Cool girls play croquet in plaid skirts. A trenchcoat-wearing J.D. (Christian Slater) makes Winona blush with "Greetings and Salutations". So very. She drinks slushies; they flirt in a convenience store. They embrace murderous lust naked under the stars. Suburban teenagers trying to escape bland normality were blown away (like J.D!).
