Ah faut reconnaître qu'on a une distribution bien sympathique avec en tête de gondole (ça doit être le produit d'appel qui fait "vendre" et tourner les têtes) la "merveilleuse" Denise Richards découverte par le pervers Paul Verhoeven dans leAh faut reconnaître qu'on a une distribution bien sympathique avec en tête de gondole (ça doit être le produit d'appel qui fait "vendre" et tourner les têtes) la "merveilleuse" Denise Richards découverte par le pervers Paul Verhoeven dans le déjanté Startripes Troufions ! Mentionnons aussi Theresa Russell en cougar hargneuse, ça vaut le coup d'oeil !

Denise vaut sûrement à elle seule le détour (elle donne le torticolis à coup sûr) dans un film qui semble à première vue très bien fonctionner : on se rend compte en effet que le scénario s'avère audacieusement machiavélique, puis verse dans la provocation voire l'inconvenant et la gaudriole, pour ne pas dire le salace. On aime bien ça, le salace.

Le problème avec ces films qui se croient très malins et multiplient les rebondissements les uns après les autres, c'est qu'on y croit plus du tout... parce qu'on a beau dire, on est pas complètement con non plus et on le voit, nous, qu'on nous raconte des conneries grosses comme des maisons.

Bref, le film qui tient presque la corde jusqu'à la moitié (grosso merdo) se délite puis se noie entièrement jusqu'à la fin, la fin tellement grotesque qu'on en pleure de rire. Sauf qu'on rit jaune quand même, car nous n'aimons pas être le dindon de la farce. On se console évidemment avec Denise qui nous montre son silicone et sa belle silhouette : viens nous faire la météo, Deniiiise...

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

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.

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

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..

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.
