(mx) wrote: In a hero shop somewhere in New York, a suited man types away on a calculator while a woman reads a book about Frida Kahlo. He exits the shop not paying the bill on his meal and she catches him on it. She's a feisty little thing, a free spirit and he's, well, not. He's conservative, straight laced, yuppie from the 80s. She gives him a ride back to work and they introduce themselves as Lulu and Charlie. Unfortunately for Charlie, Lulu isn't taking him back to work. Instead she's taking him on a road trip to somewhere wild.Charlie is married with kids and is a successful businessman. However, he is a bit of a rebel at heart. Walking out of the restaurant and not paying the bill, sticks it to the man! But Lulu's own rebellious nature just might do the trick in bringing out the real Charlie. He needs an escape. Hell, we all do at some point in our lives. Lulu is able to provide this, but has her own agenda. She may be kinky in bed, but there's something she isn't being entirely honest with him about.Her real name isn't Lulu, but Audrey. She is from Pennsylvania and needs him to be her pretend husband to introduce to her mother. He is the perfect type that her mother would approve of which is specifically why she chose him. It's a big day for Charlie because not only does he have to be her husband to impress Audrey's mother, but also for Audrey's high school reunion. Finding out more about Audrey only makes Charlie more smitten with her. The intimacy between the two goes deep until a more darker side of Audrey's lifestyle rears it ugly head when it shows up at the reunion.Ray use to be in prison, but got out recently. He shows up at the reunion to be back in Audrey's life. A total 360 in the plot shifts once Ray enters the picture. He becomes a menacing force that rocks the boat in what starts off as a romance genre and now becomes something wild. Charlie takes to liking Ray as Ray presents himself as this nice guy type, but Charlie is too nice to see Ray's nasty streak. It isn't until Ray gets Charlie involved in a robbery when his image as a business man gets tarnished for good. This violent turn of events shocked audiences and may have even bewildered some, but it only adds to the film's impressive two for one special: Rom-com and thriller. How nice.I think women like Lulu only exist in films like this (kind of like Clementine from Eternal Sunshine). A woman would never walk up to a complete stranger, like some 25 year old loser who lives with his parents (not describing anyone I know. I swear!), and "kidnap" him. That's the only part of this film that I call out as complete bullshit. Nice as a fantasy, but that is it! Still it didn't dampen my viewing experience. Seeing where the film is heading keeps you guessing. Will it just be another rom-com? Or is this so called "conventional" romance about to blossom into complete thriller territory? Surprisingly it's both and that's what makes it different from the usual fray of mainstream flicks at the time. This film concluded the yuppie nightmare trilogy of the eighties: started off with After Hours and then Blue Velvet. In fact, this is a much lighter version of After Hours. After Hours, I think, was more vicious in the dark comedy genre. Overall, Something Wild garners a balancing act script, with a menacing performance from Ray Liotta, superb direction from the always great Jonathan Demme and an awesome soundtrack of a diverse style of music.
