Tired of all these male-driven comedies? Then follow Cher's advice: Snap out of it.
"Grow up, Heather. Bulimia is so '87." It's been said that "Heathers" is the original "Mean Girls," but let's give this black comedy the props it deserves: It is far weirder than any comedy of today is allowed to be. Note the animalistic connection between Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, the weeping father who loves his "dead gay son," or the gothic strains of that croquet fantasy. Your life is immediately richer once you start incorporating phrases like "This isn't just a spoke in my menstrual cycle" into your lexicon.
