YMMV / Wild Things

  • Best Known for the Fanservice: This is the one where you see Denise Richards' breasts and she makes out with Neve Campbell's body double, right?
  • Magnificent Bastard: Suzie, who manipulates and outsmarts every other player and gets away from the whole mess a multi-millionaire..
  • So Bad, It's Good: It was billed as a thriller, but it plays like a spoof. In addition to some truly horribly staged scenes and awful dialogue, it has some exceptional scenery chewing from Denise Richards and Kevin Bacon. Only Bill Murray seemed to be aware that the movie was meant to be tongue in cheek (which is even more hilarious since Kevin Bacon was the movie's executive producer). The film's twist ending, though not too difficult to either see coming or figure out once revealed, was fully explained with supplemental scenes in the end credits that fill in the gaps. It also has a great Gambit Pileup story buried under bad writing and mediocre acting. It's like watching a movie of a Carl Hiaasen novel, certainly more than the Film of the Book of Strip Tease.
  • Took the Bad Film Seriously: It isn't necessarily a bad movie. While the film seems to be trying to be a Stealth Parody of the erotic thriller genre, the cast doesn't seem to agree on how seriously to take the script. As a result, many see it as unintentionally hilarious.
