To the tune of General Public’s “Tenderness,” Cher and Josh share a major, openmouthed kiss, bringing our movie to a happy, romantic ending. I mean, I remember setting up and putting everything out. And they were making husband jokes: Henny Youngman–ish husband jokes. When you look at it, it’s like, wow, there’s the three besties with the three besties, you know what I mean? Elisa Donovan, Amber: Jeremy and I were supposed to be sitting together at the table. So I go, “Okay, okay, we got it.” Because I felt like sometimes it was easier for him when the camera wasn’t on him. Breckin Meyer, Travis: [Playing Suck and Blow] is the only time I think [I’d] come close to kissing Brittany, because we never actually kissed and we’ve played boyfriend-and-girlfriend probably four or five times.
Steven Jordan, production designer: We must have set up that wedding five or six times. The weather would come in, we’d take it all in and dry it all out. And I was like, they already have this rapport with one another and they are a unit. And I think I had a couple of lines, too, and they had to get cut because Jeremy wasn’t there for some reason. Then I start to film what they all think is Breckin’s close-up. Donald Faison: Breckin and I, we pretty much shared a trailer when we were filming the movie and we only had two scenes together. That was the one time we actually interacted throughout the whole movie. Even in Clueless, at the end of the movie, I’m supposed to give her a kiss at the wedding scene.
She has this nightmare that it’s really him [marrying Miss Geist]. Here she is: it’s almost like unveiling her to the world. Then they all fall on the floor, and [Cher] gets up triumphantly.
I guess subconsciously she’s — you know what I mean? that day I got kissed by both guys: Paul and Wally. To me, it was very Paris, with her little fascinator that I made for her on the top of her head, with the flower. The falling just happens because everybody is shoving and pushing.
Where everybody found themselves: they all had the boyfriends, they all were together, really getting along.
The most compatible signs with Libra are generally considered to be Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, and Aquarius.Oasis wasn’t happy about that, because we wanted to go from “Tenderness” right into the Oasis song on the credits. End credits are usually not bad, but they’re a scroll of crew.But this was actually [the names of the] actors and the director and the production heads and it was this kind of shiny thing we had designed. So we ended up not being able to use that Oasis song “Whatever,” which was a bummer. Mona May: [The wedding] was all about the ending and the happy ending. : THE ORAL HISTORY OF CLUELESS AS TOLD BY AMY HECKERLING AND THE CAST AND CREW by Jen Chaney to be published by Touchstone, a Division of Simon & Schuster, Inc. The wedding dates, i.e., the two days during which the sequence was shot: Thursday, January 19, and Friday, January 20, 1995, days forty and forty-one of production. Bill Pope, director of photography: By then, everybody was their characters. Jeremy Sisto, Elton: I do vaguely remember running to set or something weird about that day, so that must have been it.What happens, Cliffs Notes version: Miss Geist and Mr. Cher catches the bouquet thrown by Miss Geist, thereby winning a bet regarding which girlfriend could snag the flowers. I remember looking up and seeing the boys around the table and they were talking amongst themselves, boys about girls. they just sort of cut it out, whatever I was supposed to do. Amy Heckerling, writer-director: I remember Donald was having some trouble saying some of the words in the dialogue.
Donald Faison: When [Paul] says, “I’m totally buggin’ myself,” that was improv. For the guys, what’s really cool is to have that eighties, edgy, hip look. I think Paul Rudd had a 1950s, shawl-collar jacket, and the sharkskin blue for [Christian’s tuxedo]. I ended up suddenly having to leave the set and having to go almost to the emergency room. I went to my doctor that next morning and he’s like, oh, you’ve got what’s called slapped-cheek disease. So DJ, who was my second or third [hairdresser], ended up doing Alicia’s hair for that scene. Twink Caplan: If I was going to get married, even if it was fake, Amy would have been my maid of honor.
