Cruel Intentions (1997)

Cruel IntentionsThree and a Half Stars

Who’s in it

Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Selma Blair, Ryan Philippe

What was good

If you like evil, seduction and devious teenagers who act 12 years more sexually advanced then they should be, then this is a good movie for you. I like it for the dark humor related to the content, and the beautiful people and the characters they play, the whole movie is kind of a tease.

What sucked

The acting isn’t the best, Philippe is hard to swallow most of the movie even though he does have some comic delivery. But this movie is really dated for me now. It does deal with high school type betrayal and lust and other adult concepts in young kids and can be hard to relate to or even believe.

Who should go see this

If you like those high school / college movies, this just isn’t the party type. This is not a date movie, and this isn’t a movie I would watch on a first time couples date, more of something that I would watch maybe if you really like Reese Witherspoon. She seems really young in this movie, but beyond that, if you like this genre you’ll like this but I don’t know who I would actually recommend this to among my friends, it would be very limited.
