Kathryn makes a bet that her step-brother, Sebastian, won't be able to bed Annette (a virgin, who wants to wait until love). If he loses, Kathryn gets his Jaguar, if he wins, he gets Kathryn.

Kathryn Merteuil (Sarah Michelle Gellar), the image of social perfection, takes the sheltered and na�ve Cecile Caldwell (Selma Blair) under her wing, promising to turn Cecile into a model student like herself.

Kathryn's real intention, however, is to take revenge on Court Reynolds, her ex-lover, who dumped her for Cecile. She intends to corrupt Cecile by getting her to sleep with as many men as possible, thereby destroying her reputation and teaching Court a lesson.

Kathryn asks for help from her womanizing step-brother, Sebastian Valmont (Ryan Phillippe). Though Kathryn and Sebastian have collaborated in schemes of manipulation before, he initially refuses.

He is busy planning another "conquest," the beautiful Annette Hargrove (Reese Witherspoon), a girl who has published a manifesto saying that she plans to keep her virginity intact until she falls in love.

Kathryn does not think Sebastian has a chance with Annette, so they make a wager. If Kathryn wins, she gets Sebastian's vintage Jaguar, a 1956 XK140 Roadster; if Sebastian wins, she offers him a night of passion with her.

Sebastian initially rejects this deal, being very enamored of his car, but relents when Kathryn ups the ante, telling him that he can do whatever he likes to her.

This movie is rated R for strong sexual dialogue and sexual situations involving teens, language and drug use.
