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.

Written by
When Veronica and JD are waking up in the school parking lot, Veronica holds her left arm carefully. When she takes the lighter and puts it on the palm of her left hand, it is obvious that this is not a real hand. See more »
If you think I'm doing another suicide note you're wrong!
You don't get it do you? Society nods its head at any horror the American teenager can think upon itself. Nobody is going to care about exact handwriting.

When this film came out, I didn't see it in the theater. I caught it in the video store. I walked into the video store and the funeral for the Football player was running. I stopped, watched, and laughed my head off. I immediately rented "Heathers" and fell in love with it.
"Heathers" is the realization of what almost every kid in high school was exposed to at one time or another. You were either a "Heather" or a "Veronica" or the spooky/mysterious new kid, or the jock, or the undesirable, or the cheerleader, or the kid who wanted "in" as a "Heather" or..or..or. The only thing is that "Heathers" goes on to show you what happens "if"...If you could get away with some of the things you were thinking of at the time!
The actions of the parents and teachers are to die for. When you're young you think you can figure out just about anything, or figure out what the adults are thinking and try to get around it. "Heathers" gets into it all, very darkly, and carries it off well. Although I thought the ending was a bit too...tidy.
If you're in High School, (over 17 of course) or in College looking back at High School, you'll identify with this film. If you're an adult, this may remind you of those days, but this is a nicely done dark humored film. Go rent it today, see it uncut.
