The other comment always brought up when the three ‘Heathers’ were together (that simply wouldn’t die) was the oh-so-original: “Hey it’s just like that movie, Heathers! You guys are the Heathers!” (Insert Bevis & Butthead style laugh here.) Sigh.
In an effort to rise above this stupidity, the others Heathers and I attempted to not give in and watch the film that was our namesake for as long as we possibly could. But then, one fateful evening, we watched it…. and I thought it was ok. I am not a huge fan, but I could see the appeal. However, I feel like I need to watch it again now that I am older, wiser– and more cynical.
Why I even mention this story is because I have heard rumors of a sequel! A sequel? To Heather’s? How does one do a sequel to that film? And since I am on the topic, why do they even make sequels? I can understand if it’s intended to be a series or films from the start, like this or that. But when you start making sequels of cult films from the 80’s, I think it seems like maybe the idea well is running a bit dry. Just saying. Next it will be Heathers the Musical. And if we learned anything from Big the Musical, a well loved 1980’s film does not guarantee a hit broadway muscial!
