Sam Lombardo (Matt Dillon) is a respected guidance consoler at a Florida high school.  Kelly Van Ryan (Denise Richards) is a student at Sam's school, who's infatuated with him.  When Lombardo denies her sexual advances, she attempts to get even by accusing him of rape.

One allegation is not necessarily enough to destroy an individual however.  When another student, Suzie Toller (Neve Campbell) makes an identical accusation, the consoler's career is crushed, and he's soon hauled in by the police.  Sam knows he is innocent though, and hires a private investigator to prove it.

Wild Things was nominated for an MTV Movie Award.  The picture earned $55 million at the box office, more than double its estimated $20 million budget.
