Wild Things script
Wild Things (1998)
Synopsis: When teen debutante Kelly (Denise Richards) fails to attract the attention of her hunky guidance counselor, Sam (Matt Dillon), she cries rape, igniting a scandal that results in his arrest. Sam appeals to Ken (Bill Murray), a hack personal-injury lawyer who has never handled a case that couldn't be helped by a prop neck brace. Soon, a second victim, Suzie (Neve Campbell), comes forward, and Detective Duquette (Kevin Bacon) discovers that the unfolding case is far from what it seems.

Cheers, applause. Sam waits for the kids to settle.

SAM (CONT'D)

Come on. Beats study hall, doesn't it?

JIMMY (O.S.)

No!

Boos as we FIND...

JIMMY LEACH, 18, grumge look, long hair. He sits with a clique

of white trashy types, or at least what passes for such at Blue

Bay School. Jimmy appears a bit more genuine, as does...

SUZlE TOLLER, a boyish brunette, seated nearby, but with just

enough space between her and everyone else to mark her as a

loner. She studies Sam Lombardo with a dark, sullen stare.

SAM:

Thank you, Jimmy.

JIMMY:

Hey, man, at least in study hail I could

meditate.

KIRK (O.S.)

He means masturbate...

This remark is greeted by a chorus of laughter as we FIND...

KIRK, one of the golden boys, seated with Kelly and Nicole.

SAM:

Something Kirk with which I'm sure you

have hands-on experience.

Loud laughter. Sam quiets them again, then turns to the

blackboard, where he begins to write, in big letters -- S-E-X.

The kids start to cheer.

Sam writes another word -- C-R-I-M-E-S.

The cheering fades into silence.

SAM (CONT'D)

We've all heard the words, date rape,

sexual harassment. We've talked about

some of these things in this room.

(beat)

Our speakers today head up the Blue Bay

Police Sex Crimes Unit -- Detectives Ray

Duquette and Gloria Perez.

(beat)

They're here to give you what we hope

will be a fresh perspective on these

subjects, and to answer any questions

you night have.
