Don't get this mixed up with 'Where the wild things are'!. Released in 1998 this erotic thriller begins with a high school guidance councillor, Sam Lombardo (Matt Dillon) being accused of rape by two female students, Kelly Van Ryan (Denise Richards) and Suzie Toller (Neve Campbell), and he hires lawyer Kenneth Bowden (Bill Murray) to defend him, but all is not as it seems. This basic plot soon takes a dramatic turn as other schemes come into play. All in all there are about 4 major plot twists to the story and if you didn't manage to figure it out during the movie, the end credits show 'hidden' scenes that explain the various plot twists. The film gained notoriety when it came out for its explicit sex scenes but these are now much reduced in impact due to more modern releases. Denise Richards still smokes as the spoilt Kelly and Neve Cambell works well as her nemesis. Murry is great as the unconventional lawyer. Sure there are some plot holes if you're looking past the eye candy, but its still a good thriller. Unlike other reviewers I had no issues with the disc. The colours and sound were fine -mind you, I do pass it through a hi fi system. I picked this up for under £3 and for that price you can't really go wrong.
