Critic Reviews for Cruel Intentions 2
Edgy prequel about spoiled teens; lots of sex and cursing.
Not the original, but still a sexy, ridiculously enjoyable movie
Just when it starts to win viewers over as an endearing and romantic film, the twist ending destroys this effect.
Audience Reviews for Cruel Intentions 2
Nostalgia for the original inspired me to dig out the two sequels, even though I can remember seeing this 10 years ago and really not being impressed. Now I remember why. This takes place before the original when Sebastian has only just gone to live with Katherine and family. To be fair, Amy Adams does a decent job of channelling Sarah Michelle Gellar's bitchy Katherine, despite her physical differences, she even has the tone of voice down right. What falls flat here was that SMG's Katherine is secretly evil, and this one is more open about being a bitch. It doesn't work - the whole point of the first one was that Katherine lost what was most important to her - her reputation. I don't think anyone at all would be shocked to find Amy Adam's Katherine is a bitch on wheels. The plot, what there is of it, is pretty much a direct steal from the first, only with twists put in it just for shock value. Instead of principals daughter, Annette (Reese Witherspoon), we have principal's daughter Danielle (Sarah Thompson). This pretty much tacks up the genuine emotions in the original films and turns it into faux lesbian crap. There are no life lessons here. Heaven help me, I still have the 3rd one to get through...
Watched this to see if Amy Adams could do anything but bubble nice girl. Turns out she can be bubbly nice but scowly. This had one of the oddest turn arounds in movie history with the exception of maybe Perfume. The whole movie builds up a really weak and pointless plot, but in the last 20 minutes in suddenly decides to trash it all and try to make it sexy without making it worth while watching sexy. In the end all that it works for is destroyed and you are left there feeling the need to poop.
This comedy-drama captures the sexual chemistry and treachery that made Dangerous Liaisons so much fun and hotter with beautiful and sexy girls.
