There she meets Jason Argyle, a former friend from her high school also attending the school. Jason gets a roommate, Patrick Bales. Jason and Patrick form a mean-spirited partnership of seducing and dumping various young women on campus. When both of their latest conquests bore them, Jason bets Patrick if they can seduce a particular newcomer, who is under the wing of Cassidy. But nothing is what it seems as a triangle of Cassidy, Jason, and Patrick forms with each one scheming to outwit the other. Written by matt-282

Amoral, Mean and Erotic Tale, But a Good Entertainment
12 April 2005 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In a college in Santa Barbara, the amoral and evil students Cassidy Merteuil (Kristina Anapau), Jason Argyle (Kerr Smith) and Patrick Bales (Nathan J. Wetherington) play a wicked game: Jason tries to seduce Sheila Wright (Natalie Ramsey), the girlfriend of his friend Michael Cattrall (Tom Parker); Patrick tries to seduce Alison Lebray (Melissa Yvonne Lewis), who is engaged. Their final intent is just a destructive game and nothing else. Then they decide to bet who will go first with Cassidy to the bed for one dollar. "Cruel Intentions 3" is another amoral, mean and erotic tale, using the same concept of "Cruel Intentions" and "Cruel Intentions 2", but without Kathryn Merteuil, performed by Sarah Michelle Gellar and Amy Adams respectively. Cassidy has the same lack of character of the original Kathryn, and is a good substitute for the original character. Having many plot points and beautiful actresses evolved in erotic scenes, this forgettable movie is a good entertainment. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Segundas Intenções 3" ("Second Intentions 3")
