9/10
15 November 2000 | by lelegumineuxSee all my reviews

A very nice film to watch. The plot is quickly set up and from there on the story runs continuously without stopping. I enjoyed it very much and the movie was both funny and entertaining. Reese Witherspoon is as attractive as ever and performs very well. I especially liked some of the dialogues. If, like me, you've enjoyed Overnight Delivery then you should enjoy "Cruel Intentions". Overall 9/10.
