The movie is as tawdry as someone else's lingerie, yet not without a certain prurient watchability.
February 11, 2008
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.

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.

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.
August 11, 2003
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.

What "Titanic" supplied for female teens, "Wild Things" will supply for their male counterparts.
September 10, 2002
Personally, even though I think that the film's too twisted to be believable, I enjoyed it.
June 5, 2002
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.
January 28, 2002
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.
February 27, 2001
Making good sleaze is more difficult than you would expect.
February 14, 2001
On its own terms, it works; that is, each ending is well thought-out and vaguely logical.
January 1, 2001
Bacon, Campbell, Murray and Dillon are all fun to watch in this film.
January 1, 2000
Sure it's an exploitation movie, but this twisted Technicolor orgy is also a thriller in the original sense of that word.
January 1, 2000
It never tries to pass itself off as art, just pure vulgar entertainment.
January 1, 2000
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.
