" Body Heat is a 1981 American neo-noir erotic thriller film written and directed by Lawrence Kasdan in his directorial debut. It stars William Hurt and Kathleen Turner, featuring Richard Crenna, Ted Danson, J. A. Preston and Mickey Rourke. The film was inspired by the classic film noir Double Indemnity.

" First Viewing Viewing Date: April 16th Via: iTunes Store Plot: In the midst of a searing Florida heat wave, a woman persuades her lover, a small-town lawyer, to murder her rich husband. Rating: 7.7/10 Why Did I Watch It? This has been on my watchlist for some time due to the cast and the director, plus the solid rating on IMDb. After buying it for cheap on iTunes, I decided I was in the mood for something classy, and I gave this a spin."

"It's a hot summer. Ned Racine is waiting for something special to happen. And when it does... He won't be ready for the consequences. She taught him everything she knew - about passion and murder. As the temperature rises, the suspense begins."
