Wild Thingsi is yet another re-do of the ancient Diabolique script, all the way down to the very aquatic theme. Still a school, but this time the evil mastermind is a marginal teacher, while the conspiring women teenaged pupilsii. I guess it's better that way, for some people.iii
Obviously this means a significant downplay of the reflexive and reflective elements in the original (already downplayed to all hell to fit both Sharon Stone's limited abilities, and more importantly the limited interests and intellectual capacities of her fanbase) which is then compensated to fill the time with an expansion in the elements. Altogether it is flatter and wider, an extensive outgrowth.
Denise Richards displays her dubious rack.. actually, here you go :
It makes me think that if you're going to go to the trouble of putting plastic in your boobs you might shoot for better results. But then again it also makes me think that this Orgy With Dressed Skank is pretty lame to begin with. Actually... thinking about it, this should probably be re-made into an out-and-out porn film. The script's certainly just about adequate for one.———

- But still one the cynical, damaged skang while the other the idealistic, virginal retard. Notably enough, this apprently correlates with money in the American mind, showing the subject of Arthur Blair's whine about Samuel Clemens (or if you prefer - George Orwell's complaint about Mark Twain) to have survived the whiner.

- Why are gringos so obsessed with teenaged sexuality, by the way ? It really isn't that noteworthy. [↩]
