Cruel Intentions script
Synopsis: Annette (Reese Witherspoon) unwittingly becomes a pawn in Sebastian's (Ryan Phillippe) and Kathryn's (Sarah Michelle Gellar) deliciously diabolical wager of sexual conquest when she writes an article in Seventeen Magazine about how she intends to stay pure until she marries her boyfriend. However, Sebastian gets more than he bargained for as he attempts to woo Annette into his bed.

1 EXT. MANHATTAN SKYLINE - DAY 1

We circle around the island of Manhattan moving closer and

closer till we're looking down on Fifth Avenue. As the

melody continues to play we MOVE towards a building and ZOOM

into a window.

2 INT. THERAPIST'S OFFICE - DAY 2

A fifty-year old female therapist (DR. GREENBAUM) sits at

her desk, frowning as she takes notes. Books of Jung and

Freud line the shelves.

A young man (SEBASTIAN VALMONT) sits in a chair in front

of her looking impatient.

The therapist continues to write notes.

DR. GREENBAUM

Jesus. We've been at this for six

months.

SEBASTIAN:

I know.

DR. GREENBAUM

And you haven't made an ounce of

progress.

SEBASTIAN:

I know.

Sebastian takes out a cigarette.

DR. GREENBAUM

(not looking up)

There's no smoking in my office.

Sebastian sneers at her then puts the cigarette away. Dr.

Greenbaum finishes her notes and looks up at him, shaking

her head.

SEBASTIAN:

What do you want me to say? That I'm

supposed to feel remorse because I act

the way I do? The truth is I don't.

Dr. Greenbaum shakes her head and takes notes.

SEBASTIAN (cont'd)

Look, I'm not like all the other kids

in high school. I don't care about book

reports and extra-credit. Teachers

are idiots anyway. The only challenge

out there for me is women. You see a

girl you like. You pursue them. You

conquer. You move on. It's exciting.

DR. GREENBAUM

But you said you have the worst

reputation.

SEBASTIAN:

I do.

DR. GREENBAUM

Don't you want to change that?

SEBASTIAN:

Let me tell you something, doctor.

Chicks love a guy with a bad rap.

They say they don't, but they don't

mean it. They all think that they're

the ones that are going to "save me."

The trick is to let them think it's

true.

DR. GREENBAUM

I think that's all the time we have

for today.

SEBASTIAN:

Same time next week?

DR. GREENBAUM

No. This is going to be our last

session.

SEBASTIAN:

Why? I like spending time with you.

You know, you're quite attractive for

a woman your age. You have killer legs.

Killer.

DR. GREENBAUM

This isn't a joke. Your parents spend a

lot of money to send you here. I'm

trying to help you.

SEBASTIAN:

Don't be insecure, Doc. You're a big

help.

Sebastian picks up a book of Freud.
