-less new student Tai Frasier (Brittany Murphy) and give her a makeover.
The official synopsis of the movie reads, "Shallow, rich and socially successful Cher (Alicia Silverstone) is at the top of her Beverly Hills high school's pecking scale. Seeing herself as a matchmaker, Cher first coaxes two teachers into dating each other. Emboldened by her success, she decides to give hopelessly klutzy new student Tai (Brittany Murphy) a makeover. When Tai becomes more popular than she is, Cher realizes that her disapproving ex-stepbrother (Paul Rudd) was right about how misguided she was -- and falls for him."
