Despite the quirky trappings, Something Wild is often as tame as its star couple, a pair who scream Ivory soap and plenty of Miracle Whip.

The film's principal difficulty is E. Max Frye's original screenplay, which is better thought out in terms of its narrative than of the characters.

It begins with a meet-cute and ends with a murder, and sandwiched in between those emotional extremes are romance, regret and revenge.

A fun, offbeat, and mildly subversive comedy ... with unexpected twists and ... a real sense of danger.

Demme observes the human eccentricity that underlies the corner-store banalities of Middle America with warmth and loving detail; while a magnificent rock soundtrack and faultless performances from Daniels, Griffith and Liotta ensure pleasures galore.
