Product Description

Sarah Michelle Gellar (I Know What You Did Last Summer, Scream 2, TV's Buffy The Vampire Slayer) and Ryan Phillippe (I Know What You Did Last Summer, 54) 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, Can't Hardly Wait, Zoe, Duncan, Jack & Jane), 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, Pleasantville, The Man In The Moon). If he fails, Kathryn gets his most prized possession, but if hesucceeds, 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.

This modern-day teen update of Les Liaisons Dangereuses suffered at the hands of both critics and moviegoers thanks to its sumptuous ad campaign, which hyped the film as an arch, highly sexual, faux-serious drama (not unlike the successful, Oscar-nominated Dangerous Liaisons). In fact, this intermittently successful sudser plays like high comedy for its first two-thirds, as its two evil heroes, rich stepsiblings Kathryn (Sarah Michelle Gellar) and Sebastian (Ryan Phillippe), blithely ruin lives and reputations with hearts as black as coal. Kathryn wants revenge on a boyfriend who dumped her, so she befriends his new intended, the gawky Cecile (Selma Blair), and gets Sebastian to deflower the innocent virgin. The meat of the game, though, lies in Sebastian's seduction of good girl Annette (a down-to-earth Reese Witherspoon), who's written a nationally published essay entitled "Why I Choose to Wait." If he fails, Kathryn gets his precious vintage convertible; if he wins, he gets Kathryn-–in the sack. When the movie sticks to the merry ruination of Kathryn and Sebastian's pawns, it's highly enjoyable: Gellar in particular is a two-faced manipulator extraordinaire, and Phillippe, usually a black hole, manages some fun as a hipster Eurotrash stud. Most pleasantly surprising of all is Witherspoon, who puts a remarkably self-assured spin on a character usually considered vulnerable and tortured (see Michelle Pfeiffer in Dangerous Liaisons). Unfortunately, writer-director Roger Kumble undermines everything he's built up with a false ending that's true to neither the reconceived characters nor the original story--revenge is a dish best served cold, not cooked up with unnecessary plot twists. --Mark Englehart

The plot here is varied enough to make this film interesting. Ryan Phillipe and Sara Gellar are stepbrother and sister via the marriage of their parents, no blood relationship. Both are clever, cynical, teenage users and manipulators. Note that this is very crude business, suggesting every possible form of sexuality. Eventually, Ryan takes a bet from Sara to seduce prurient Reece Witherspoon. Of course, he falls in love with Reece. It may be said that physically, Sara is quite a stunning beauty in this film. This makes it improbable when Ryan spurns her when she offers herself to him, because he is smitten by Reece. Ryan is tragically killed and Sara seems to come out on top, but the tables are turned on her at the end. Many will find the closing musical theme "Bittersweet Symphony" by the Verve, engaging.

Review:
Ah, the 90s, the teen flicks of my youth. I Know What You Did Last Summer, The Craft, Scream, Wild Things, and Cruel Intentions. Most of which only recycle the tried formula of their respective genres. For this movie, it's been a long time since I saw it (back when VHS was still big). After all those years, it's not the best of movies. A very forgettable effort but still enjoyable for its corny spirit and sometimes bland acting (Ryan Philippe felt like a washed off sponge, but we all had to start somewhere). The real part that got me back then was between Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair (yes, that part). Even though the movie is very predictable, what few heart it has makes up for some of it's nihilistic approach in characterization.

Film:
Sebastian (Ryan Philippe) collects female like a sportsman collects trophies. The only woman he really wants is his step-sister Kathryn (Sarah Michelle Gellar). They place a bet involving the most outrageous idea: Sebastian has to corrupt and bed Annette (Reese Witherspoon).

Audio:
A very serviceable track, the dialog is crisp, easy to hear and the music is very well balanced.

Video:
As far as DVD go, this is a good enough transfer. It's nothing to write home about but it gets the job done.

Extras:
A nice array of supplemental material is offered: an audio commentary, deleted scenes, two featurettes, music videos, trailer and filmographies.

I wanted to buy this movie because I had just heard about actress Sarah Michelle Gellar, I knew her by name before but never happened to see any of her movies or TV series before. I've read that the steamy scenes between her and actress Selma Blair made this something of a cult movie; I was also very curious to see the work of director/writer Roger Kumble. There is currently about a dozen movies made from the 18th Century novel "Les Liaisons Dangereuses", two of the most famous are Milos Forman's "Valmont" made in 1988 and Stephen Frear's "Dangerous Liaisons" made in 1989, who won 3 Oscars basically for the costumes and the writing. In my opinion there were problems who made these two movies doomed from the very beginning, no matter how good the costumes and sets are someone get bored very rapidly of seeing only aristocrats living their daily life, especially when the dialog is complicated and hard to follow. Some positive point could always be given for the excellent music. Personally I really think the story is confusing in all three versions, in "Cruel Intentions" it's probably the main flaw of the movie, but it's still much clearer than the other versions and the story is understandable, those who don't understand everything the first time could always watch it again. The idea who made the movie excellent is certainly to adapt the action to modern 20th century where it's easy to put sexual overtones among other things, and making it a rich teenagers story add something. I couldn't think of better persons to play in it than Ryan Phillippe, Selma Blair, Reese Witherspoon and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Amazon.Read more ›

This is a good movie that anyone could watch. so unlike what Chris Kibber said, "This is clearly made for teens who really, really, really, wish they were cool. Here's a hint: if you are watching [stuff] like this you are not cool. The cool people are out doing stuff while you sit in front of your TV watching Dawson's Creek and wondering why you are getting heavier."
I mean who is he to say what is or what isnt cool. if he thought the movie was bad then why is he wasting his time writing here. so dont believe his review.The movie is about Katherine who is unconfident in herself and finds enjoyment in other peoples pain and her step brother Sebastian who has a repuation of sleeping with numerous girls; they make a bet that if Sebastian sleeps with Annette (the virgin)that he can have Katherine but if he loses then Katherine gets his car. Then comes innocent Cecile where she is played the fool but then gets her reward. by the end of the movie...well you go see it and you'll know the ending. lol hope i helped you and you are all COOL!
