Speaking of ‘Cruel Intentions’, If somebody asks me, how to pull off a commercial movie with not so big budget that makes money at the box office then I say it’s simple ; have a glamorous star cast, make a manipulative story which in short is just something we have already seen, dramatize the whole story with the elements like deception/emotions/greed/obsession/love/lust/betrayal etc. and last but not the least combine it all with sex and here we go. This is how I define Cruel Intentions. Here is the list of movies similar to Cruel Intentions that are our recommendations. You can watch some of these movies like Cruel Intentions on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
What Unfaithful has in common with Cruel Intentions is betrayal and the obsession which evolves when a person’s inner desires are incited.

Screenplay writing is the skeleton of every movie, a spinal foundation without which no movie is embodied. Surprisingly according to the script writing gurus, there are only 7 or 8 types of movie genres upon which a film story takes place; yet it is very often when we see something new in a movie that makes it better than others of the same genre. A woman forcing her ex-lover to cater to her sexual desires regardless of the fact that he is happily married is something that rebukes the common mentality of people blaming only men for sexual harassment. It was such an interesting story of a different shape given by the female antagonist. We enjoy both ‘Disclosure’ as well as ‘Aitraaz’ (Indian version) seeing a man at odds once he faces such allegations which proves him guilty long before the court even begins its trials. The film was very well received by the movie goers that gave Bollywood a reason to transpire the same Idea on the big screen.
