Family Values on ABC
The other night I noticed that Cruel Intentions starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillipe, and Reese Witherspoon was on cable. Of course all sorts of movies appear on cable television, though I happen to notice the station logo in the bottom right corner said ABC Family. Of course, Cruel Intentions is a family movie. Gellar plays step-sister to Phillipe, whom she also teases with the promise of anal sex should he do as she tells him to. And there's nothing un-family about Gellar's saliva-string kiss with Selma Blair, who plays the dumb innocent in this teen remake of Dangeorous Liaisons. ABC Family Values ... for the post-family era.
