Camden College. Sean Bateman is the younger brother of depraved Wall Street broker Patrick Bateman. He's also a drug dealer who owes a lot of money to "fellow" dealer Rupert Guest, as well as a well-known womanizer, for he sleeps with nearly half of the female population on campus. Lauren Hynde is, technically, a virgin. She's saving herself for her shallow boyfriend, Victor Johnson, who's left the States to backpack across Europe. Her slutty roommate, Lara, has the hots for Victor as well. Paul Denton, who used to date Lauren, is openly bisexual and attracted to Mitchell Allen, who's dating Candice to prove to Paul that he's not gay. Sean loves Lauren. Paul loves Sean. And Lauren may love Sean.Written by

and it's a story that might bore you, but you don't have to listen, because I always knew it was going to be like that.

The credits run backwards, starting with the disclaimer ("Any similarity to persons living or dead...") and rolling upwards to end with the cast. See more »
The version released on video/DVD in the UK was heavily cut (even with an 18 cert) for the suicide sequence:
To obtain this category cuts of 1m 34s were required., some or all of these cuts were substitutions. The cuts were Compulsory.
A cut was required to a scene in which a teenage girl slits her wrists, on the grounds that the technique used is not widely known and is potentially more likely to result in death than the more common method, in line with the Video Recordings Act 1984, and BBFC Guidelines and Policy
A Great Film exploring the human persona through beautiful cinematography
Despite what any "critic" may say of this amazing film, "The Rules of Attraction" is a very intelligent and creative piece of work. First off, the cinematography is AMAZING, from the transitions to the angles to the texture and film used, this picture looks brilliant! The perfectly presented plot and story line beautifully manifests itself to the viewer through cunning writing and wonderful dialogue. The acting is superb, Van der Beek delivers and Sossman is quite simply brilliant. I highly recommend this film to everybody as I'm sure everybody will enjoy it unless they lack the common sense of a teenager, which means that everybody should get it... A+! -Taylor
