Episode 22 – Clueless


 This week, we transition from Clue to Clueless.  It’s for our own amusement.  😉

Clueless was a popular film.  Released in 1995, it’s full of style, great clapback insults, and Dan Hedaya!  We ask questions about about the Josh-Cher age difference and how it goes largely ignored.  Does this translate to a high letter grade?
