Welcome to Blue Bay, an alligator-infested, affluent South Florida beach community. High school guidance counselor, Sam Lombardo (Matt Dillon), gets in hot water when an heiress (Denise Richards), and a misfit from the wrong side of the swamp (Neve Campbell) accuse him of rape. The plot has more twists than a Twizzler and almost every line is loaded with innuendo. Whether it holds up is a matter of opinion and tolerance of late nineties radio hits, but you can’t beat the cast, most of which have maintained steady work. Plus, the sexy leads give the audience more than an eyeful.

In 1998, erotic thrillers were still hot following the success of Basic Instinct. Richards had just bug-zapped her way into our hearts in Starship Troopers. Campbell had Screamed twice and wanted to branch out, and Dillon and Kevin Bacon were already well established stars. People clamored to see the film, which recouped almost half its budget on opening weekend, and ultimately grossed over $55 million.

In order to properly celebrate this cinematic revelation, we’ll need to get specific, so this is your SPOILER ALERT. If you haven’t seen the film, close your browser and get to it. We’ll wait. For the rest of you, it’s time to learn what’s up with the cast of Wild Things…
