Storyline

Rachael Newman has developed an interest for murders after she encountered psychopath Patrick Bateman. To further study the subject, she enrolls at the university department for Behavioral and Social Sciences, under the expert leadership of former FBI agent Robert Starkman. Very certain about herself, Rachael has one single goal: to become Starkman's teaching assistant. It's a prestigious job as having that position will almost guarantee employment at the FBI. But becoming her professor's assistant is no easy task to accomplish, as the first trouble arises when secretary Gerty Fleck decides she is too young for it. And Gerty Fleck won't be the only obstacle. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

The film began production with no association to American Psycho (2000), and it wasn't decided to repurpose it until it had already started filming. Bret Easton Ellis, the author of the original novel, claims the studio wanted to include a serial killer subplot in The Rules of Attraction (2002) but the filmmakers objected to the idea, leading to this film.

Goofs

(at around 38 mins) The second scene in Professor Starkman's class takes place two days after the first one yet everyone is wearing the same clothing and the word "Nicknames!" is still the only thing written on the blackboard. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Rachael Newman: [narrating] Clara was my babysitter. I was only 12 years old. Naive, and somewhat trusting. But all that was about to change. You know how some babysitters take you to the movies, or rollerblading in the park? Mine brought me along on a date with a serial killer. Patrick Bateman. Not my idea of a romantic evening. God, I mean look at her. All drugged-up and tied to a chair. I knew we should have gone to the movies.
Rachael Newman: At first I was scared. I wanted to get out of there as fast as I ...

American Psycho II is a blatant attempt to rip off the reputation of American Psycho, which was a classic critique of the 1980s yuppie culture. It was also based on an actual book, by Brat Easton Ellis, which means that it was much better written than your average teen horror schlock.

I feel sorry for 19 year old (at the time) Mila Kunis. I'm sure she's a nice girl and has some kind of acting future ahead of her.

The very notion of replacing Patrick Bateman with a cutesy teenaged girl (in the movie) is in and of itself a betrayal of the hardhitting satire it was based on. Any attempt to try and connect with the original is both forced and pathetic.

Miss this one at all cost, and if you haven't already, see the original, with Christian Bale, Willem Dafoe and Jared Leto, among many others.
