Wild Things (1998)

A crime thriller famed for, more than anything else, the kissing scene between Neve Cambell and Denise Richards.

This twist-filled mystery of deceit, sex and greed is set in the steamy swamps of Florida. It follows two high school students, the guidance counselor they accuse of rape and the detective who knows there's more to the story.

Not only is it highly unusual, but the picture is chock-full of surprise and unexpected humor to leaven its thriller trappings.

Predicated on two ideas -- that human nature is rife with perfidy and that it's important to get the cast into hot cars or bathing suits whenever possible -- Mr. McNaughton and the cinematographer Jeffrey L. Kimball (''Top Gun,'' ''True Romance'') give a decadent gloss to this far-fetched, quintuple-crossing tale.

It's like a three-way collision between a softcore sex film, a soap opera and a B-grade noir. I liked it.

The movie has more twists than Chubby Checker, and as soon as you think Stephen Peters' script has used up every conceivable opportunity, it twists again.

As double-cross becomes triple-cross becomes quadruple cross, it all gets awfully trying.
