A funny look at teen life in a Catholic high school, set in 1965, this comedy focuses on three teens who are as different as night and day yet share a penchant for getting into hot water with the priests at St. Basil's. Michael (Andrew McCarthy) is a new student who takes up with Caesar (Malcom Danare), a genius of ample physical proportions and aspirations of going to Harvard, and both are forced into an uneasy relationship with Rooney (Kevin Dillon, brother of Matt), the class bully. The hijinx of the unlikely trio come under the disciplinary action of the authorities-that-be: Brother Thadeus (Donald Sutherland) is the headmaster of the school, Brother Constance (Jay Patterson) is the nearly sadistic disciplinarian, and Brother Timothy (John Heard) has the most sympathy for the students. It is the interaction of the three renegades and a few cohorts with the priests in charge of keeping the school's rules that eventually lead to some reconsideration on both sides of the fence. … More

Fitfully amusing, mostly juvenile.
Audience Reviews for Heaven Help Us
A fantastic film, one of my all time favourites growing up! It?s hilarious, brilliantly acted and is dreadfully overlooked.More
An all-time favorite that I don't mind watching excessively. It leaves me laughing hard each and everytime.
FAVORITE SCENE: Kevin Dillon's character along with four others making out in a car on a tow bridge. As things heats up, the bridge starts to open and leaving the four to escape and watch the car fall apart.
