Body Heat HAS to be the tightest, most economical murder mystery, love story, drama, thriller ever! There is no hole in the story, no part of the tale is left to speculation or interpretation. Brilliant performances from Hurt and Turner -... Full review

This is a total early 80's movie, haircuts, smoking and all. Pretty good story, kind of slow. Kind of hard to understand some of the dialog. I didn't like the smoking and the haircuts or the pace. The movie gets better... Full review

I started looking for "heat" references as soon as I began watching the video. Hot Florida, hot swing band in the ampitheatre, lots of smoking, hot Kathleen Turner. Hot, hot, hot! Was the movie hot? For most of it, I was... Full review

Man was Kathleen Turner HOT back in THE DAY. This is a really good movie, though it is dated the central theme hits home. A good 'date movie' for the DVD at the house.... Full review

James Berardinelli's Reviews
This is a sexy film -....For the leads, Kasdan pairs the laconic William Hurt and the smoldering Kathleen Turner.....The bluesy music is so evocative of the films of the '40s and '50s....This is Kasdan's homage to film noir (and belongs in a category often dubbed as "neo noir").....John Barry's lush score is equally critical..... ...

"They don't make 'em like they used to" may be a well-worn adage, but there's always an exception to the rule, and no finer example than Lawrence Kasdan's brilliant Body Heat can be found in the annals of film. The fact is they haven't really made 'em like Body Heat since this film's release in 1981. ... Full Review

PopMatters
Lawrence Kasdan's lush neo noir, Body Heat , has aged well since its 1981 debut. Filled with the snappy, flirty dialogue and many charming side characters including a marvelous Ted Danson as Ned's friend Peter Lowenstein, Body Heat turns into a genuinely suspenseful thriller and a stylish remake of the noir genre. ...

The movie is sexually daring....Ned is an insecure lummox when put face-to-face against Richard Crenna's aggressive husband;....he had written a terrific script.....When not depicted as inherently evil, classic Film Noir femme fatales killed for love and to satisfy some basic urge to destroy;....Better than that, twenty five years later Body Heat now plays and looks better than ever.... ...
