4. Cruel Intentions

The Skinny: Spoiled teenage step-siblings Kathryn (Sarah Michelle Gellar) and Sebastian (Ryan Phillippe) entertain themselves by taking advantage of vulnerable teenage girls to impress one another.

That is until Sebastian meets Annette (Reese Witherspoon) and only realizes the consequences of his actions once it's too late.

The Kicker: "How can someone so charming be so manipulative?"2

The Takeaway: Even if Annette can forgive Sebastian in the end, we sure don't.

Spoiler alert: Not even his death exonerate Sebastian of his lifelong dedication to predatory behavior.

The lesson?

A creep in love is still a creep.
