Oh, your dog can sit? That's nice. This dog can sit, stay, come, back up, come again, back up again, sit again, lay down, come, stay, turn, turn again, look away, take a sneak peek, back up, get closer, back up, get closer, touch the toy but not get the toy and, oh Just Count. Like, Count Numbers. Do Math. This dog, a cattle dog named Jumpy, is mind-boggling smart. He's trained by Omar Von Muller, who trained Uggie, the dog from The Artist and Water for Elephants, and Backup from Veronica Mars (real name, Gordo).

The messed-up machinations of bored, oversexed stepsiblings Kathryn Merteuil and Sebastian Valmont aren’t quite as shocking in 2014 as they were when Cruel Intentions was released on March 5, 1999. (Blame Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, and a zillion other glitzy/scandalous imitators.)
