Story Synopsis:
As if there really needed to be a sequel to "Wild Things".... Gratuitous boob shots, slow-motion shots of girls rinsing off at beach showers, and lots of girls with attitude move the story of "Wild Things 2" right along. When her wealthy stepdad dies, Brittney Havers (Ward) is shocked to learn that a clause in his will leaves the majority of his riches to either a country club or any blood relative who comes forward. Enter trashy Maya King (Arcieri), who claims she can prove that the millionaire is her father. This sequel is certain to show that nothing is as it seems, and these girls gone wild have some naughty tricks up their sleeves. (Suzanne Hodges)
