Camden College. Sean Bateman is the younger brother of depraved Wall Street broker Patrick Bateman. He's also a drug dealer who owes a lot of money to "fellow" dealer Rupert Guest, as well as a well-known womanizer, for he sleeps with nearly half of the female population on campus. Lauren Hynde is, technically, a virgin. She's saving herself for her shallow boyfriend, Victor Johnson, who's left the States to backpack across Europe. Her slutty roommate, Lara, has the hots for Victor as well. Paul Denton, who used to date Lauren, is openly bisexual and attracted to Mitchell Allen, who's dating Candice to prove to Paul that he's not gay. Sean loves Lauren. Paul loves Sean. And Lauren may love Sean. Written by
Director Roger Avary does not have a cameo in this film (some people falsely believe he appears at the bus stop), but he did cast someone to play himself. He has stated that the background character Dumb Guy From LA, played by Adam Robitel, is meant to be him. The character even wears Roger Avary's hat from his own college days. See more »

I haven't read all of the users' comments, but the ones I HAVE read seem to not quite get the point of the film. IT'S AN A-D-A-P-T-A-T-I-O-N. Of a book. Not to mention the mystery behind it: Bret Easton Ellis is a brilliant writer, yet all the movie adaptations suck mighty. I personally was laughing all the way through it (except of course during the bathtub scene which I thought was gruesomely fantastic in its portrayal). So even if you didn't get it, at least it was funny. I was thrilled during the addition of Mini-Glamorama, and just to keep everyone on the right track, Sean Bateman is not the "college version" of the American Psycho narrator; if he was, his name would've been Patrick Bateman, Christian Bale's character in the movie. Sean is Patrick's little brother; there was supposed to be a scene where Van Der Beek calls Bale and Bale has a severed head in his hand on the other end, but Bale wasn't available. If you hated it, and it wasn't for you, just think: You could've seen the NC-17 version. Otherwise, don't knock the "shallowness" and "emptiness" of the characters or the actors please; that's not what it was about, and it's not what the book intended. Bret Easton Ellis is a genius.
