living in: cruel intentions

by amym

Before there was Gossip Girl, there was Cruel Intentions. And before there was Cruel Intentions, there was Dangerous Liaisons. A smutty 19 90s adaption of a heavy hitting classic, the cast emanates a blinding glow of teen goodness. With Sarah Michelle Geller, Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Phillipe, Selma Blair and that guy who will be forever known as simply Pacey– you can’t really go wrong. The movie qualifies as borderline sex-ed for the younger set, so hire a sitter and watch away.   –Amy Merrick

The draw of watching rich teens run amok is hard to fight. Even if it’s a turn to watch a accident on the highway instinct, sometimes it’s best to indulge. The WASPy privilege of Catherine and co in Cruel Intentions is mesmerizing and even thought we count our blessings not be a part of her wicked ways, adding some blueblood style to our daily lives would elevate the even mundane. Start small and save the jag for extra credit.
