NOT A GUILTY PLEASURE, JUST A PLEASURE
on January 3, 2017
I wasn't a teenager when this came out, and I'm really not one now, but I am an unashamed fan of this movie. A modern day teenage version of Dangerous Liaisons sounds like a horrible idea, but it works. Maybe not perfectly, but I find this movie so enjoyable, I don't care if the plot strains credulity.
Despite its age, it does not feel dated. The pop soundtrack is the one thing that places it in a certain timeframe, but outside that the look, fashions, and pop culture references don't scream 90's.
Decent to good acting from a still well known cast. Nice to look at, and a great soundtrack ( I bought the CD, too). I can't hear Bittersweet Symphony without thinking of this movie .
Just plain fun. Makes an excellent double feature with Wild Things .
