  • 1 stars awful
  • I really liked this movie, it's really different, but the ending wasn't the greatest.
  • Yeah well, it was not easy to adapt Bret Easton Ellis, but Avary did it!!! What a movie!! And the young cast is amazing (in particular somerhalder, which just blows the screen up). By the way, orry for my English, I`m Frech..;
  • sick!!
  • Not a bad movie. pretty interesting, in fact. sorta leaves you speechless at the end, kinda like watching movies such as american beauty.
  • I liked it.
  • This movie it totally not what I anticipated. This is one of those movies that get better the more you watch it. This is a film I feel that should be over analyzed because you see how much Avery is an artistic genius. If you are an impatient person, watch it for the direction because it is simply amazing. This movie should have gotten better recognition. It has been unfairly trashed. It you do not like movies that are real and are a simple human being, this film is not for you. This movie is for the open-minded. If you like films like American Beauty or Lost in Translation, I think you will like this one.
  • Honest, brave and awesome! Loved it, loved it, loved it. My favourite movie to date.
  • this was actually the most cracked out piece of garbage i`ve ever seen, let me save you the money, the time, and the confusion by saying, never ever rent this overly thought out, novel destroying film.
  • This film, in large, suffered from a poor marketing campaign, as it was critiquing the very audience it was attempting to attract. This is just one reason The Rules of Attraction appears to be flawed to many who unknowingly completely misunderstood the entire premise. Set in a small liberal arts college in New England, one is thrusted into the lives of three main characters -- each having a different naration, interpretation, and experience of similar (often the same) occurences. People complain of the poinltessness of this film, that the characters were seemingly one dimensional in their three dimensional portrayals, and that all that
