tina fey accompli
So, someone (Tina Fey, specifically) decides they want to make a modern take-off on Heathers. Only without the murders covered-up as suicides, the shoulder pads and Christian Slater. Equal parts satire of high school and popularity, essentially. And surprise-surprise. That movie? Actually a really good, funny movie. We know. No croquet either. This one’s running for two nights, so you can do a protracted double-take. Fingers crossed that the second screening has the alternative ending where the school explodes.
