Trivia for The Rules of Attraction (2002):
Sean Bateman, the character played by James Van Der Beek, is the younger brother of the infamous Patrick Bateman, the main character of American Psycho (2000), a film also based on a novel by Bret Easton Ellis.
Bret Easton Ellis, author of the novel on which the film is based, revealed in an interview that director Roger Avary asked him to play the role of Patrick Bateman in the film after Christian Bale, who portrayed Patrick in the film adaptation of American Psycho (2000), turned down Avary's offer to return as Patrick. Ellis also turned him down, saying that he thought it was "such a terrible and gimmicky idea". The scenes with Patrick were eventually shot with Casper Van Dien playing the role, but they were cut from the film.
Christina Ricci turned down an offer to play the character of Lauren Hynde.
Christian Bale turned down an offer to reprise the role of Patrick Bateman.
The trailer for the movie bears a striking resemblance to the theatrical trailer for Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange (1971). Both trailers feature short clips from the movie being intermixed with nouns and adjectives describing the movie (printed as big bold white text on black background), while classical music plays in the background.
The movie that the film student refers to when talking to Lauren at the beginning of the film is Killing Zoe (1994), directed by Roger Avary; it also stars Eric Stoltz, who plays Mr. Lawson in this movie.
This film was edited using Apple's (relatively) inexpensive "Final Cut Pro" software on Macintosh computers to reduce costs.
The radio station that awakens Sean is "WTNA". The music supervisors of the movie are Tom Hajdu and Andy Milburn (tomandandy); the radio DJ's are also named "Tom" and "Andy"
At the Edge of the world party, Candace is wearing a "Tomandandy" T-Shirt, the name of the music supervisors.
In the hospital, a "Dr. Shapiro" is paged over the intercom. Greg Shapiro is the movie's producer.
The song which Sean sings that "segues into Counting Crows" is "Anna Begins", from the 1993 album "August And Everything After".
Casper Van Dien shot two scenes on the phone to James Van Der Beek as Patrick Bateman. They were edited out due to content and film time.
The marker board on Victor's door when Lauren goes to see him reads, "Victor, Tests came back positive. Be careful."
"The End of the World" party scene was filmed on 11 September 2001.
The film on mute in Fred Savage's room is _Kabinett des Doktor Caligari, Das (1920)_
Credits are rolled backwards.
Does anyone know the excat dialouge that paul says in the begining of the movie.
Ive been searching my book for it but i can't find it.
It starts with "sometimes i cant belive the shit that comes out of my mouth."
If anyone knows it thanksss.
I was wondering if anyone knows the name of the instrumental piece that plays right after Victor closes the door on Lauren and then Sean and Paul and talking in the snow.
I just joined, I'm so glad there is a decent Rules community on livejournal.
My favourite scene is Lauren and Mr Lance Lawson. It's just so cringe-worthy and uncomfortable! Actually rather reminds me of my director of studies!
I was watching The Rules of Attraction and decided to make a few icons:
Hi I'm a new member...
Im a huge Bret Easton Ellis fan and love the movies that have so far been made. I can't wait to see if Glamorama gets made with Kip again as Victor.( Please Read im utterly desperate.Collapse )
Just out of curiosity, what colleges would compare to the fictional Camden College?
