This was a fun movie, that struck the right notes with me as a teenage lad. Lots of twists to be sure, but all things considered I thought they handled them quite well.
But let's face it: the only reason why anyone saw this was rather nice three-way action. Hallo!
Funny story: Some friends and I rented this and Cruel Intentions as part of a video night. Basically take 4 teenage boys and that much sexual innuendo and you're in for a good night. We went to put in Wild Things first, and were shocked to see a British Period piece before our eyes. Surprise turned to annoyance when we discovered the video store person had accidentally put the wrong VHS in the case...
But that was ok, we all loved Cruel Intentions so by the end we were appropriately wanting to be 'Sebastian' [he had a cool car after all].
The things you do when you're young.
