Episode Summary

EDIT
Cruel Intentions 2: Manchester Prep
AIRED:
Footage from Manchester Prep was taken and spliced with new footage to make the Prequel of Cruel Intentions. The movie was okay, but the series was way-y better. The Movie is a prequel to the feature movie (starring Ryan, Sarah, etc.) and shows how Sebastian tries to fight temptation, but gives in at the last second. Meet Sebastian Valmont, who just got kicked out of his old high school from his Principal. His Principal, Mr. Freeman vows to Sebastian, with a file like that (must have been really bad, assuming drugs, sex, vandalism, etc.) he is will never get into a new school. Sebastian comments on Mr. Freeman's wife, and asks him how she is doing. Mr. Freeman tells Sebastian, she is fine, and sends him off. Mr. Freeman immediately gets a call from Mrs. Freeman and tells him to turn to one of the pages in the year book. Apparently Sebastian's goodbye present was a naked photo of Mrs. Freeman published in the yearbook. Mr. Freeman yells at Sebastian at the window, as he catches a taxi to New York. Sebastian is ready to get a fresh new start. Sebastian meets his new rich life, as he finds out his step mother owns a whole building. He meets up with his father, who he introduces Sebastian to his step mother, Tiffany Merteuil-Valmont. After Tiffany makes a great impression after Sebastian tries to be naughty around her (Sebastian comments how precious her pussy cat is, while it is sitting on her lap. She strikes back with "Would you like to pet her?") Sebastian then meets Kathryn, his step sister. After outdoing her with their Steinway piano, and correcting her SAT words at dinner, Sebastian has yet to see what she is capable of. While showering, Kathryn interrupts Sebastian, and makes herself an impression, to stay out of her way. Fast forward to school. Outside the Headmaster's office, Sebastian calls a girl, who is just doing some work, beautiful. She is shocked at first, but says thank you. Sebastian comments on how the Headmaster is a joke, before being called his office. Sebastian meets Headmaster Sherman (Headmaster Hargrove in the cancelled series) and Headmaster Sherman calls Sebastian's files impressive after having high marks (4.0 G.P.A., honor clubs, etc.) but it's too impressive to his standard. Then the girl from the office walks in and kisses the Headmaster. Sebastian is shocked at first but he finds out that the girl was actually the Headmaster's daughter, named Danielle. Meanwhile with Kathryn, she finds out she has gym and ballet, the two classes she hates. She hunts down the Assistant Headmaster named Bueller, and threatens to expose their love affair. He tells her he will change her schedule and she walks away like an innocent angel. Sebastian meets Danielle for a second time in one of his classes. When Danielle and Sebastian have a heated argument on Dr. Jekyll, and Mr. Hyde, the teacher sides with Sebastian (in a good way). After school, Sebastian catches Danielle working at a used book store and charms the owner to let Danielle off for a cup of Joe. Kathryn's activities after school does not include a job, but a club called the "Manchester Prep Tribunal." We find out that the Tribunal basically destroys lives of other students and run the school. It's a new school year, so the Tribunal goes over all the new students. They review on a girl named Cherie Crayman (Cecile Caldwell in the series), and finds out she is really, really stupid, but extremely rich. Kathryn takes Cherie as her own project to turn her into the school's slut. Kathryn brings Cherie to a club, and gives her Iced Teas, which are from Long Island. A guy, who Kathryn knows, Court Reynolds, approaches Cherie and Kathryn. Kathryn forces Cherie into the bathroom and tells Cherie that Court has an interest in her. Cherie asks what to do, and Kathryn tells her, "You should let him fuck you!" (In the series, she actually says "You should let him fill you up!"). Cherie reveals she hasn't even kissed a guy before, but Kathryn has another idea. Back into the club, Kathryn explains to Cherie, how to kiss using Court as an example. Cherie and Court kiss, and Kathryn explains how to french kiss. Just when Cherie's lips are about to press onto Courts, she vomits onto his pants (which BTW is $300 dollars). He storms off, and Cherie hugs Kathryn in disappointment. Back at their home, Sebastian talks to Danielle on the phone, surprising her, since she didn't give her number. They talk about for an hour before he hangs up after she asks to take is slow. Kathryn just got up and just caught the minutes before the act ended. But he reveals to Kathryn he is smarter than her, and tells her she needs to throw up after having that huge salad and kicks her out. While taking a shower again, Sebastian is interrupted by kissing cousins, after Kathryn sent them in. They reveal to him, how bad the school actually is ("If you don't snort it, SUCK it"). Back at school, we find out Kathryn isn't actually excused from gym from a teacher. She tries to hit on him, but it doesn't work. She storms off and the teacher notices a MALE student walking by. He asks to fix his tie... Kathryn is ultra pissed and goes back to the Assistant Headmaster. She gives him sex, in return to take her off the gym/ballet classes for good. Of course, the Assistant Headmaster chooses to have sex with Kathryn. Meanwhile talking to Danielle, Cherie notices something ringing in her bag. Danielle takes out a cell phone, which is apparently from Sebastian. Cherie comments on how sweet Sebastian is, and pushes Danielle to go for it. Sebastian tells Danielle to meet him down stairs in which she does. By his requests, she closes her eyes and gets a kiss on the lips by him. Danielle freaks out on this, and storms off, after throwing the cell phone at him. We later find out that was Danielle's first kiss and wanted it special, then freaked out. Back with Kathryn, she gets a loud clear message from Cherie, saying that their sleep over will work out over the weekend, after Cherie's mother wanting to talk to Kathryn's mother. When then find out that in the world of high class, charity work is a way for the women to socialize. Apparently, Tiffany has been trying to get funds for the new Manchester Prep school library and wants Cherie mother, Bunny, for "help" in contributing $20,000,00 dollars. It actually happens but the school chooses to name it after the "Crayman" rather than "Merteuil" after their large contribution. We then find out that Sebastian's dad is having an affair and is in trouble after being handcuffed. He goes back home and only Kathryn catches this. Thinking he will get busted from Kathryn, he tries to explain but gets cut off, after he gets some great advice on how to keep Tiffany happy. Kathryn wants this family and doesn't mind to push Edward in the right direction. She then asks, "Who's your favorite daughter?" he responds, "You are." and she kisses him on the cheek before leaving. The next day, Kathryn takes Cherie out on for horse back riding lessons. After great pleasure with the saddle, Cherie has an orgasm on the horse, and tells Kathryn now she knows why girls like horse back riding. Meanwhile with Sebastian, he is out on a little date with Danielle. She teases him a bit, after saying she is tired being the good girl. She massages his crotch, and just when she is about to go down on him (In a public park!) her phone rings. It's her father. She has to go. She leaves Sebastian, with his hard on still raging in his pants. While shopping, Kathryn gets a visit from Blaine, who apparently got Sebastian's original file back. Fast-forward to night, just when Sebastian is about to see Danielle, Kathryn walks into his room. She has almost dominatrix/leather/blackish underwear on. She asks to have him. He gives in for a moment, but resisted temptation and leaves to see Danielle. Kathryn then calls Danielle...... Sebastian arrives at Danielle's home, and tries to confess his love to her. She tells him no, then Kathryn walks out of Danielle's closet. We find out the good Danielle is just an act, and she is actually bad. Danielle and Kathryn proceeds to kiss and Danielle tell him "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em." And so he does! They all have a threesome together. It's a bright new day, while riding in their limo, Sebastian opens a gift from Danielle. It's a journal... for something to right about. We then see the limo almost running over Cherie. The driver apologizes about her broken bike, and Sebastian (To our surprise, whom she forgot!) offers her a ride. The driver tosses the bike aside, and Sebastian fiddles with his new camera. He tells Cherie it's too bad she can't be sexy so he can take her picture. She replies "I can be sexy!" and starts to take off her coat and starts to pose for him. The limo moves on, and in the front seat, we hear Sebastian and Cherie having sex, while Kathryn and Danielle listen on to them. THE END!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (7)

    • Notice how SHORT Robin Dunne's hair is at the end of the movie compairing to the first part.

    • At the end of the movie, how can Cherie not remember Sebastian?

    • When Cecile tells Kathryn it's okay for their mothers to socialize. The day before, Tiffany was on a trip. Assuming it's still morning, Tiffany wouldn't be home yet.

    • The Assistant Headmaster has a vote remark, just when Kathryn allows him to have sex with her. This footage is actually from the second episode. The plotline around the second episode was about how he went with Kathryn's original wishes to vote a student, Blaine Tuttle, out of school, after being caught with drugs.

    • Cecile comments about the new Hanson CD, but it was released long ago.

    • Bad editing. Sebastian tells Tiffany and Kathryn he is failing gym because of fencing. No footage was shown (although it was in episode 2) of Sebastian being in gym class in any part of the movie.

    • In Assistant Steve Mueller's office, he says "Hargrove" which was an original reference to the Headmaster (in the 2nd episode). They forgot to change the line to "Sherman" in the movie, but since no episodes made it to air, you could make your own accusations on who is "Hargrove" (a teacher, etc.).

  • QUOTES (2)

  • NOTES (7)

    • If you read the synopsis, and thinks it's kind of weird, it's not. That how the movie went, if you watched the three produced episodes. They went back and forth and made it look sort of funny.

    • Along with the edits, here are some of the stuff that was added/changed from the original show:
      Kathryn says mess shirts instead of a GAP remark (From the show).
      Cherie says "Bubble gum" instead of Ju-Ju fruit (From the show), just when Cherie spits the gum in Kathryn's hair.
      The teacher discussion in the classroom. The whole dialogue that the teacher is talking is actually redubbed; That wasn't the original teacher's voice from the show.
      Kama Sutra pictures are shown; It wasn't originally shown in the show.
      Kathryn says "Sit the fuck down!" when she pulled Cherie down in the limo; In the show, she said nothing.
      Sebastian makes a "Gozilla" remark when Min-Lin goes crazy after he spills his breakfast; In the show, he was actually kind to her and didn't say any remark.
      Sebastian calls his mother (This might of been original footage from the show but of been removed due to "time")
      When the guy pushes Cherie when she is watching Danielle and Sebastian getting romantic (with the cell phones) he says a couple of lines; In the show he had no lines.
      Their was a "M*A*S*H" remark in the movie; The show had no "M*A*S*H" remark.
      Kathryn says "You should let him fuck you" in the ladies room; In the show she said "You should let him fill you up."
      In the show Cecile is choking from her Ju-Ju Fruit, Annette said "You're going to be alright, Cecile" but this was left out in The TV Movie.
      Phone voices were added in Edward's phone call with his "accountant."
      Kathryn's line from "Lovely" after being pushed into the mud was originally "To Be Continued..." on the show because it was the episode two's original ending.

    • Like the feature movie, Cruel Intentions 2 has a new score that differ than the TV Series.

    • Rough time frame of 1:11:30 - 1:14:05 has new scenes when is the very first time we see Kathryn say "Danielle" without it being redubbed.

    • Click on individual episode to see the time frame episode analysis for which footage was used for the movie.

    • The movie has a new dirtier tone. The original Manchester Prep series did not contain most of the "dirty" dialouges (f-words, sexual moans, nudity) you can easily tell which lines were dubbed since the lines obviously sounds fake if you notice.

    • When any of the characters say "Cherie", "Danelle", "Crayman", "Sherman" they were all redub lines of the "Cecile", "Annette", "Caldwell", "Hargrove."

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Sebastian: "Dawson's creek show."
      Robin Dunne guest starred at A.J. in Dawson's Creek, and was probably filming some episodes around that time, when they were doing re-shoots for the movie.

    • Sebastian: "God, We sound like a cancelled TV show."
      What a fun reference to the show, Manchester Prep, because it's exactly what happened.
