On the one hand, Wild Things knows what it is and is delightfully trashy w/o any misplaced ambition. The cast is clearly having fun. As far as performances go, Bill Murray is the highlight as a shady lawyer. But on the other hand, it's kind of a letdown. The much touted sex scenes are too brief and aside from some topless shots, it's not as erotic as it thinks it is.

If the cast didn't act like they were all chewing the scenery in the cheesiest of cheesy soap opera melodramas, the twists and turns of this convoluted thriller might actually be fun. At times, it's a great time, but, oh, that dialogue...

A fun, sexed-up crime film that's got more twists than a soft-served twist cone. Cool as ice and hot as hell.

Cast: Matt Dillon, Neve Campbell, Kevin Bacon, Denise Richards, Bill Murray, Theresa Russell, Robert Wagner.
Matt Dillon plays Sam Lombordo, a well respected counselor of Blue Bay High School accused of raping two students spoiled rich-girl Kelly Van Ryan, and trailer-trash bad-girl Suzie Toller. Local police detective Ray Duquette investigates the allegations. The story takes off from there, leading you down a winding path of surprises and lies that round out to the shocking finale. There are twists and turns at every corner, so many it will make your head spin but not everything is what it appears to be and the big question arises: who is deceiving who? Overall, Wild Things is one heck of a film, a love-it-or-hate-it experience that personally I loved.
