IMDB Rating: 6.8

The title of this movie exemplifies the movie's passion and sexiness, especially Don Johnson's topless scenes! (This is must for Don Johnson fans!!) Don gives this movie what was missing in the original when Paul Newman played the same role. (Don't get me wrong, Paul also played a great interpretation of the same role in the original, but Johnson adds an energetic passion that was missing in the original character.) Cybill Shepherd also plays a sexy role in this movie...especially as a character you would expect a wealthy Southern son to buy! The Hot Summer Southern nights surely do not cool off with either of these actors around!
