The film's electronic score was composed and performed by David Newman and a soundtrack CD was subsequently released. The site's critical consensus reads: According to Clare Connors' scathing rebuke, Heathers reveals that conflict as arising within the heart of the American high school: On the other hand, the cultural life of high school operates as the central training ground in the ruthlessly competitive values and viciously hierarchical social structure of American capitalism.
Through a series of homologies, Westerberg High School becomes a metaphor for American life and culture during the Reagan and George Herbert Bush administrations. The conflict between democratic values and the social brutalities of s consumer culture resides not just at the heart of the high school experience, but at the heart of s American life.
Heathers ends with Veronica's establishment, not of a school social structure devoid of hierarchy, but of a kinder, gentler monarchy with the protagonist in charge. In fact, Heathers may be the nastiest, cruelest fun you can have without actually having to study law or gird leather products. If movies were food, Heathers would be a cynic's chocolate binge.

Everybody's life's got static. Is your life perfect? I don't really like my friends. I don't really like your friends either. Maybe it's time for a vacation. The car horn blares again. Music pounds the door. BRAD That exam was so bogus. Did you girls bring your partying slippers? Dear Diary, I want to kill and you have to believe She throws the pen across the room and pulls out another.
You have to believe it's for more than selfish reasons. More than a spoke in my menstrual cycle. You have to believe me. BRAD So, are you a cheerleader? BRAD You're pretty enough to be one. They uncomfortably sip their beers. A deadly pause ensues. BRAD So when you go to college, what kind of subjects do you think you'll study? DAVID doing most of the work. You're just so hot tonight.

When you make the jump from working weekends at Pizza Hut to thirty years at I. Not innocence -- power. Christ, I can't explain it, but I'm allowed an understanding that my parents and these Remington University assholes have chosen to ignore. I understand I must stop Heather. She draws a Vodka bottle from a stockpile of liquor and pours some in her beer cup, slouching down in her chair. She eerily brings her hand closer and closer to the fire until it touches.
With an eek of pain, she tosses the match away into the Vodka cup, setting it afire. Using a glass off one of the sinks, she gargles some water and then spits it at her own reflection.
BRAD How's my little cheerleader? Now I know everyone at your high school isn't so uptight, come on. BRAD Let's do it on the coats. BRAD plops down onto the bed of coats and begins bouncing. Gee Blank, I had a nice I just wanna get laid.
Brad says you're being a real cooze. Can we jam, please? She flings herself down off-screen with some ugly wretching sounds. Killing Heather'd be like offing the Wicked Witch of the West. Or is it East? I sound like a psycho. Tomorrow I'll be kissing her aerobicized ass but tonight let me dream of a world without Heather.
A world where I am free. You were playing Barbies with Betty Finn! I got you into a Remington Party! It's on the hallway carpet. I get paid in puke! I'll tell everyone about tonight.
No one at Westerburg's going to let you play their reindeer games. I saw the croquet set-up in the back. Up for a match? She seems ready to burst out all her anxieties but instead A pair of girls shoes and a pair of guys shoes rest together by the first wicket. Goddamn, no wonder you looked so mangled when I came through the window. Feminine socks and masculine socks lay crumpled by the next wicket. I've always treated Heather's teen queen power plays as bullshit But I'm really scared.
Who am I going to eat lunch with on Monday? I sound like an Afterschool Special. The viewer's viewpoint moves to a dress and a pair of jeans resting side by side at another wicket. That was my first game of Strip Croquet, you know. It's a lot more interesting than just flinging off your clothes and boning away on the neighbor's swing set. Her panties hang on one end, J. Well, I don't know. There's something to be said for I almost moved into high school out of sixth grade because I was some genius.
We all decided to chuck the idea because I'd have trouble making friends, blah-blah-blah. Gently fighting slumber, she murmurs up to J. I use my grand I.
Heather Chandler is one bitch that deserves to die. A well-timed lightning bolt through her window and Monday morning, all the other heathers, shit, everybody would be cast fucking adrift. See the condoms in the grass over there.
We killed tonight, Veronica. We murdered our baby. Just saying it's not hard to end a life. I guess I don't know what the hell I'm talking about. Let's just grow up, be adults, and die.
We are leaving soon for your grandmother's. If you care to join us Is that a "No" in your lingo? She skips the Saturday morning trip to Grandma's even when she's not hungover. Then let's just concoct ourselves a little hangover cure that'll induce her to spew red, white, and blue.
What's the upchuck factor on that? I'm a No Rust Build-up man, myself. That stuff'll kill her. We'll cook up some soup and put it in a Coke. Now should it be Chicken-Noodle or Bean-with-Bacon? Man Veronica, pull the plug on that shit. I say we go with Big Blue. You just can't go Besides, she'd never drink anything that looks like that. Okay we'll use this. She won't be able to tell what she's drinking.
An eerie pause ensues. She struts back to the counter in anger, icily muttering. Maybe we could cough a phlegm globber in it or something.
They both start coughing harshly. Well, milk and orange juice'll do quite nicely. Not the one with milk and orange juice in it. Hear about Veronica's affection for regurgitation? How the hell'd you get in here? Veronica knew you'd have a hangover. So I whipped this up. I'm not drinking that piss. I knew this stuff would be too intense. You think I'll drink it just because you call me chicken. She takes the cup, slams her head back and downs it all. She then launches her head forward, her face contorted in agony.
Something tells me you picked up the wrong cup. I can't believe it. I just killed my best friend. And your worst enemy. Oh jesus, I'm gonna What are we going to tell the cops? I can't believe this is my life. I'm going to have to send my S. I'm just a little freaked, all right?
It's one thing to want somebody out of your life. It's another thing to serve them a wake-up cup of Liquid Drainer We did a murder. In Ohio, that's a crime. But if this was like a suicide thing Adolescence is a period of life fraught with anxiety and confusion.
This is the last thing she'll ever write. She'll want to cash in on as many fifty-cent words as poss. That only proves my point more. The word is a badge for her failures at school. Nobody understood I had feelings too. Have you done this before? Circling the table is the gray-haired but savvy MRS. Coats are in chairs and cigarette smoke is in the air, as the group batters their way through a morning mourning conference. Keep things business as usual. She was very popular. These are troubled times for the young.
POPE I must say I was impressed to see that she made proper use of the word "myriad" in her suicide note after brutalizing it in a vocabulary test. PAULINE dramatically cutting in I find it profoundly disturbing that we are told of a tragic destruction of youth and all we can talk about is adequate mourning times and misused vocabulary words. A collective sigh goes across the room.
I suggest we get everyone into the cafeteria and just talk. Call me when the shuttle lands Now is this Heather the cheerleader? I'd be willing to go half a day for a cheerleader. POPE Let's just pack it in an hour early. I'm just so thrilled to be given an example of everything I've taught you.
That example is Heather Chandler. I have the note! Let us share together the feelings the suicide has spurred in us all. Who wants to begin? She sucked down a bowl of multi-purpose deodorizing disinfectant then she smashed The note continues to be breathlessly passed around. I realize now I wasn't really boring. She was just dissatisfied with her life. The good looks and bad manners gave her power, but it could not give her happiness.
She acknowledges it in horror, passes it on, then continues, realizing her ability to create truths for a captive audience. It's just so unfair! We should get a whole week off not just an hour. You could actually be digesting food. She'd want you to have it, Veronica. She always said you couldn't accessorize for shit.
I thought she was your usual airhead bitch. Guess I was wrong. Lot of us were. Everyone in the shower! Girls' laughter drifts in. Man, I never should have brought you. MATT Does this have something to do with menstrual cramps and shit? I can feel it.
In the distance, a T. She takes it off and drops it in a neaby trashcan. I choose to remember the good times. Like when we got our ears pierced at the mall. I can still hear those late night talks on the phone. The day I won her that stuffed rhino at the 4-H Fair, she said to me Heather, how many networks did you run to!
In my heart, Heather's still alive. What are you smiling at? Heather Chandler is more popular than ever now. He inexplicably calls out. Why son, I didn't hear you come in. He is rather malevolently holding a rowing machine. He rows as he speaks. The Brady Bunch sputters on the T. Some damn tribe of withered old bitches doesn't want us to terminate that fleabag hotel. All because Glenn Miller and his band once took a shit there.
It's just like Kansas. Do you remember fucking Kansas? That was the one with wheat right? Thirty Fourth of July fireworks attached to the trunk. Gosh Pop, I almost forgot to introduce my girlfriend. Pop and son laugh.
Jason, why don't you ask your little friend to stay for dinner. The last time I saw my Mom, she was waving out the window of a library in Texas. Pate is on the table. DAD smokes a cigarette. DAD So what was the first day after Heather's suicide like? So will we get to meet this dark horse prom contender? DAD looking at his cigarette Goddamn. Will somebody please tell me why I smoke these damn things? DAD immediately takes another drag with a wide grin. She storms away, pouting.
A look of horror passes over her face and she savagely scrubs her lips. He gently kisses her forehead then quickly rebuffs the spot. She responds this time with a satisfied smile. I blame not Heather but rather a society that tells its youth that the answers are on the MTV video games.
We must pray the other teenagers of Sherwood, Ohio, know the name of that "righteous dude" who can solve their problems The viewer hears what she is thinking. May Heather Chandler rest in peace even though she committed suicide. Oh God, this is a tragic thing and sometimes I have a hard time dealing with it and stuff.
Please send Heather to heaven and all that. Dear God, make sure this never happens to me. I do not think I could handle suicide and that's the God's honest truth.
Jesus God in heaven, uh, why did you kill such hot snatch. That's a joke, man. People are so serious. I prayed for the death of Heather Chandler many times and I felt bad every time I did, but I kept doing it anyway. Now I know you understood everything. Technically I didn't kill Heather Chandler but hey, who am I trying to kid, right? I just want my high school to be a nice place. Did that sound bitchy?
What are you doing tonight? Maybe watch some T. Put Billy the Kid on hold tonight, I'll never forget it.
