Wild Things is a movie based on sex appeal, money, power, and greed. These
things help all of the mysteries unravel. This reviewer was entertained by the twist after
twist, it is also thought that the setting and the people that the actors portrayed were the
key in making the plot believable. With the story line that takes so many turns the added
items might be the only thing holding the movie together.
While this reviewer found the sex appeal and the struggle for money and power
exciting, it is a clearly a movie that the younger generation would prefer over the
depression generation. While I find "sleaze and cheese… with gratuitous violence and
even more gratuitous sex" enjoyable (Anthony Leong 1), others may not. While the
twists are far-fetched and unlikely to happen, the drama and the suspense built in with the
never-ending twists made the movie truly wild.
With out the setting and characters the plot would have just "tripped over a
tangled bundle of far-fetched crime theories which would nauseate audiences", says Blue
Velvet (1). As Scott Ventura says, With all of the heat and humidity of South Florida, its
much more believable that this kind of story line would happen. (2) Thinking like the
man that I am, who wouldn't want to see the beautiful nude body of Neve Campbell and
Denise Richards, even Steve Rhodes says there body's are admittedly worth displaying
As Blue Velvet states, Gorgeous young characters, tabooish sex, gobs of money,
and a rage driven by class struggle, Wild Things presents mysteries that compound
themselves into sub-mysteries to trick and deceive audiences. Wild Things is rater R for
full-frontal nudity, sex, dope smoking, profanity, and some violence and would be
suitable for older teenagers.
