Roger Avary's adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' The Rules of Attraction comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by many of the actors and crew members, an episode of Anatomy of a Scene from Sundance, and a preview of Avary's next film Glitterati (also an Ellis adaptation). This is a solid release from Lion's Gate that will satisfy those who found much to admire in Avary's hyperstylized film.

One of the most realistic dating movies I've seen, albeit depressing. Love triangle does not begin to describe this college based romantic comedy in which everyone can feel the love in the air, but no one can agree on its direction. The movie follows fairly closely to the story set out by the book, both of which are over the top and exaggerated, but closer to realistic dating than most romantic comedies. If I had to pick a favorite dating movie, this would be it. Books would be a toss up between this and 'Christmas at Sibyl's'. Great performances by James Van Der Beek, Shannon Sossamon and Clifton Collins Jr. and an interesting bit part role for Fred Savage make this a truly memorable movie.
Ordered, paid and didn't received, not even a refund...dissapointed.
This was an okay movie but it wasnt really anything like the book. I suggest you read the book to get a much better plot.
This movie is the best i really enjoyed watching it ....
At times this movie can be a little over the top and somewhat overwhelming but overall is a good watch. The best scenes are the ones that involve the character of Paul, espescially the hospital one.
There was a lot going on - maybe too many characters and plots squeezed into too short a film, which worked really well in novel form, but not so well on screen. Bits of it are entertaining, and always good to see ex Dawsons Creeky behaving in a sinister fashion! Overall though, not worth the cultish status it seems it was aiming to reach.
I absloutely would have to give this movie 5 stars, it was flat out excellent. A milestone in any movie lover's dreams. The character who played ''Richard'' aka Dick was hilarious. Please you have to see it, I could watch it over and over again.
A really great film for people who like really great films. It is a very dark and cynical portrayal of a young and wealthy college man (James Van der Beek) who is afflicted with some kind of anti-social or psychopathic disorder, and who sees himself as a sexual predator. He eventually ends up falling in love along the way. Think ''Requiem for a Dream'' meets ''Cruel Intentions''.
I'ts hard to explain the feeling you get after watching this movie. You feel some kind of suspense, but you can't help but laugh every once and a while. And by the way to whom ever gave it a 1 star....why did you even bother to make a comment if you hated it so much?? Was it to dark?? Didn't understand the complex?? or did you just not like it because you knew that Britney Spears couldn't capture the entire text with her pea brain, so ya just had to follow your leader.......?
This movie simply tried too hard. Kinda ironic, it tried to be edgy, contemporary, and different, and yet it wound up being predictable and self important. The acting was TERRIBLE- the actors never inhabited the characters. Skip this movie and rent another instead.
I have seen American Psycho and loved this movie even more. I liked the director and the movie was hilarious. You gotta see it!!!
I have read almost all of Bret Easton Ellis's published novels. I loved the screen adaptation of American Psycho. This movie is simply amazing and imitates the book on cue. It is hillariously funny as the book is. Must own if you love movies like fight club, formula 51, etc.
this is like legit my fav movie. i loved it. its so sick and twisted
This film is both a great adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis novel of the same name and a great film in its own right. Director Roger Avary shows a thorough understanding of Ellis' world, and the actors carry out their parts with precision. I highly recommend it.
As I sit here even hours past watching this movie, I still have yet to see its point. The humor was minimal, the ending didn't even end, and the ''point'' was missing. It was a waste of my time. Time I will never get back. Do not make the same mistake as me and watch this movie. It sucked!
