Convoluted erotic thriller, not for kids.

The movie is as tawdry as someone else's lingerie, yet not without a certain prurient watchability.

What I'm supposed to find 'satisfying' is predicated on the idea that almost everyone in the world is trash.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

A sleazy, seamy, flashy, steamy, vulgar exploitation thriller that revels in every minute of its own trashiness and delivers some pretty solid -- if prurient -- entertainment.

Sly, torrid and original, pic is certain to shake up an otherwise complacent marketplace.

[It's got] Neve Campbell and Denise Richards making out, all the plot twists and double-crossing of a James Ellroy novel, Neve Campbell and Denise Richards having a catfight in a swimming pool and Bill Murray as a sleazy neck-brace-wearing lawyer.

| Original Score: 3/4

I heartily recommend Wild Things for its fits of teasing and eroticism (rare in American cinema) and for Bill Murray who has a great role as Lombardo's attorney.

This is one of those puzzle movies that's quite intriguing while it's feigning superficiality -- and truly funny when Bill Murray is around -- but really dumb once it thinks it's being smart.

Wild Things plays like a long Twilight Zone episode with a thick Everglades breeze to it. READ ON (DVD)->

One of those films for which the phrase 'guilty pleasure' was invented.

Film Freak Central

Aging sexpot Theresa Russell gets the most Skinemax-worthy moment in a picture that purports to humour jailbait fiends

Carlo Cavagna

Good, trashy fun, with gratuitous sex and nudity, a ludicrous (in a so-bad-it's-funny way) performance by Denise Richards, and an implausible noir plot that keeps you in the dark until the final credits. The ultimate guilty pleasure.

One of those thankfully rare pictures that makes every man and woman it portrays seem hollow and insubstantial.

What "Titanic" supplied for female teens, "Wild Things" will supply for their male counterparts.

...even though the action is spiced up with kinky sex, a quick flash of male frontal nudity and long, lingering shots of voluptuous girls in skimpy clothes, there's a peculiar lifelessness about the whole affair.

Personally, even though I think that the film's too twisted to be believable, I enjoyed it.

Boxoffice Magazine

This tale of revenge does manage to sidestep cliches and predictability found in this genre, but it goes too far out of the lines to be appreciated.

Stephen Farber

Wild Things is a cut above most of the other recent film noir knockoffs, mainly because director John McNaughton has an unmistakable talent for the tawdry.
