Dangerous Liaisons among rich NYC teens.

What's both depressing and impressive about Cruel Intentions is the profound misanthropy of its meaning.

You won't be able to resist the film's ribaldry and cynicism. Kids these days!

The film's cheat ending aside, this arch, ridiculous movie heaves, sweats and steams, and for the most part, it delivers what its title promises.

Lascivious blackmailers and inveterate immoralists, these characters behave despicably, but the movie affects a tone of urbane detachment which puts sex in its proper perspective.

Kumble doesn't dumb down the themes of the novel too much, he just gives them a refreshing, flashy feel Dawson's Creek-style.

The movie as a whole sometimes pushes its own limits and, truth be said, it is pretty sleazy at times. But, it's enjoyable in a trashy, Wild Things kind of way.
