Crueles Intenciones

Cruel Intentions (1999), i found out about this movie when i did a quiz on Facebook about movie related to my life, something like that. And the result came out to be this movie.
It surprised me cause i've never heard of it before & certainly caught my attention.
So i did get my hands on the, i just finished watching it aand (laughing) it's sick.
There's  'The Womanizer', 'The Bitch' & 'The Angel'.

Haa, i dont know why..i want to comment it but i cant think of any word to describe it without laughing which is really weird because the ending was a tragedy.
Umm, well i can tell you this, its pretty dirty minded movie. Shows much about the game of seduction, manipulation & betrayal. The Womanizer is the kind that makes you feel like you want to strangle him but at the same time you find it very hard to ignore his charms. The Bitch on the other hand is the real manipulative devil in the movie. While The Innocent is a virgin who wants to wait until she finds true love which makes her a great challenge for The Womanizer.
I gotta say, he's goood. I find that i love his voice, probably what i called a musical voice (Edward!). haha

Kathryn Merteuil (Sarah Michelle Gellar) and Sebastian Valmont (Ryan Phillippe) are step-siblings living in Manhattan. With their absent parents travelling in Europe, the wealthy pair have the family penthouse to themselves as they while away their summer break before beginning senior year at a private high school. Sebastian, bad-boy lothario, has apparently slept with all the girls in town and appears numb to it all. Kathryn, who appears to be the good girl class president, is actually far more amoral and malicious than Sebastian, but maintains appearances to the contrary. When she is dumped by her boyfriend, Court Reynolds, for the innocent Cecile Caldwell (Selma Blair), she schemes revenge by destroying Cecile's reputation. She challenges Sebastian to deflower Cecile and transform her into a tramp to humiliate Court. Sebastian isn't as interested as Cecile presents no challenge. The girl who has caught his attention is Annette Hargrove (Reese Witherspoon), the new headmaster's daughter. Annette had written an article for Seventeen Magazine on her plans to stay a virgin until she finds her one true love. Kathryn makes a wager. If Sebastian fails to lure Annette into bed before the summer is over, Kathryn gets his car. If he succeeds, Sebastian gets Kathryn, whom he wants anyway. Sebastian accepts the bet, but Annette turns out to be more than either of them bargained for. It started as a bet, then love started to bloom, came more conflicts which brought everything to tragedy. Finally ended with justice.

What i like about this movie is the fact that the two main characters (Ryan & Reese) were really together off screen & got married that year. Too bad they split after 7 years of marriage with 2 children. Still love them though.
