Wild Things is the kind of lurid, trashy thriller that you'll either dive into with unabashed pleasure or turn away from in prudish disgust; it's entirely your choice, but we suggest the former option since it's obviously much more fun. The plot's so convoluted it's hardly worth describing, except to say that it's set in humid Florida and involves a respected high school teacher (Matt Dillon--yes, Matt Dillon as a teacher!) who is faced with accusations of rape by a student (Denise Richards, from Starship Troopers) who had been giving him the kind of attention most people would consider improper for such a "nice" young lady. Another student (Neve Campbell) raises a similar charge against the teacher, and that's when a police officer (Kevin Bacon) begins to investigate the allegations. Just when you think the movie's gone overboard with its shameless sex and absurdly twisted plot, in drops Bill Murray as an unscrupulous lawyer (of course) to spice things up with insurance scams and welcomed comic relief. As directed by John McNaughton (who has a way of making just the right moves with this kind of film noir melodrama), Wild Things is a bona fide guilty pleasure--the kind of movie you may be ashamed to enjoy, but what the heck, you'll enjoy it anyway. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars Just wild about it 11 Jun 2004
Wild Things is great. It has some great comedy, a nice series of sound themes, nice eye candy for the lads and a good laugh for the lasses, and best of all, the only plot I've seen which makes it past the quadruple-cross. Not highly realistic, but it's TV, right?
Denise Richards is the daughter of THE top society family in Blue Bay, Florida. Neve Campbell is a piece of white trash who lives in a broken down caravan in mangroves and looks like a Goth. Matt Dillon is the up and coming star teacher at Blue Bay High and Kevin Bacon is the dodgy cop in the Blue Bay Police Department.
On first sight, Kelly (Richards) loathes Suzie (Campbell) and is intent on seducing her cute teacher Sam (Dillon), and Suzie loathes Detective Duquette (Bacon), for reasons that we don't find out until later. It's only after it becomes apparent how very close Suzie, Kelly and Sam actually are that the plot begins to thicken - and I won't spoil the fun.
It's a thriller that is so trashy, kinky and convoluted that you watch it all the way through, go "Eh?" and have another go - let's say it's the ONLY film I know where there are so many double-crosses that they had to tack an explanatory out-take on the end! Good to watch any time, with any company except possibly your granny, and some lovely sunny scenery for those who really miss the sun through ten months of the year!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sexy classy thriller! 28 Aug 2005
By DVD Fan
I have heard of this film for quite a while now but have only just got round to watching it. I have to say it is a lot better than expected. The acting is good, good story and the plot has more twists than a pizzeria pepper pot!!!
Probably more well know for the scenes where Denise Richards and Neve Campbell kiss and the sex scene, but the rest of the film is much better than most thrillers with a twist, featuring a strong cast including Kevin Bacon. However you do need your brain in gear towards the end of the film to keep up with all the plot twists.........while the credits roll a few scenes are show as if to try and untangle some of the plotlines. Overall a great sexy thriller with a great ending no one could see coming....but you just feel some earlier scenes don't add up once you see the later plot revelations? ....but good fun all the same!

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic sexy twisted thriller. 13 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Imagine one day in a beautiful south Flordia community, a rich woman's sexy daughter washing her handsome guidence consulars jeep and wants to sleep with him, but it becomes a twisted nightmare as the consular is accused of rape, but there is something else behind it. That is the backbone to WILD THINGS. WILD THINGS is defanly the original sexy twisted thriller of the year, that made Denise Richards and Neve Campbell, the sexiest young stars in a erotic thriller. The plot is clever and twisted and you've got to have snakeeyes to understand everything. The performances by Campbell, Richards, Dillion, Bacon and Murray (Ghostbusters fame) are something else. And the sex scene is breathtaking. Who ever wrote a good story to this is amazing. it's like the hidden clues like in the plot, and the actors do the plot as if it is their own. Sam Lombardo (Matt Dillion - There's something about Mary) a consular with a handsome charm doesn't realize that Rich girl Kelly Van Ryan (Denise Richards - The world is not enough, in here ultimate sex straved performance) is in love with him, but she accuses him of rape when he refuses to deflower her. And Suzie Toller (Scream's Never Campbell) too is accusing, but a detective named Ray (Kevin Bacon - The hollow man) has a bad feeling that the rape case maybe a game, but whose game? I have seen this a couple of times, the sex scene with Campbell, Richards and Dillion is truly something else. A CLASSIC THRILLER WITH A TWISTED INTELLIGENT STORY. I reccomended this to Amazon customers 18 years and over it contains Thriller violence, Sex invovling high level Denise Richards nudidty and some bad lananuge. I give it a high score of: 10/10 *****

5.0 out of 5 stars A good film, very cleverly written 1 July 2010
By Rebecca
Firstly anyone watching this with their girlfriend or wife will get a battering in the first 50 minutes as the beautiful Denise Richards shines. However, as the plot twists and turns they will soon congratulate you on picking an excellent intelligent suspense thriller. This is what good films should be like not those drippy lovey eco world saving mush they seem to provide lately. I totally unexpected the twist and the ending which made this film in a way a 'shocker' and you dont really know what to expect next. A good film, very cleverly written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Twisted & Trashy with a Vengeance 14 Oct 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is what's called "a trashy thriller" I've watched some films called this and frequently been disappointed but this is the one, the original item the genuine article the real thing! Set in the steamy marshy coastal area of the Florida Everglades this movie is beautifully photographed from start to finish even the alligators look great. The plot is incredible complicated but don't worry about that just let everything wash over you, there's a rape thyme but that is misleading ending in an astonishing twist, following that about four or five surprises/double crosses, all of the four main characters are involved in some way and by the end only one of them is left alive! Kevin bacon - Matt Dillon - Denise Richards - Neve Campbell are perfect and in a supporting roll Bill Murray adds some comedy. This Blu-Ray is the Unrated Version and shows a bit more of the two lesbian scenes between Denise Richards & Neve Campbell.
