Heathers (1989)




If you don't like this movie then I have one question for you - what's your damage?  Heathers is in my top 5 favorite films of all time and one of the most quotable ever - "I love my dead, gay son!," "How very," "f*ck me gently with a chainsaw."  This list goes on and on.  Daniel Waters is the anti-John Hughes with a dark, gritty look at high school life.  Winona Ryder and Jack Nicholson Christian Slater lead a strong cast spewing hip, venomous dialogue that remains timeless.  The cult classic has lived on as an off-Broadway musical and soon-to-be television series. 

Heathers was filmed in San Marino, Pacific Palisades, Studio City, Pasadena, Santa Monica, Tujunga and Los Angeles, CA
