DVD REVIEW: WILD THINGS UNARTED EDITION

By David Blackwell

PLOT: a high school counselor is accused of rape by two teenagers at the high school in the community of Blue Bay (in Florida). The teenagers are scheming together and there deceptions upon deceptions.

ANALYSIS:  WILD THINGS starts out as a guilty pleasure movie that turns into a very intriguing movies with many twists and turns. Deceptions are hiding under deceptions until the truth is revealed at the end. Director John McNaughton only shows you want he wants you to see.

There is some good acting in here. Kevin bacon is good, but Matt Dillon plays a guidance counselor

That just gives me the creeps no matter how much some high school girls thinks hes cute and hot in the movie. Denise Richards fits her role perfectly, but it would have been more interesting to see her play the trailer trash role played by Neve Campbell. Alas I dont like Neve Campbell in this movie at all. She comes off as a brat in most of her roles on movie and TV, but I did like her as an Australian tennis star in an episode of Kung Fu: The Legend Continues.

The DVD:

The video is presented in 2.35:1 widescreen. The skin tones and colors are good, but they seem a little muted compared to some other DVD transfers what are richer in color warmth and brightness. The audio is great. No music overwhelming the dialogue.

The audio is available in English or Japanese 5.1 Dolby Digital with the option of English, French, or Japanese subtitles. It is odd that Japanese is the other 5.1 language track when usually French is the other 5.1 track on many American movies released to DVD.

It is a real disappointment that arent any other extras besides bibliographies of cast and crew, and some trailers. Columbia should have imported the extras from the first WILD THINGS DVD.

Included on the DVD are trailers for WILD THINGS, WILD THINGS 2, CRUEL INTENTIONS, MY NEW BEST FRIEND, and SIN.

If you want to see the movie, the unrated edition is for you. If you want extras, buy the R rated version on DVD.
