Audience Reviews for The Wild Life


An average teen drama like Fast Times at Ridgemont High and other like it. The cast is good, and the characters are interesting, but the story is all over the place. This movie could have been better.

Aj V

Super Reviewer

A post Fast Times teen comedy written by Cameron Crowe. The characters were good. What ever happened to Jenny Wright?

Rodney Eckrich

I found out about this movie from seeing the Bananarama music video of their song for the movie, which made it look funny and interesting. In reality, it was not very funny or interesting. It does have a lot of good actors, but the movie itself is mediocre.
