...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.

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.

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.

Making good sleaze is more difficult than you would expect.

On its own terms, it works; that is, each ending is well thought-out and vaguely logical.

Bacon, Campbell, Murray and Dillon are all fun to watch in this film.

Far be it from me to say it's no fun to watch a movie that so doggedly avoids any hint of redeeming value.

The movie is a lot like a jigsaw puzzle in which all the pieces fit, but you don't know exactly what you're looking at until the very last piece is in place.

If one appropriately adjusts all viewer expectations from the film's very first line...a hooting good/bad time can be had.

...clever and amusing...

Sure it's an exploitation movie, but this twisted Technicolor orgy is also a thriller in the original sense of that word.

It never tries to pass itself off as art, just pure vulgar entertainment.

...Bacon's pork sword alone is not worth the price of admission.

The script by Stephen Peters exploits one twist after another, until they seem as manipulative as Richards' wet T-shirt.

A fun movie about a community of people with larceny in their hearts, which delivers humor, some whodunit mystery, and quite a few samples of good-old trashy dialogue.

Laughably bad.
January 1, 2000
Moderately entertaining trash that turns crafty in the last reel when it is finally called on to explain itself.

McNaughton, (Henry, Portrait of a Serial Killer) knows a thing or two about irony and murderous tendencies, and this is as glossy and flashy and fun as they come.
