I saw Wild Things opening weekend in March 1998. I was 15 years old. It was an important movie to me. My high school friends and I were whipped into a frenzy in anticipation of its lurid thrills. I remember after we saw the movie, we were in my friend’s car and he decided to play a game I’ll now call “Wild Things! No red lights!” where he made a right turn at any red light, then pulled a U-turn, followed by another right turn to beat every red. He even cut through a gas station at one point. We were pumped. Sure, there were other “hot” movies in the ‘90s, but this was “our hot movie.” It had Sidney Prescott and Denise “Fleet” Richards getting it on. It was an important movie to me. I was 15 years old. None of us had girlfriends.
Note: The end credits to this film > any Marvel credits scene ever. Can we have a Wild Things cinematic universe?
