Moderately entertaining trash that turns crafty in the last reel when it is finally called on to explain itself.

A film you enjoy or you don't. There's no middle ground.

It's like a three-way collision between a softcore sex film, a soap opera and a B-grade noir. I liked it.

Lucky John McNaughton. Best known for the harder-edged Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer and Mad Dog and Glory," he hits the 90210 jackpot with a slick, steamy tale of nonstop treachery...

Wild Things is a strange sort of hybrid of a movie, and it's not unlike a very long, somewhat jumbled joke. Great punchline, though.
January 1, 2000
The most guilt-inducing guilty pleasure movie that I have ever watched.

The expression 'cheap thrills' fits this movie perfectly. That's the only reason to see it. But if you're in the mood, that can be a pretty good reason.

A quirky little noirish tale of sex, greed and mystery.

Aaron Spelling meets Joe Eszterhas!

Director John McNaughton has some sly fun with the noir genre in this sex-drenched tale of two young vixens (Neve Campbell and Denise Richards) who accuse their high school guidance counselor (Matt Dillon) of rape and begin unwinding plots within plots.

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.

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.

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

If one appropriately adjusts all viewer expectations from the film's very first line...a hooting good/bad time can be had.
January 1, 2000
...clever and amusing...

Brainless and trashy in the extreme, it's also the most canny fun to be had in a while, if you're partial to a swampside Cheez-Whiz nosh.
