(in honor of the 20th Anniversary of this seminal classic.)
Oliver Queen is rich, popular, unbelievably gorgeous, and boy does he
know it. With a flash of a perfected grin, he can charm his way into getting
anything he wants (or anyone, he wants). He rules Starling Prep alongside his
best friend, and partner-in-crime, Tommy Merlyn (both sons of ruthless billionaire
When new student Roy Harper transfers in, Oliver and Tommy decide to make
him their newest pet project. Roy is reluctant, but eventually warms to the
idea of actually having some friends. Oliver and Tommy go about teaching him
how to dress to impress, how to pick up girls, and how to survive high school.
As Oliver goes about setting up Roy with a girl that meets their
standards, he begins to realize that something is missing in his own life.
Tommy has his long-time girlfriend, Laurel, and Roy is totally coming in to his
own. But what’s a guy who has literally everything, missing? He’s got a string
of hot one-night stands, all the money in the world, and looks to kill.
To his impossible to please father, however, Oliver pretty much pales
in comparison to his know-it-all collegiate ex-stepsister, Felicity, who
happens to be younger than him, and still two grades ahead.
In walks Helena Bertinelli, and Oliver becomes infatuated. She’s
perfect. Nothing like the vapid girls he’s been going to school with his whole
life. She’s sophisticated, smart, and gorgeous. So Oliver tries to pursue her,
using every trick in his playbook. But there’s still something missing.
Through some serious soul searching (and some talks with Felicity) he
discovers…he’s kind of an ass. He’s completely obsessed with the superficial.
But who cares? He never did before.
Yet, now he feels sorry that he failed to see that Roy isn’t in love
with the girl he deemed appropriate for him. In fact, he’s kind of in love with
his sister, Thea. He also neglected to realize that the object of his affection
is a great girl, sure, but she’s still wildly in love with her ex.
Then there’s Felicity, who challenges him, and makes him laugh, and
makes him want to be a better person, and he can totally just see himself
kissing that stupidly adorable self-righteous smile right off her face. What? When
did that happen?
So, life is confusing, and so is high school. One thing Oliver knows
about all of it? He’s Clueless.
