Did 1995's "Clueless" kill off the early '90s Gen X/slacker movie genre?
Namely movies like Reality Bites, PCU, Clerks, Singles, SFW:
(2) the slacker era this movie represents was pretty short-lived. Just one year later, you had over-achiever Cher Horowitz as the heroine in "Clueless", and the young generation would start developing and producing in the new Internet/cell phone era that would shortly launch. While it was cool to be a slacker in the early 90s, it was fading a few years later, and gone by the end of the decade. The moment quickly passed.
