Has some redeeming qualities, but I don't recommend this one

The main reason I wanted to see this one is because I am a big SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR fan. BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER is one of my all-time favorite shoes. I also rather like REESE WITHERSPOON and a few of the other actors in this movie. The plot also seemed original and interesting, and of course there was no hiding the sexy scenes that seemed like it would add to the plot. It turns out this movie is just a collection of these scenes, with a seemingly original, but actually predictable, plot to hold them together.

Kathryn Merteuil (Sarah Michelle Gellar) and Sebastian Valmont (Ryan Phillippe) are two victims of bad parenting. They are two rich stepchildren who enjoy making other students miserable. Kathryn, with a reputation as the perfect student, often uses others to ruin people's lives. Sebastian, who has a very nasty reputation that he is proud of, prefers to do the work himself. He finds an attractive girl, charms her over, sleeps with her, and finally ruining her reputation. Kathryn has set her sights on the ditsy Cecile Caldwell (Selma Blair), while Sebastian goes for the great challenge of seducing and ruining the all-American, virgin, goody-goody Annette Hargrove (Reese Witherspoon). Sebastian has a bet with Kathryn that he can win Annette over. If she wins, she gets his Jaguar. If he wins, she gets to sleep with her.

The plot, in writing, sounds fairly original. This is really just a shield. In truth, this movie is a mixture of two things. One is a predictable love story. The other is a bunch of scenes intended to turn on the teenagers who watch it, and get them to watch it over and over. I am a teenager, and I had no real desire to watch this movie again afterwards.

The acting is about even. Sarah Michelle Gellar does an excellent job as the scheming, evil rich-b***h. Reese Witherspoon did a pretty good job, but her character was not especially interesting. Joshua Jackson and Selma Blair are extremely annoying in this movie, which is good because it is what they are meant to be. Blair did better than Jackson, for the record. Ryan Phillippe did OK, but I really didn't buy his evil rich-guy character. The characters in this movie aren't anything great. This is probably because the two main characters are rich mean people, which most viewers can't relate to or enjoy much. The target audience is obviously teens, but these people, although cute, probably remind them too much of students they hate. Witherspoon's character is a little 2D, mostly because she was underplayed and the two main characters were overplayed. Blair's character is pretty fun.

The movie is very predictable. I had the entire movie figured out by the previews, and my theory (which was correct) didn't change at all watching this movie. There is only one part I didn't see coming, which happens near the end. The ending of this movie is the best part, even though I saw it coming since the beginning.

If you feel like getting drunk and watching a movie with college buds so you can drool and howl at the TV, this movie is a good choice. Most teenagers would probably enjoy it too, especially fans of the actors, but I can't say I recommend this one.

The brainlessness of not explaining why facts and mysteries deserve to be synonymous

The 1999 adaptation, Cruel Intentions, is a film which is an error that doesn't deserve to be betrayed - an injury that doesn't deserve to be betrayed.

It shouldn't make any sense, that an injury can have the right to be honoured. An injury is pain, and it's grief and it's loss. A loss is intolerable, in actual fact - so Cruel Intentions actually translates to being a film which is an intolerance that doesn't deserve to be itself.

From a casual perspective, of life, it's literally impossible to experience an intolerance. With this being the case, Cruel Intentions is a film which takes the very root concept of an impossibility and turns it into a mystery. Mystery is connected to impossibility, and therefore certainty is connected to possibility - all possibility is certain.

And then that's when Cruel Intentions finds itself in a very awkward, and in a very messed up position: Cruel Intentions connects certainty to possibility, however, it's made this connection under the precarious terms of having also connected impossibility to certainty as well.

Unfortunately for Cruel Intentions, it's just a no-brainer: connecting both possibility and impossibility to certainty is one of the most intellectually brainless things that's possible.

How is it even remotely sane, that certainty is made into something that's simultaneously possible and impossible?

A certainty is a fact. A fact isn't a possibility, and yet it's also a fact that a fact can't be an impossibility either. Where does the insanity end?

Because of its lack of focus, and because of its lack of discipline and its lack of vision, the 1999 film Cruel Intentions is the absolute brainlessness of not giving a reason for why neither possibility and impossibility deserve to be distinguished from each other

A movie which had potential

A playboy with an impressive history and notoriety makes a bet with his mischievous step-sister. He will have to sleep with a girl determined to wait until true love in order to take his sister for a ride, or lose his beloved and expensive convertible.

It's an interesting, thrilling, sensual but also funny movie which shows that ultimately everyone can change if the right conditions are met, while other's cruel actions can tend to be limitless until the inevitable ending unexpectedly comes, an strikes with a huge blow. Unfortunately, its simplistic plot isn't able to sustain the main intrigue while the finale is quite disappointing, even easily avoidable. It's good in what it tries to achieve but an average movie in every other aspect.
