Storyline

Rachael Newman has developed an interest for murders after she encountered psychopath Patrick Bateman. To further study the subject, she enrolls at the university department for Behavioural and Social Sciences, under the expert leadership of former FBI agent Robert Starkman. Very certain about herself, Rachael has one single goal: to become class assistant. It's a prestigious job as having that position will almost guarantee employment at the FBI. But becoming class assistant is no easy task to accomplish, as the first trouble arises when secretary Gerty Fleck decides she is too young for it. And Gerty Fleck won't be the only obstacle. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Quotes

[first lines]
Rachael Newman: [narrating] Clara was my babysitter. I was only 12 years old. Naive, and somewhat trusting. But all that was about to change. You know how some babysitters take you to the movies, or rollerblading in the park? Mine brought me along on a date with a serial killer. Patrick Bateman. Not my idea of a romantic evening. God, I mean look at her. All drugged-up and tied to a chair. I knew we should have gone to the movies.
Rachael Newman: At first I was scared. I wanted to get out of there as fast as I ...

DON'T get all the bad reviews
25 August 2011 | by osvazasSee all my reviews

The film has received a lot of negative reviews what comes as a really surprise to me. OK, it wasn't really a sequel to American psycho, it was a movie on it's own. The only thing the both have in common is the title. Other than that, it should've been judged as a completely different film, that gave a completely different serial-killer standpoint. As far as the original with Christian Bale, it was a masterpiece, mind-blowing performance, truly a classic. However, when people expect the very same thing, they get disappointed, because it's nothing like that at all.

The film doesn't take itself too seriously, it's neither a horror film nor twisted psychological flick. It takes an easy and ironical approach as well as it contains a lot of black-comedy elements. Mila Kunis gives a great performance as a cold, callous, obsessed serial killer, who is going to do anything it takes to achieve her goals. For sure, it's not an Oscar-worthy performance, however it was convincing and given her age, she really pulled it off. Now she's on her way to become a big thing.

To wrap up, I would recommend to watch this flick with a clear head, be uncommitted and don't expect the same kind of atmosphere and attitude as the first one, since it has no connection as far as genre and representation goes.
