The 1999 adaptation, Cruel Intentions, is a film which is an error that doesn't deserve to be betrayed - an injury that doesn't deserve to be betrayed.
It shouldn't make any sense, that an injury can have the right to be honoured. An injury is pain, and it's grief and it's loss. A loss is intolerable, in actual fact - so Cruel Intentions actually translates to being a film which is an intolerance that doesn't deserve to be itself.
From a casual perspective, of life, it's literally impossible to experience an intolerance. With this being the case, Cruel Intentions is a film which takes the very root concept of an impossibility and turns it into a mystery. Mystery is connected to impossibility, and therefore certainty is connected to possibility - all possibility is certain.
And then that's when Cruel Intentions finds itself in a very awkward, and in a very messed up position: Cruel Intentions connects certainty to possibility, however, it's made this connection under the precarious terms of having also connected impossibility to certainty as well.
Unfortunately for Cruel Intentions, it's just a no-brainer: connecting both possibility and impossibility to certainty is one of the most intellectually brainless things that's possible.
How is it even remotely sane, that certainty is made into something that's simultaneously possible and impossible?
A certainty is a fact. A fact isn't a possibility, and yet it's also a fact that a fact can't be an impossibility either. Where does the insanity end?
Because of its lack of focus, and because of its lack of discipline and its lack of vision, the 1999 film Cruel Intentions is the absolute brainlessness of not giving a reason for why neither possibility and impossibility deserve to be distinguished from each other
