Directed By: Michael Lehmann
IMDB Rating: 7.4/10
So this is another favorite of mine. Heathers is a Black Comedy directed by Michael Lehmann. He also directed Meet the Applegates. I absolutely love this movie. From the cast to the lines, it was just high school perfect and my number one high school movies of all time.
Veronica Sawyer played by Winona Ryder is in the most powerful click in school….. The Heathers. Yep Veronica Sawyer’s click is Heather Chandler (Red) Leader of the Heathers, Heather McNamara (Yellow) and Heather Duke (Green) Played by Shannon Doherty.
“Dear Diary: Heather told me she teaches people “real life.” She said, real life sucks losers dry. You want to fuck with the eagles, you have to learn to fly. I said, so, you teach people how to spread their wings and fly? She said, yes. I said, you’re beautiful.”
As she thought she was done with high school boys she meets… Jason Dean, J.D. for short played by Christian Slater. I don’t know about you but playing this character made him so sexy. I guess I’m just crazy. LOL.
Lines like ” How Very”, Well Fuck me gently with a chainsaw, do i look like mother teresa?”, “Did you have a brain tumor for breakfast?” made this movie a classic. After 25 years people are still using these lines.
After a bad night between Veronica and Heather Chandler (Red Heather), Veronica and JD pay her a visit that ends up deadly. Since Veronica has the ability to write in anyone’s handwriting, she writes a letter as if Heather C. wrote a suicide note. Veronica writes the letter as she and JD come up with what to write in the letter.
In the event of her death and the deaths of both Football members Kurt Kelly and Ram has impacted the school. As it tries to raise awareness it comes a trend.
Kurt and Ram were both shot by Veronica and JD after they spread a nasty rumor about Veronica in School. Since Veronica has the beautiful gift of forging handwriting, she wrote a letter as if she was one of the guys stating they were in a gay relationship and committed suicide because society wouldn’t accept their love.
It ends with Veronica breaking up with JD. JD gets crazy and tries to blow up the school. Veronica stops him and ends up blowing himself.
This movie even inspired Heathers the Musical which Im so invested to see
I absolutely love this movie. Parents it is Rated R but see the movie before you think its acceptable for you child to see.
