Paramount announced that they’re going to reboot the classic comedy, which defined the ’90s and immortalized that decade’s unique and terrible fashion. Director and writer Amy Heckerling’s was adapted from Jane Austen’s 1815 novel Emma and put into 1995, satirizing the wealth of the Beverly Hills set. Cher Horowitz (Alicia Silverstone) was just trying to find love and make a new girl popular. This smart comedy made stars out of some of the cast, including Silverstone, Paul Rudd, Stacey Dash, and the late Brittany Murphy.
Girls Trip writer Tracy Oliver is set to produce this remake and Marquita Robinson, a story editor, and writer on the Netflix women’s wrestling comedy GLOW is going to write the script. Nothing else is known about the remake yet and if they’re going to attempt to keep it in the ’90s. Silverstone’s disgusted and sassy “As if!” is going to be tough to top, so they might need to go in search of a new catchphrase. Generation Z might not get some of the lingo that Cher and her friends are putting down.
Cher was super picky about her shoes and those only went on her feet, so imagine how particular she would be if she had anything to say about the updated language of this reboot. We suggest that if they bring it into 2018 that they update Cher’s catchphrase to the modern equivalent: “I can’t even!”
Regardless of how they choose to update the beloved teen comedy, a line from Cher’s debate about letting Haitian refugees into America will still be relevant, “And in conclusion may I please remind you it does not say R.S.V.P. on the Statue of Liberty.”
