Actually This Is A Pretty Good Movie..
The Plot Is Very Well Writen And The Acting By Denise Richards Is Good..
I'm Not Sure Users Are Saying "One Of The Best Movies Of All Time" Because It's Not.. It's A Good Movie..

For years, people have been talking to me about this smart, sexy thriller, that spawned three sequels. There is also something to be said for mysteries, with twists and turns, that make you think, but a half hour into this thing, it was easyFor years, people have been talking to me about this smart, sexy thriller, that spawned three sequels. There is also something to be said for mysteries, with twists and turns, that make you think, but a half hour into this thing, it was easy to figure out why none of the stars came back for the sequels. This movie certainly plays up the eye candy angle, with two of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, and at first glance, it seems like it's going to be a pretty good film, but then the twists and turns kick in. Throwing in a twist can make an ordinary film spectacular, but when you do it every five minutes, it just confuses the hell out of the audience, and that's what happened here. By the end of Wild Things, I didn't know what the hell was going on anymore. As for the performances, they range from the brilliant Neve Campbell to the horrid Matt Dillon, and feature a ton of cameos in-between. I wanted to like this movie, there are some very good looking people, who like to take their cloths off, and that does tend to help you focus more, but the question is what are we focusing on? I concluded that there really isn't a reason to watch two hours of pure when you can find all the naked celebrity pictures you could ever want, in five minutes online. Expand

A review of this film screams for adjectives....and lots of 'em!

It revels in its own A review of this film screams for adjectives....and lots of 'em! This interesting little piece of cinema history simply reeks of sleaze, immorality and deceit....but it openly delights in this netherworld of sin. It revels in its own mendaciousness, gloats at its own corruption, wears it like cheap cologne. It's seedy, mucky, voyeuristic film noir...and it works because it's honest about itself, with no pretences. The lead performances are all acceptable, if not impressive, and the story they are given to play with is wonderfully twisted and grubby, yet still comical and oddly palatable; I don't know how, but it is! It stays one step this side of absurd, its wildly bendy plot pushing the whole experience to the limit, but not so far as to sacrifice the audience's belief and attention. This film takes you into a murky kind of world, on a slow-motion rollercoaster ride, you and all the other inmates, and you feel as though all your sins have been bared along the way. Expand

This film's great! Twist upon twist upon revelation until the shallowness takes on a sort of poetry. Incredible. The luridity and sleaze themselves become almost like music: so huge and inescapable and garish that it begins to work This film's great! Twist upon twist upon revelation until the shallowness takes on a sort of poetry. Incredible. The luridity and sleaze themselves become almost like music: so huge and inescapable and garish that it begins to work directly on the emotions. It's the purest form of trash yet known to Man. It's the embodiment of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. I loved it. I don't want to see too many more like it, but I loved it anyway. There's no point appreciating great art if you can't appreciate great trash, that's what Pauline Kael and Roger Ebert say. And they're right. Wild Things is trash as a genre, not as an adjective. If you can't get in tune with this sort of thing, you'll hate it. Plus it had THAT scene in it. Oh, mother. Expand

Starts out very promising but the plot does get a bit far fetched as it progresses along. There are a few too many twists. This does hurt the credibilty of the film. The cast is good, Denise Richards is a knock out. Great location footage.

Wild Things is a fun twisty, turny piece of semi-erotic film noir.. It's good but it isn't a masterwork or anything. Bill Murray's inclusion, however, is delightful.

Crime. Spoilt rich kid accuses teacher Matt Dillon of rape, but that's the tip of an iceberg. Kevin Bacon investigates through several complexities. Bill Murray enjoys himself as a lawyer. There's a good deal of sex going on and the movieCrime. Spoilt rich kid accuses teacher Matt Dillon of rape, but that's the tip of an iceberg. Kevin Bacon investigates through several complexities. Bill Murray enjoys himself as a lawyer. There's a good deal of sex going on and the movie feels a little tacky, like a cheap diner or '80s fashion; but somehow it seems appropriate. Watch through the credits for revealing extra scenes. Expand
