Croquet At Veronica’s House

In the 1989 black comedy cult classic movie Heathers, Veronica is played by Winona Ryder and she is part of the most popular clique at her Ohio high school, but she disapproves of the other girls’ cruel behavior.  She and her new boyfriend Jason Dean known as J.D. (Christian Slater) confront the clique leader Heather Chandler (Kim Walker) and accidentally poison her, so they make it appear as a suicide.  Soon Veronica realizes that J.D. is a dark sociopath that is intentionally killing students that he does not like.  She races to stop J.D. while also clashing with the clique’s new leader, Heather Duke who is played by Shannen Doherty.  The film portrays four teenage girls and three of them are named Heather, where Heather McNamara is portrayed by Lisanne Falk.

The clique is known as the Heathers and although they are popular, they are wicked and mean.  They are vicious as they go around mocking others, playing pranks, and they trying to make everyone else’ life a living hell.  There is a scene in the movie where the Heathers play a game of croquet, which brings out their vindictive behavior.  Croquet is a fun game that is usually played on a lawn, where each player has a ball and they use a mallet to whack their wooden ball through hoops. There is a rule called Ball-in-Hand, that goes into effect if you strike another person’s ball with your own.  This rule allows you to reposition your ball against your opponents ball, so you can drive it away with your mallet.

      1. Two reasons. First it is 29 years old and I figure you to be about 25. Second you seem to lead a sheltered life and this movie had a suggested MPAA Rating: Rated R for language throughout, violence, sexual content, and alcohol and drug use – all involving teens.
