Nope. No "Heavenly Creatures" in this movie-from-hell.

If you're seriously looking for a real "ding-dong" demented, teen, lesbian "love-story" movie (with a truly laughable murder thrown in for good measure), then Heavenly Creatures is your one-way ticket to the 5th dimension of sheer, grate-on-your-nerves wackiness.

I really don't know where to begin expressing my total disappointment over this utterly preposterous, unbelievably irksome, and decidedly over-rated Chick Flick from 1994.

Had I been able to take something of a genuine liking towards the Parker/Hulme characters, then, yes, that would've made a whole world of difference when it came to my appreciation for Heavenly Creatures.

But, I found these two flaky teens (who were forever hand-in-hand and (unconvincingly) gushing over each other) to be about as irritating a pair of lovers (be they straight or gay) that I've ever had to endure in any movie in a mighty long time.

Anyways - When it finally came down to Pauline & Juliet actually getting around to committing their nasty, little murder (which, of course, was a lot more bloody than it was believable) I had grown so frickin' sick & tired of this film's non-stop nonsense that I really couldn't have cared about it, one way, or the other.

A remarkable film on all counts. Tolkien filmmaker Peter Jackson's creative imagination is clearly evident with Pauline & Juliet's fantasy clay people sequences. I didn't realize that "Two and a Half Men" supporting actress Melanie Lynskey was a fellow New Zealander. It was weird hearing her native accent here as a pouting, rebellious teenager. She and Kate Winslet were obviously destined for bigger things with these feature film debuts, although I'll say Winslet's was the standout.

What a horrific and strange story, hard to believe it's real! The acting is amazing, and the way the film is laid out, is incredibly creative.

Terribly sad, and strange, the story that is, the film was great.

Herbert Rieper (to his daughter Pauline, who's listening to a Mario Lanza record): "Hey! Isn't that that famous Irish singer: 'Murray O'Lanza'?"

Juliet Hulme (to Pauline Parker): "...All the best people have bad chests and bone diseases. It's all frightfully romantic!"
