‘C’MON HEATHER, WHAT DID YOU HAVE FOR BREAKFAST, A BRAIN TUMOR?” : Yeah, I’m watching “Heathers” as we speak. Despite the hideous ending (apparently in the original ending J.D. actually blew up the school, but it was “too depressing”), the movie is hysterical. And it’s startling how much it–like the excellent “Ice Storm“–just assumes that a disruption of the family is a disaster for teens. (J.D. and his father ironically switch roles; in Heather #2′s big radio-show confessional, the last thing you hear her say is, “My parents are divorced…” etc.) But anyway, questions of human nature aside, it’s a great flick, go see it. “Eskimo!”
