Guilty Pleasure
14 October 2000 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that you'll hate yourself for liking. It's another teen update of a classic story, in this case, Dangerous Liasons. Good acting, competent direction, nice cinematography, and an excellent soundtrack make this one entertaining viewing. 6.5/10.
