Kathleen Turner and William Hurt burned up the screen playing adulterers plotting to blow up husband Richard Crenna in the steamy 1981 thriller Body Heat. Does writer-director Lawrence Kasdan recapture the feel of classic 1940s mysteries with the same success his Raiders of the Lost Ark screenplay duplicated the thrill of old-fashioned movie serials? Or does Cheers star Ted Danson turn the whole affair into a lavish musical with his breakout turn as a hot-stepping lawyer? You’ll find out when you do what’s necessary, and become a Now Playing Patron.
