Body Heat

Director: Lawrence Kasden Run Time: 113 min. Rating: R Release Year: 1981

Starring: Kathleen Turner, Richard Crenna, Ted Danson, William Hurt

Lawrence Kasdan’s tramped up and ruthless remix of Double Indemnity, sees a Florida heat-wave fry the brain of a dopey two-bit lawyer who falls into the trap of a bored and wealthy woman just out to pass the time while her husband’s out of town with a bit of a steamy affair. As the clothes shed and the days pass, a plot hatches to kill her husband and make off with his mountain of money. Dopey lawyer being what he is, goes for it; but one can hardly blame him, it’s for Kathleen Turner, after all.
