This movie gives a sexy, sensual twist to the stereotypical "teen flick." It communicates a new idea of sexuality amongst present-day teenagers, rather than the "bang her and leave her" mentality that is most commonly portrayed. I think the cast was very well chosen, and the dynamics of the cast were amazing. There weren't too many "no names" or "B list" actors, but on the other hand there weren't too many "A listers," which would have thrown the focus off the plot. The music used in the movie was perfect because it accentuated the <more>
tone of the movie. I give "Cruel intentions" a "10" because it is a saucy love story without all the corniness of normal movies.
I found this movie to be one of a kind, it was a lot better than I originally thought it would be, the name didn't make the movie sound too good, but after watching the movie I thought it was excellent. I found Reese Witherspoon's performance in this movie to be outstanding, I think SHE was the person who made the movie what it was. The movie started off by showing what kind of a person Ryan was in the film, but as the movie commenced it showed how he fell in love and by the end of the movie he had done a complete 180 from how he had started. This movie was just so much better than <more>
most of the other films I watched in those days, and it got me into not judging a movie by its title or by what other people think. Some people had different views on it, but I thought it was brilliant and I don't think they could have done much more to improve on this movie.
Excellent teen flick which will have you feeling good from start to finish (by Catherine_Grace_Zeh)
CRUEL INTENTIONS, in my opinion, is an excellent teen flick which will have you feeling good from start to finish. When Dr. Greenbaum Swoosie Kurtz pounded on her office window and yelled at Sebastian Ryan Phillippe after Marci Tara Reid called her in tears, I really felt good. To me, the performances were top grade, the direction was flawless, the costumes were perfectly designed, and the set was nice. Also, the scenes with Kathryn Sarah Michelle Gellar were excellent, too. Now, in conclusion, I highly recommend this excellent teen flick which will have you feeling good from start to <more>
finish to any Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, or Reese Witherspoon fan who hasn't seen it. You're in for a good time, so go to the video store, rent it or buy it, kick back with a friend, and watch it.
A fantastic update about the rules of seduction (by Smells_Like_Cheese)
Cruel Intentions was my favorite movie when I was 14, to me it was everything I just wanted to be as a teen, despite how cruel and manipulative Katheryn was, I thought she was the coolest and strongest female character I'd ever seen on film. Now a couple years afterwards I read the book and saw the original Dangerous Liasons with John Malkovich and Glenn Close, I still very much enjoy Cruel Intentions. Like I said, this was just a terrific updated version of the ultimate story of love and betrayal, it was a little Dawson's Creek at times, but from what angle they went at, it was <more>
understandable. It had the biggest stars: Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillipe, Reese Withersppon, Tara Reid, Joshua Jackson, and Selma Blair. May I say they gave extremely impressive performances, but the best without a doubt goes to Sarah Michelle Gellar, she was just ultimately brilliant as Kathryn Muertiel, the cruelist girl in school who's goal isn't to be the most popular, but to dominate everyone's innocence.Kathryn and Sebastion are step brother and sister, they have a partnership together to work the school into a total wave of turning the most innocent into the most corrupted. They also have a love for each other, but Kathryn is the only girl Sebastian can't have, it kills him and she teases him constantly over it. Kathryn asks Sebastian if he could help her corrupt the girl that took her boyfriend, Cecil, a naive young girl who is under Kathryn's wing, but isn't aware of her intentions. But the plot thickens when Kathryn finds out that Cecil is in love with her black music teacher which her mother wouldn't like very much. Then Sebastian finds a girl, Annette, who believes that people shouldn't experience the act of love until they are in love. He and Kathryn make a bet while he seduces Cecil, that if he can corrupt Annette, he gets to bed Kathryn. But there's one problem, he might be in over his head when he starts to fall in love with Annette.Cruel Intentions is a great movie with good, strong performances. For what might have been a typical teen movie, this was just a good idea on where the director made decisions on how to make the story real. It's very romantic, heart breaking, and even has it's dark comedic moments for a little breath of air. I will always recommend this film to anyone, it's a great story. I would also highly recommend to watch Dangerous Liasons along with Cruel Intentions, so you have a little bit of a different variety. You'll find yourself a bit seduced with these movies.9/10
A sassy, sexy, and downright seductive shocker!. Cruel Intentions is one of my all time favorite films. (by callanvass)
Cruel Intentions is seriously a movie that gives me the chills, every time I watch it. Its bold, its daring, and downright chilling. The main thing I dug about Cruel Intentions, was the relationships, and the manipulation for there own benefits. Sebastian is used to getting his own way, he uses woman to sleep with them, and manipulates people for the hell of it, along with his sister Kathryn. What we don't know at the start of the movie, is how Sebastian has been affected by Kathryn. Then comes along Annette, who Sebastian figures will be his little toy, his own personal trophy so to <more>
speak. As much as I loved the relationship between Kathryn and Sebastian, I adored the one between Annette and Sebastian even more. We see this arrogant young charmer, who loves to mess people up, and as the movie progresses, we see the real him start to come out, thanks to Annette. Sebastian isn't used to fun, he's not used to genuine laughter, other than the laughter he got for his own amusement, and Annette gave that all to him.It just seemed so genuine. I'm a rare guy who enjoys romance, and this put a whole new deal on romance for me, They pushed the envelope many times, and I loved every minute of it. One thing I was disappointed about though is they didn't give us enough info, on how Kathryn and Sebastian became so evil together. The prequel|If that's what you wanna call it| gave us snippets of information, but it was basically a rehash, so I would really love to see a real movie focused on the relationship of Kathryn and Sebastian. Cruel Intentions is a movie I can't stop thinking about, each time I watch it. Each time I have new questions I need answering, and every time I noticed something new, something that stimulates my mind even more. It's just a fascinating film, and one of my favorite daring love stories.Performances. Ryan Phillippe in his best role in my opinion, delivers a suave, emotional, and downright convincing show. At the start of the movie we are aware of his charm, but we hate what he's pulling, yet somehow he's able to make us relate to him. It's a terrific performance, that often gets overlooked, how can people honestly say he's wooden?. Sarah Michelle Gellar gives one hell of a devious, yet deliciously sexy performance. She's clearly a backstabbing woman, who cares about no one about herself, and at the time Sebastian seemingly is the only one who understands her, it's only what's revealed in the diary, that we come to see how he felt. Reese Witherspoon is fabulous as Annette. Perfectly innocent, yet wonderfully charming, and good-hearted. Her simple gorgeous smile, or her easy-going charm can put a smile on your face in a minute. Her chemistry with Ryan was outstanding. Selma Blair plays the ditsy Cecile to perfection. She's clearly a ditz, yet a likable one. Joshua Jackson has a small bit as a gay man. Sean Patrick Thomas plays the token black part down to a T, and a has a key role in the end. Tara Reid has a small part in the beginning.Bottom line. Cruel Intentions is a movie I'm very fond of, and I can proudly say it's one of my all time favorites. This isn't just a movie for teens, it's a powerful love story for us adults too. I think everybody needs to experience this movie at least once. An absolute must see! Now I gotta check out Dangerous Liasons, because that's what this movie is based on.9/10
Breaks the barrier of conventional teenage genre (by Stampsfightclub)
Sarah Michelle Gellar Buffy stars as Kathryn, a manipulative woman who places a bet with her step brother Sebastian that he can't get the principal's stepdaughter Annette into bed.Based on Choderlos de Laclos' novel, Cruel Intentions brings a dark and sexy tale of lies, manipulation and romance to our screens in a dramatic and diverse way, with superb acting and excellent direction and acting.The lead three actors, Gellar, Phillippe Flags of our fathers and Witherspoon Walk the line are all tremendous in their respective roles and do the plot justice by giving sexy and <more>
sophisticated performances in one of the sexiest dramas of the 90's.The plot is very character driven, which was helped along by these great performances. Focusing strongly upon ideologies of love, sex and trust, Cruel Intentions breaks the barrier of conventional teenage films by being serious with strong issues rather than slapstick with no point.Very consistent and sophisticated is the narrative, and these issues give a little side story and advice to teenager viewers about the do's and don'ts in relationships. This film has convinced me to give the novel a try.Ryan Phillippe is the star of the show with a very dramatic and calm performance as the lover boy, very sarcastic and smart in his approach to dealing with the opposite sex.Gellar's performance is remarkable, an intelligent portrayal of Kathryn.The whole concept of sex is staring at you in the face for the majority of the film, with controversy also showing, making the film a thought provoking film that is an essential watch, and one of the finest acted teenage films of recent years.
For a teen movie, this is a cery good movie, which technically is a updated version of Dangerous Liasons with Ryan Phillipe taking over the John Malkovich character and the women this time played by Reese Witherspoon and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Thanks to these 3 performances, this film gets to live up to it's reputation because this film isn't just romance and drama even though it's chock full of that , it is also sweet and funny. One of the honorable mentions of 1999, definately the best teen film of the year besides American Pie . A
Feels Good to be Bad. (by so_original)
"Cruel Intentions" is an update of the 1988 film "Dangerous Liaisons", set in high school. It tells the story of two wicked, sex-obsessed step-siblings Sebastian Valmont , played by Ryan Phillippe, and Kathryn Merteuil, played by Sarah Michelle Gellar. Kathryn makes a bet with notorious playboy Sebastian over their virginal classmate Annette Reese Witherspoon . If he can seduce her, he gets to sleep with his step-sister Kathryn. However if he can't, Kathryn wins his prized Jaguar. In the process of this bet, Sebastian ends up falling for Annette, against his own will. <more>
Meanwhile, Kathryn spends her time scheming against the naive Cecile Selma Blair , who unknowingly stole Kathryn's ex-boyfriend.The actors in this film were well casted. Ryan Phillippe gives Sebastian the perfect transformation from cold-hearted casanova to a guy who genuinely starts to fall in love. But, it is Sarah Michelle Gellar who really shines in this film. To most of the world, Kathryn seems like the All-American girl. Studious, warm, and friendly. However, it is around Sebastian that she really shows the bitch behind the Little Miss Sunshine mask. She's evil, manipulative, and openly sexual. Sarah gets so into the role, and makes it entertaining and compelling to watch. It also creates a contrast between the two leads. While they are both corrupt, Sebastian is more upfront about his dark side, especially with his known reputation as a heartbreaker. However, Kathryn hides behind a smile to almost everyone. She chooses to do her evil doings behind close doors, and when she stabs someone in the back they are oblivious or blindsided. Annette could've been just played as naive and wholesome, but Reese Witherspoon manages to give her depth. Not only is she the virgin, but she's also strong, smart, sweet-hearted, and is the one girl who warms Sebastian's heart. The other characters seem very secondary. Cecile is only there to be a pawn in Kathryn's endless mind games, and share an infamous kiss, as well as Ronald Sean Patrick Thomas .The film also creates a different atmosphere instead of the average "teen movie". The script is dark, dramatic, and comedic in some spots. Also, the teenagers aren't airheads, with the exception of Cecile. They are sophisticated and wealthy, and some more like adults than adolescents. The writers don't dumb down the script for teenagers, but at the same time they make it accessible for teenagers at the same time. The plot is somewhat thin, but the dialogue and acting manages to make up for that. It's enjoyable to watch the characters indulge in their manipulations, but it's also satisfying although somewhat predictable to see Sebastian change through finding love. The ending is a good example of karma and I won't reveal it to you if you haven't seen it , and makes you feel as if there is a happy ending, even though all is not well.I would recommend this title to many people, and it's darker, sexier, more entertaining and less predictable than the average teenage film.
Two wealthy step-siblings of an elite Manhattan prep school make a wager: to de-flower the new headmaster's daughter Reese Witherspoon before the start of term.Having gone to high school in the latter half of the 1990s, this was one of those films that really defined a generation. All the big stars of the day were in it, and at least one 9Witherspoon has one on to bigger and better things. At the time I was not aware that this was a remake of a 1980s film. I found it to be brilliant and quite deviously original.I now know that it is a remake, but think no less of it because of this. In <more>
many ways, this film is even more powerful. John Malkovich did a fine job capturing what spoiled aristocrats can do, but it is all the more troublesome what spoiled teenagers can do.
