Unlike the similarly multi-strand Valentine's Day, Hot Summer Days has heart, however overstated most of its action.

Sure, the film sometimes gets too syrupy - hey, it's a date movie - but the way this tale finally ties into one of the others is sublime.

Audience Reviews for Hot Summer Days

This movie is just a bunch of random small stories, not even all linked together... It has some parts that were romantic but not too funny, therefore more of a romance than a romantic comedy. The movie may make you appreciate things more. But for me, I just wanted entertainment, and it wasn't that funny... so 2 stars is all it gets from me.
