Trivia

On the DVD, there are 'Talent Files' for each of the four main actors (Robin Dunne, Amy Adams, Sarah Thompson, and Keri Lynn Pratt). Keri Lynn Pratt played 'Cherie Claymon', but in her file, it lists her character as 'Cecile Caldwell'. Cecile Caldwell doesn't appear in this film. She is played by Selma Blair in the original Cruel Intentions (1999), which takes place years after this film. However, Cecile and Cherie both have a few things in common: they are both daughters of socialites; ditzy; virgins when they start at Manchester; and both lose their virginity while attending there.

Alternate Versions

The original pilot episode and most of the first two episodes of the original shot footage were included in the movie but here are the major differences from the TV series to actual movie:
  • Sarah Thompson's character was actually called Annette Hargrove but is now called Danielle Sherman.
  • Keri Lynn Pratt's character was actually called Cecile Caldwell, but is now called Cherie Crayman.
  • "TV friendly" dialog was originally used instead of what is currently present.
  • A different score and soundtrack was used.
  • Certain sub-plots (More about secret Manchester Prep tribunal, characters Penny Cartwright, Todd Michaels, Millicent Davies, Nigel Danby, etc.) were dropped from the plot completely focusing on the Merteuil/Valmont family completely.
  • 10 minutes of newly added footage which was shot in 2000, including the shower sex scene with the twins, and the twist ending.

Call me Mr. Easily Pleased, but I liked it.
16 June 2008 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

Take my advice: before viewing Cruel Intentions 2, watch Disney's Enchanted. After falling in love with Amy Adams as the sweet, pure and innocent Princess Giselle, watching her play a rich-bitch schoolgirl slut is somehow so much more satisfying. It seems so wrong, yet so right!

Manchester Prep, a prequel to Cruel Intentions, stars the scrummy Ms.Adams as Kathryn, wicked step-sister to Sebastian (Robin Dunne), a student with a chequered past who tries to turn over a new leaf when he falls for the headmaster's daughter Danielle (Sarah Thompson). Kathryn, whose passion is to cause trouble whenever possible, attempts to scupper Sebastian's new relationship, whilst also doing her best to corrupt pretty and naive virgin Cherie (Keri Lynn Pratt).

Whereas the original Cruel Intentions was, with its cast of trendy Hollywood stars, a calculated attempt to be cool, savvy and oh-so-clever, Manchester Prep is a trashy, immature, and totally unsophisticated movie that, by being far less pretentious, manages to be just as entertaining as, if not more than, the first.

Adams is easily a match for Sarah Michelle Gellar (Kathryn in Cruel Intentions), being both convincingly cruel and very sexy; Thompson is great as the pretty poor girl of the school who captures Sebastian's heart; and Keri Lynn Pratt is charming as the Manchester Prep virgin who learns why riding horses is so popular with young women. Hats off also to Annie Sorell and Alicia Lorén, who are unforgettable as Sebastian's horny, brunette shower buddies (female nudity in a teen drama has rarely been so gratuitous!).

Manchester Prep might not be innovative groundbreaking cinema, but it sure is fun. Not quite an 8/10, but a pretty high 7.
