Clueless grossed a whopping $56.6 million and developed a cult following, with Alicia's character's iconic line, "As if," still being used as a form of expression. A host of projects that further shaped Silverstone's career were Batman & Robin, Hideaway, The Babysitter, and the French drama Le Nouveau monde.
Silverstone was propelled to reconsider her career when the actress was inundated with massive hate for Batman & Robin, a box office hit but deemed one of the worst movies. The actress eventually branched her career into producing. She produced Excess Baggage, Braceface, and Love's Labours Lost, in the following years.
