Eleanor Abernathy's rating of the film The Rules of Attraction

is it just me or does all of ellis' books translate horribly to screen? this one wasn't *that* bad and stayed pretty well on course with the book (unlike american psycho which went totally off the deep end into camp-ville) but there was just something missing. although i did get a big laugh at the beginning with the whole, "oh my god, i'm fucking a townie."
