SRP $24.95 1.85:1(16:9) DOLBY DIGITAL 5.1 COLUMBIA TRISTAR
 

One probably thought they’d never hear the comment, “Susan Ward is no
Denise Richards,” but acting range aside, Ms. Richards was perfectly
cast as the spoiled, sexy, rich girl in “WILD THINGS.” That film’s
narrative varied between complex to camp, carefully maneuvering back
and forth without feeling trashy.  Susan Ward, who isn’t bad by any
stretch of the imagination, still doesn’t bring the sexual energy
that’s necessary in a film, less structured than the original. In
fact, whereas the first “WILD THINGS” featured some steamy
semi-original sex scenes, this one uses body doubles in such an
obvious manner, as to further point out the absurdities taking place
on screen.

This film has nothing to do with the previous film in narrative,
other than sharing a similar rich, decadent, highschool atmosphere,
murder, and a fortuned that stands to be gained by more than one
person willing to kill for it.

COLUMBIA TRISTAR has preserved the film’s 1.85:1 aspect ratio, with
16:9 enhancement.  Colors are solid, and contrast is impressive, with
deep blacks and grays in dark scenes. Fleshtones appear natural
throughout.

COLUMBIA TRISTAR has presented a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix that’s
extremely aggressive. Surrounds kick on, albeit unrealistically,
throughout the film. Still, it provides a fun atmosphere. Dialogue is
always intelligible and free from distortion.
A making-of featurette is offered, but it’s standard promotional
diatribe, and much to do about little! Several trailers are included.
