Heathers (1989)

“Dear Diary, my teen-angst bullshit now has a body count.”

The Story:

Veronica Sawyer (Winona Ryder) belongs to a clique of “Heathers”: there’s Heather Chandler (Kim Walker), Heather Duke (Shannen Doherty) and Heather McNamara (Lisanne Falk). These three holy terrors dominate the school’s social scene with an iron fist; as Veronica watches their reign of terror unfold, she begins to realize she was much happier before she was popular. Coincidentally, a rebellious new student, Jason Dean (Christian Slater), shows up and similarly sees through all of the bullshit and befriends Veronica. The two plot revenge on the Heathers, and while Veronica just wants to pull innocent pranks, J.D. has much more malicious and deadly intentions.

The Bikini Carwash Company (1992)

“I need something to cover my boobs.”
“I’ll cover your boobs!”

The Story:

The story? Oh yeah, the story! Thankfully allergies don’t run in the family, because when ol’ Uncle Elmer (Patrick M. Wright) is hit hard by the sneezing bug and has to take leave for a summer’s hospital stay, he calls up his nephew Jack (Joe Dusic) to run his company in his absence. The Sunshine Carwash isn’t raking in the dough, but it’s not fledgling either, keeping their established clientele happy. Elmer gets a big bomb dropped on him when he learns that his medical insurance won’t cover this ailment and requests that Jack picks up business – fast! Luckily for both of them that a troupe of bikini girls on summer break from college is in need of funds for a vacation and the brainiest of the bunch, Melissa (Kristi Ducati), gets the wettest idea California has ever seen!
