Product Overview

Sarah Michelle Gellar and Ryan Phillippe sizzle as a pair of unscrupulous siblings in a deliciously sexy tale of seduction, revenge and conquest.

After cleverly seducing and ruining the reputation of an unsuspecting classmate (Selma Blair), the sparks fly when Kathryn (Gellar) poses the ultimate challenge to her insatiable stepbrother, Sebastian (Phillippe): deflower the headmaster's beautiful, virgin daughter, Annette (Reese Witherspoon). If he fails, Kathryn gets his most prized possession, but if he succeeds, Sebastian gets to possess and bed Kathryn.

The stakes are high, but for Sebastian, the payoff is feverishly irresistible and before the summer's over, no one will escape their relentless game of cat and mouse, until one of them is bitten by the most unlikely sensation of all...love.

Review Written and directed by Roger Kumble, Cruel Intentions re-imagines Les Liaisons Dangereuses as a teenage black comedy. Upper-crust Manhattanite step-siblings Sebastian (Ryan Phillippe) and Kathryn (Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Sarah Michelle Gellar) embark on a game of a sexual chess when high school stud Sebastian bets Kathryn that he will be able to seduce the virginal Annette (Reese Witherspoon). If he wins, he gets to bed the stepsister he lusts after, while Kathryn will get his classic car if he loses...Witherspoon acquits herself well as the fair Annette, but Gellar in the role of vicious Kathryn really seems like a high school girl -- play acting and way out of her league. As for Philippe, his performance does recall John Malkovich's Valmont in Stephen Frears' 1978 Dangerous Liaisons. It is a lovely homage that is likely to send the viewer scurrying to watch Frears' superior adaptation.

Review Cruel Intentions would be an Oscar contender...Check out Sarah Michelle Gellar as Kathryn Merteuil, a Manhattan rich kid whose public smile of virtue masks the vile heart of a vixen. Tottering around her parents' elegant town house in high heels and debutante drag, she screams for revenge against the guys who screwed her over. The sight conjures up delicious camp memories of performances that the critics have flambed, such as Patty Duke's in Valley of the Dolls and Barbra (fingernails!) Streisand's in The Prince of Tides...Witherspoon fares best among the actors as the virgin who writes a manifesto for Seventeen magazine titled "Why I Plan to Wait" - a challenge that Kathryn and Sebastian can't resist. She adds much-needed warmth to this igloo of a movie. Otherwise, watching Cruel Intentions is like sitting through a high school production of a classic play done in modern dress by actors who don't have a clue what's going on. Lust, betrayal, revenge and death reduce audiences for these dangerous liaisons to something Laclos never figured on: fits of giggles.

Quotes
George Pennachhio, KABC-TV 50% wicked! 50% fun! 100% entertaining!
Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times Gellar's character is played with cool confidence, and Phillippe is engaging. Blair is a delicious scene-stealer.
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly Foxy, snotty, enjoyably trashy...calculatedly, wantonly naughty.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times ...the film at least has style and wit, and a lot of devious fun with its plot.
Sara Edwards, NBC News Deliciously evil, wickedly sexy. A wild, daring new spin on the classic tale of love and betrayal.
