Wilder Napalm is a 1993 romantic comedy-drama, directed by Glenn Gordon Caron, and starring Debra Winger, Dennis Quaid, and Arliss Howard. The story revolves around two brothers, Wallace and Wilder Foudroyant, who have a unique ability to control fire with their minds. Wallace uses his power as a magician, while Wilder works at a gas station and entertains the local kids in his free time. Both brothers are in love with the same woman, Vida, who used to date Wilder before marrying Wallace.

Set in a small town in Florida, the film follows the lives of these three characters as Vida struggles to choose between the two brothers while dealing with Wilder's jealousy and Wallace's insecurity. Meanwhile, Wilder's powers come to the attention of a local businessman who sees the potential for profit.

As the plot unfolds, it becomes clear that the brothers and Vida are not the only ones with supernatural abilities. A third gifted character, played by Jim Varney, enters the picture and becomes a catalyst for the final showdown.

The film has been praised for its unusual blend of genres, combining elements of romance, comedy, and fantasy. The dynamic between the three leads is particularly strong, with each actor bringing depth and nuance to their characters. Winger is particularly impressive, bringing a vulnerability and strength to the role of Vida.

The use of fire as a metaphor for passion and desire is a recurring theme throughout the film, and the visual effects used to depict the Foudroyant brothers' abilities are suitably impressive. The soundtrack, featuring a mix of indie and alternative rock, adds to the film's offbeat charm.

Overall, Wilder Napalm is a quirky and engaging film that defies easy categorization. Its strong performances and unique storyline make it a memorable and enjoyable viewing experience.

Wilder Napalm is a 1993 fantasy movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 49 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.5.
