As of 2013, this is Bret Easton Ellis' favorite adaptations of his work. "My favorite movie out of the four was The Rules of Attraction. I thought it was the only one that captured the sensibility of the novel in a cinematic way. I know I'm sounding like a film critic on that, but I'm talking about that in an emotional way - as the writer of the novel. I watched that movie and thought they got it in a way that Mary Harron [director of American Psycho] didn't and Less Than Zero didn't." See more »

This is an awful movie and I feel like I wasted 110 minutes of my life for watching it. The characters are aweful, the Sean Bateman character is completely different in each seen and although one could say it is due to his mental illness, it doesn't work. The movie tried to feed off of the popularity of American Psycho (which was their first mistake, because although it was good, it could not fuel a sequel with completely different characters). I feel sick just thinking about this movie. And previous reviews were correct in discussing how pretentious this movie was.
All I have to say is: DO NOT WATCH THIS MOVIE!!!!!!!!!
