The 1955 Jaguar Roadster, subject of the wager in CRUEL INTENTIONS
Archie's Morgan +8 in SUBURBAN GIRL
The two most interesting vehicles in Sarah Michelle Gellar‘s films have to be the 1956 Jaguar Roadster in CRUEL INTENTIONS, and the Morgan +8 in SUBURBAN GIRL. Gellar drove neither of these. They are both convertibles, and the latter can no longer be purchased in the United States. In I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER, the car involved in the hit-run accident was a 1996 BMW 328i with a sun roof, and Helen Shivers didn’t drive that one either.

In THE RETURN, Gellar’s character, Joanna Mills, drove a 2005 Dodge Ram 4×4. In HARVARD MAN, Cindy Bandolini drove a 2000 BMW 3 series convertible.

The 05 Dodge Ram driven by Joanna Mills in THE RETURN
Gellar’s first starring role on television was as Sydney Rutledge in the short-lived teen soap SWANS CROSSING (1992). In that series, the Rutledge car was a Mercedes 560SL convertible from the late 1980’s.
Patrick Muldoon and Brad Rowe portray a pair of grooms getting married by a lesbian minister (Soleil Moon Frye) in For Better or Worse, a new film by a director I’ve never heard of (Joshua Turnick). The film will also star Janeane Garofalo (who was General Teena MacArthur in Southland Tales), and Rebecca Gayheart (Kelly Morgan in Harvard Man). Ruta Lee also has a role in this one. Ruta got her start playing a teenager on THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN with George Reeves in 1953.
This film is not to be confused with the Jason Alexander film of the same title from the 90’s.
