Storyline

Heathers, A regular girl, Veronica, tries to survive the social jungle of high school by sticking with the three most popular girls at school who are all called Heather. As she meets a sociopath named JD, her life spirals into a continuous cycle of hate, unintentional murder and indifference, as she exacts revenge on her enemies, also known as her best friends.

 

QUEEN OF HIGH SCHOOL BLACK COMEDIES

Heathers, It’s funny how this movie can be so over-the-top, yet hit right marks of high school portrayal so precisely.

Dan Waters’s dialogue is priceless. “What’s your damage, Heather?” “Corn Nuts!” “I’m worshipped here and I’m only a junior.” “You’re beautiful.” “Grow up, Heather. Bulimia is so ’87!” These are just a few. The movie is almost like an encyclopedia of catch phrases, and so much more.

It’s the little things that make this comedy lethal. Like the oblivious parents who love pate (played outstandingly by Jennifer Rhodes and Bill Cort) and the tennybopper band Big Fun with its one-hit wonder “Teen Suicide (Don’t Do It)” as the movie’s theme song.

The casting is ingenious. Christian Slater has never been better than his role as JD, the charismatic sociopath rebel who steals the heart of Veronica (Winona Ryder, don’t miss Slater light his cigarette from her freshly burned palm!!) who hates being in the “Heathers” clique. Once murder of the leading Heather in red occurs, the school takes it as some sort of fad.

Though the movie uses the serious issue of suicide as a joke, the themes that are very understated makes the movie work. Popularity, authority, the disillusionment the media has on real life, the masks we wear in high school, the strains we go through to fit in. Drama, comedy and violence is all beautifully photographed and staged by director Michael Lehman, who also made, strangely enough, HUDSON HAWK and THE TRUTH ABOUT CATS & DOGS!!! All hail the Queen.
