The movie's cinematography, set design, and costume design are all extremely elegant, and the beautiful young actors are shown off to maximum effect, like expensively bred horses.

The initial feel of Cruel Intentions is so audacious that the comedown is truly a letdown.

The teen-age target audience will probably gobble Cruel Intentions right up, but for me this film boarders on creepy.
