After his precocious behavior has gotten him bounced out of one more in a string of exclusive private schools, 16-year old Sebastian Valmont (Dunne) has arrived in New York City to live with his father and stepmother. The cunning and handsome Sebastian may have met his match, however in his equallymanipulative and beautiful stepsister Kathryn Merteuil (Amy Adams). As Sebastian arrives for his first day at Manchester Prep, the exclusive school where Kathryn is student body president, he realizes that he'll have to do his best if he's to survive in the cutthroat world of the young and privileged.

Cruel Intentions 2: Manchester Prep seems like a cheapened form of Cruel Intentions. The first was classy, bold, and stylish. The second was crass, obnoxious and just bad.
Sebastian seems a little more sympathetic in this version (we actually get to see the parents). He is just a very smart kid with a promiscuous father. He is not the cultured snob of Cruel Intentions. His step-sister Kathryn is now a spoiled brat who seems somewhat of a klutz at trying to be cultured. This is definitely a step down from Gellar's Privileged B-tch of the first movie.
The film is full of the swearing and nudity that were nicely absent from the first. One can feel that nudity and swearing were the main reason for this film being made. The idea that it was to kick off a Manchester Prep series would be disappointing as the movies ideas would not translate to the more restricted television format (although the original CI might have made it).
The movie's ending makes little sense (like much of the movie) and any sympathy we might have had for Sebastian is tossed out the window.
This movie stunk worse than a New York subway car in August without any air conditioning. You thought the lesbian kiss scene in the first movie was a little over the top? Man, you ain't seen nothing yet.
Cruel Intentions 2 is really nothing but a soft-porn B-movie. The first movie was a "modern retelling" of the "classic" story Dangerous Liaisons. Cruel Intentions 2 is a "prequel" that leaves almost no taboo unexplored. Since this is a "family" site, I will not go into any graphic detail here. Suffice it to say that virgin eyes should not behold what transpires in this movie (Scenes like an innocent freshman girl getting aroused while learning to ride a horse, twins in a shower, Valmont's stepmother giving him a massage...you get the idea).
Anyway, consider this a public service announcement: beware if you turn on your tv and are flipping through the cable channels and you come across a little movie called CRUEL INTENTIONS 2. Or if you see this on your videostore shelf. Or if you were thinking of buying this film. The production values and the acting and the story are nowhere near as good as the original. You might find some of the nudity and erotic content enjoyable if you're looking for that sort of thing, but be careful. The actors look EXTREMELY young. You have been warned.
