I had recently seen the musical so I had been dying to see the movie and wow I wasn’t disappointed! It’s now my favourite movie. I adore it, so much. Even my fiancé who doesn’t really like movies gave it 8/10, and his favourite movie got a 7/10 haha. But honestly, wow. It’s amazing.

The acting is pretty great. Thinking that it was made in the 80’s is so weird. It covers a lot of issues that are still present in today’s society, so that worked out well.

From seeing the musical to the movie, there are a few differences that I want to point out in case anyone is in the same position I was in. Heather Chandler is more complicated and I like that about it. Heather Duke is more redeemable, I felt. Veronica is friends with the Heathers before the movie starts (cutting Beautiful out completely). Martha is different and NOT Veronica’s childhood best friend. Heather MacNamara (I’m not sure how to spell it sorry) doesn’t admit to her feelings in front of everyone but on a radio station which is kinda cool. There’s not the whole Heather haunting Veronica either. There’s more of Veronica’s parents and I like that, it’s more amusing. Now for the part everyone cares about- JD. JD is wow. Very different. More manipulative, more controlling, more abusive. But still an amazing, well developed character. I feel like he’s more redeemable in the musical, though. But I still very much liked the portrayal and the unfolding of his character. I don’t think the musical version and the movie version can be talked about in quite the same way, as they’re so different.

Honestly, I love love love love LOVE this movie. So much. I’m going to watch it again tonight, and I never watch a movie twice that close. I love it. I just love it so much.

Classic. Still good despite the passage of time.

Excellent film. Just as good as I remember it. 'It's so very...'.
Minus 1 for lack of subtitles.

Perfect (after getting rid of the swedish subtitles)
Verified purchase
The 9£ version comes with a choice of 4 nordic language subtitles which can be removed only by ripping it.

Otherwise - just as I remember it. One of the most vicious satires on "girl cliques" which most of us have seen during our school years. Pity about the 18 classification - I would say that it is a necessary viewing for most teenagers (of both genders). Though people like me who are old enough to have seen the original theatrical release will enjoy it too. It has one of the better performance by Winona Ryder. Christian Slater is also quite good in his role.

Not so good
Verified purchase
If your into absurd and upsetting than it's the perfect movie for you. Me, personally. I was dissapointed. There is a lot of good mowies from the 80s n the 90s but this one was tacky n in poor taste. I did not like it.

Not as "very" as I remembered.

Rented it for the kids to watch . It has very dark humour some of which may be frowned on now. Christian looks so young. It was ok but basically not as good as I thought it was .

A classic tale of bullies and revenge
Verified purchase
Shame it didn’t have subtitles, but I enjoyed it nevertheless (with the sound turned up louder!)
Dark tale of teenage love against a backdrop of typical high school bullies and bullied.

80’s at its best

Ahh the 80’s. What can I say. Very funny in parts some times unintentionally but a good film none the less.

I watched this movie way back in the 1990s and loved it. Unfortunately, returning to it some decades later I saw it for what it was: cliched, hackneyed, hammy and trite. I really would avoid it.
