The oh-so-beloved 1980s movie “Heathers” is now a musical. I’ll wait for a moment while you squeal with glee (at least, that’s how I’d react if I were you). Rumors that “Heathers” would be headed to the stage, along with several incarnations of the production, have made the rounds these past few years. The show is finally playing off-Broadway at New World Stages in Manhattan and a cast recording is set to release in June. Playbill has shared some rehearsal footage to give us a better idea of what to expect. Keep reading »

Corn Nuts! I am literally shaking with excitement over the news that “Heathers” is being revamped into a TV show. The 1989 movie, the ultimate high school revenge fantasy, elevated Winona Ryder to star status as she tried to fit in with her school’s mean girls, all named Heather. (The best: Heather Chandler, played by pre-”90210″ Shannen Doherty). Until J.D. (a hot Christian Slater) rolled into town and made her his accomplice in murdering the cool kids in school and making ‘em look like suicides. “Heathers” remains one of my top five favorite flicks of all time, and I have a feeling a show based on it could be very, very good—like “Gossip Girl” with a dark comedy twist. Jenny Bicks, a “Sex and the City” writer, is also executive producing. And the word on the street is that Winona and Christian may even be reprising their bad-ass roles. Prepare your croquet mallets and start singing “Que Sera Sera.” [Press Association] Keep reading »
We have a love/hate relationship with Mean Girls. In reality, we know from firsthand experience that Mean Girls can ruin a teen’s life. But when it comes to TV and film, we find Mean Girls totally entertaining and have been known to root for them. Usually, the Mean Girl in a show or movie is the most developed character. Being saccharin sweet like Serena van der Woodsen in the first season of “Gossip Girl” or Lauren Conrad throughout the run of “The Hills” is easy. But it takes work to be conniving, cunning, and misunderstood all at once. We decided to pay homage to entertainment’s best Mean Girls after the jump. Tell us in the comments which one you identify with the most! Keep reading »
Heathers, one of the all-time best high school movies, was written by Daniel Waters. Is his new movie, Sex and Love 101 (starring Simon Baker and Winona Ryder) destined for greatness? Hmmm, we shall see. It seems to be about a man named Rodrick who is hot and has a lot going for him. Then his secretary (named Trixie?) gets an email with a list of all the people he has ever slept with, and ever will. The thing is, he’s engaged. I guess he has to go down the list and sleep with everyone before he gets married? And then he meets Death Nell, Winona Ryder’s character, who is “the worst thing to happen to men in quite some time.” She seems evil or something. The movie is out today (though the release is limited, it seems). Keep reading »
