Trivia

This film was originally a TV series based on Cruel Intentions (1999) titled "Manchester Prep" with three hour-long episodes filmed: the pilot (#1.1), Pretty in Plaid (#1.2), and Disfunction Junction (#1.3). They were scheduled to premiere on the Fox network in September 1999, but the show was canceled before any of the episodes aired. The scene where Cherie has orgasms on the horse in Episode #1.3 reportedly outraged Fox chairman Rupert Murdoch. New explicit scenes and dialogue were added to footage from the pilot and the first two episodes to make this film. The plot was reworked to serve as a prequel to Cruel Intentions rather than a retelling. See more »

Quotes

[after catching the servents playing poker with Sebastian]
Kathryn: Get out, all of you! And you can be damn sure that my mother's going to hear about this when she gets back.
Sebastian: No she won't.
Kathryn: What did you say?
Sebastian: I said you're not telling anyone about this. This was my idea. I ordered them to play cards.
Kathryn: And to drink Mother's prized 1939 Neuf du Pape?
Sebastian: Great year. Blitzkrieg, wasn't it?

Alternate Versions

The original pilot episode and most of the first two episodes of the original shot footage were included in the movie but here are the major differences from the TV series to actual movie:
  • Sarah Thompson's character was actually called Annette Hargrove but is now called Danielle Sherman.
  • Keri Lynn Pratt's character was actually called Cecile Caldwell, but is now called Cherie Crayman.
  • "TV friendly" dialog was originally used instead of what is currently present.
  • A different score and soundtrack was used.
  • Certain sub-plots (More about secret Manchester Prep tribunal, characters Penny Cartwright, Todd Michaels, Millicent Davies, Nigel Danby, etc.) were dropped from the plot completely focusing on the Merteuil/Valmont family completely.
  • 10 minutes of newly added footage which was shot in 2000, including the shower sex scene with the twins, and the twist ending.

Not impressed
2 May 2007 | by dracosbabe88See all my reviews

They had such potential for this movie and they completely fall flat. In the first Cruel Intentions, we are left wondering what motivated the lead characters to become the way they are and act the way they do. There is almost NO character development whatsoever in this prequel. It's actually a very sad story but this film did nothing for me. It was as if they left out good writing in place of unneeded f-words. And the end makes absolutely no sense and doesn't explain anything. The writing was just terrible. Another thing that bothered me was that they used at lease 3 of the EXACT SAME lines that were in the original. Such as "down boy", or the kissing scene, and a few others I can't remember. I was not impressed at all by Robin's acting, but Amy did a great job. That's about the only thing that reconciled this movie.
