Storyline

Adrien Williams enters the "in crowd" when she is hired by a posh East Coast country club and befriended by Brittany Foster, the charismatic leader of a clique of wealthy college students who are home for the summer. Brittany takes Adrien under her wing, attempts to show her the benefits of the good life and introduces her to other members of her inner circle, including the object of Brittany's affection, tennis pro Matt Curtis. When Matt shows an interest in Adrien, Brittany begins to reveal her dark side and Adrien slowly starts to learn that Brittany and her pack of friends will do anything to protect their circle and the dark secrets they harbor.

Alternate Versions

The European Special Edition DVD is 12 minutes longer than the original version of the movie which was released in theaters and in the American DVD/video, and contains several scenes which were originally cut for nudity, sex or violence (so the movie could obtain a 'PG13' rating). The four main scenes in the Euro edition that are not in the original version are:
  • 1. A sex scene between Brittany (Susan Ward) and the doctor (Daniel Hugh Kelly). Susan Ward strips fully nude, the doctor performs oral sex on her, then they have sex.
  • 2. A lesbian sex scene between Brittany (Susan Ward) and Kelly (Laurie Fortier). Susan strips Laurie to her underwear and performs oral sex on her, before murdering her.
  • 3. A topless scene where Brittany (Susan Ward) goes to Adrien's (Lori Heuring) room to change her shirt. The two girls have a conversation while Susan Ward is topless, then she is seen getting dressed.
  • 4. A longer and more violent version of the catfight scene between Brittany (Susan Ward) and Adrien (Lori Heuring).

A Guilty Pleasure
18 January 2010 | by crooked_spoonsSee all my reviews

The In Crowd is your basic teen thriller with lots of trashy girls and bad lines & acting and a mediocre script, but it was tolerable. Actually, it was more than tolerable, it was actually fairly good, not the acting, by any stretch of the imagination, but it served its purpose. In my opinion, it's a great movie to watch on a slow/rainy weekend evening. I went into this film with little to no expectations and ended up being pleasantly surprised. I was sure by the reviews that it would be terrible, instead I found myself thoroughly satisfied. While TIC is no "Cruel Intentions", it's of the same genre. Spoiled rich kids, doing bad things to each other and sucking in the lowly outsider in the process.

"In Crowd" has the same atmosphere and draw as any soap opera today, but the cheesy drama of soaps seems to translate well to a certain niche, but it DOES have a niche. Expect nothing more than a two hour version of "All My Children" and you won't end this film angry. I say give it a chance. If anything it'll end up on your guilty pleasures list.
