Amusing as this may be, there's something a bit studious about "Body Heat." Kasdan's ceiling fans and Venetian blinds often come across as film school affectations.
February 8, 2008
Steamy, explicit and highly-charged film noir reworked with an 1980s gloss.
February 8, 2008
Still regarded as one of the steamiest movie's of all time, Body Heat is a fantastic exponenet of how noir has developed.

Lawrence Kasdan's 1981 noir fable is highly derivative in its overall conception, but it finds some freshness in its details.
February 8, 2008
An excellent crime drama in the style of Raymond Chandler, James M. Cain, and Dashiell Hammett.

February 8, 2008
Though Lawrence Kasdan's film is set in today's South Florida, its characters move through an atmosphere that suggests the confluences of decor and demeanor in a 1940s film noir.

While Body Heat involves murder, fraud, a weak hero led astray and a seductive, double-dealing broad, it also incorporates something new: a sexual explicitness that the old films could only hint at.

Kathleen Turner, twenty-five and not a stitch on her. There's other good stuff too, but does it really matter?
| Original Score: 5/5
