Quirky black comedy high school flick with Christian Slater and Winona Ryder

RELEASED IN 1989 and directed by Michael Lehmann, "Heathers" stars Winona Ryder as Veronica, a high school student in Ohio who has sold herself out to join the popular clique of three girls, all coincidently named Heather (Kim Walker, Lisanne Falk & Shannen Doherty). The more she spends time with them, however, the more she discovers she can't stand them. Enter mysterious new kid, JD (Christian Slater), who has a macabre solution to Veronica's conundrum.

This is an oddball teen movie that tries to be edgy and amusing with its black humor and overt cussing. Future movies were influenced by it, like "Jawbreaker" (1999) and maybe even "Mean Girls" (2004). The commentary on peer pressure, teen suicide and the maiming destructiveness of cliques is potent. Teens can be misled by the "popular" students, yes, but they can also be misled by the outcasts.

Slater stands out as a sorta dark Fonz of the late 80s, easily one of his best roles ever. Ryder is surprisingly good as the protagonist. I say "surprisingly" because I was never big on her (although I didn't dislike her either). The first act is quite good, but the story gets humdrum in the middle; thankfully, the last 20 minutes perk up. The late 80's ambiance is to die for.

I'm not going to give it away, but the original ending was way more morbid. They had an alternative ending that they didn't go with either. Apparently the studio pressured the writer/director to go with the theatrical ending, which I approve. It's a story of redemption. Being misled by corrupt people for a season doesn't define a person forever.

THE MOVIE RUNS 1 hours & 43 minutes and was shot in Los Angeles (the high school) and surrounding area (Santa Monica, Tujunga and Pasadena). WRITER: Daniel Waters.

GRADE: B-/C+

Veronica teams up with a trenchcoat wearing psychopath to kill 3 girls of her former clique

This is one of the most overrated movies i have ever seen. While I love dark humor, this felt confused with its tone. I only laughed once and that was it. The script wants us to laugh and take it seriously at the same time which can be done when handled right. But this movie fails because not only do the jokes miss, but the drama and social commentary are hamfisted and lack any depth. The movie also looks like it was smeared with vasline in certian parts. The only acters who gave any standout performances were the two leads ( Winona Ryder and Christian Slater). Both are good acters who turn in good performances. Now i'm not giving this movie a bad rating to be different or edgy. I was just severly disappointed in this movie. I was sold on the concept , but the execution was very much Subpar.

Loved it very much, despite my initial doubts

At first, I was worrying that this film would be another cliche teen high school movie. But as the film progresses, I liked how the dark humor and violence was employed to build up the tension in the plotline. In addition, Winona Ryder looked gorgeous as Veronica Sawyer.

My only takeaway for this film is the title. In my opinion, I don't really see why this film would be named "Heathers" when a majority of the story focuses on Veronica and her relationship with JD.
