Westerburg High School’s elite clique of popular girls is “The Heathers,” comprised of the powerful Heather Chandler, the green-with-envy Heather Duke, and the cowardly Heather McNamara. Rounding out the foursome is Veronica Sawyer (Winona Ryder), who is so fed up with the Heathers and the entire peer pressure cooker that she starts running with J.D. (Christian Slater), a mysterious – and possibly psychotic – motorcycle-riding newcomer. But what begins as their noble effort to rid Westerburg of its bad apples ends up taking a real toll. And their teen rebellion produces a serious and mounting body count. Shannen Doherty co-stars in this cruelly hilarious dark comedy, which became one of the biggest cult classics of the ‘80s.

Wait, that's Pump Up The Volume. Here it's just him and his dad, totally different.
This movie is a snapshot of the late 80's, early 90's: big hair, shoulder pads, homophobia, clique culture, outsiders, quiet rage boiling over into questionable choices, hippie teachers, football players and cheerleaders being the highest form of high school life... Ok, so some of those things still endure today, for good or for bad.
You know how it is, you're one of the popular kids, even if your name isn't Heather, and you're a jerk to people you shouldn't be to fit in, and a way bigger jerk arrives and OMG, is he hawt. And enticing. And ok, so maybe you do some questionable things, because looooooove. Or lust. It's a fine line in high school, hormones going off the charts with no idea how to control them.
It's dark satire a breath away from reality, beautifully done and not to be taken entirely seriously.

Tells a tale of a high school ruled by a clique, the 'Heathers', where image is everything.
Murder, swears and action.
I'd describe it as a dark movie, and not a typical teen movie, but it really is a good flick and rumbles up a few laughs and provokes a few thoughts, with the running theme of teen suicide.
