God, I love that movie!There's a scene at the end that I suspect goes right over the heads of most of the audience. Veronica is on the steps of the school, watching her ex-boyfriend trying to set off his suicide bomb, which he's having trouble doing since she just shot off a couple of his fingers. She takes a cigarette and puts it between her lips, but doesn't light it. He looks at her and realizes why: Because she knows it will be ignited by the force of the bomb blast, and she's so disdainful of him that her gesture is a total "Fuck You."The bomb explodes, and she inhales from the lit cigarette.I think "Heathers" was the career high point for the actors and the writer of the film.
I disagree with the last part of your final point M. Carter: I think that 'Batman Returns' is another high point of Daniel Waters' career. The whole Desert War speech to the penguins, "Give us a kiss AntiClaus"... shivers down my spine.Now Michael Lehmann on the other hand...

"Co-sign. He could have walked away with that Oscar easily. Not only is it one of the best male performances of the year, but they owe him for Grand Budapest Hotel. Why no campaign? He's not bothered, clearly." -- James Birnie
