    Despite the quirky trappings, Something Wild is often as tame as its star couple.

    After an hour of biting charm, Something Wild turns into something else. In a twist that turns the movie into a silly story of violence, Demme surrenders his style to a stupid plot. [7 Nov 1986]
  3. Something Wild is often "Something Wrong."

    The film causes no tremors, only a hemi-Demme-semiquaver.

    Something Wild is an eccentric comedy that has wonderful acting and surprises. The movie is very funny
    and the characters are well developed.
