5.0 out of 5 stars Don Johnson Hot and Sexy! April 2 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I remember watching this movie on NBC. I was in fifth grade and drooling over this sex symbol. Don Johnson played a drifter Ben Quick, who was mysterious and trouble to some of the residents in the small town. Varner, played by the late Jason Robards, was a man who was respected in his community. He liked Quick. Varner had a daughter Noel, who was aloof and would later find herself in the arms of Ben Quick. Sybil Shepard was Eula Varner, the wife of Jody Varner. She cheated on Jody with another man. When she showed up beaten, Jody was quick to believe Ben did it. When the murder of her lover and a fire occurs, Ben is the first suspect.
Ben, being a drifter, attracted women because of his physique and cool attitude. Don Johnson has sex appeal and a collective attitude that made him good for this role.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Hot Summer-Remake June 16 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Over the years I have ocassionally seen Long Hot Summer with Don Johnson and have enjoyed it tremendously. He and Ivey did a tremendous job together and I felt the match was perfect. The tension between the two kept the movie very interesting. I liked it so much that I've recently bought both the original version and the remake. When I watched the original with Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward I was a little disappointed in it. Although I like both Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward I felt their acting in this movie had a little to be desired. Maybe for that time it was good, but after having already seen the remake first I didn't think the original was as good. Definitely purchase the remake and you will enjoy it thoroughly.

5.0 out of 5 stars even better Aug. 16 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I have seen both verson's and as much as I love paul newman I liked the remake better. Don Johnson makes you feel his torment in a way that Paul Newman did not. Judith Ivey was good as the love interest because she was not beautiful. In the original the the brother and the boy friend were play by actors that I like, but their personalitys were too strong for the roles they were playing. The longer running time let the writer develope the chactors better and let the plot, relationships, and suspence build gradually.

5.0 out of 5 stars You will really feel the heat with this movie! May 31 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This version of the Long Hot Summer is an excellent adaption of the earlier movie with Paul Newman and JoAnne Woodward. Don Johnson is perfectly cast as Ben Quick and James Gammon is appropriately smarmy as his dad. Cybill Shepard, William Russ, Jason Robards, Judith Ivey, and Ava Gardner are also well cast in their roles. You start to sweat right along with the characters as their relationships heat up. Don Johnson just oozes sex appeal in every scene. It is easy to get lost in their portrayals, you will want to order a mint julep and sit on the veranda before the night is over!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic remade with class April 4 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Being a humongous Don Johnson fan I will be byass by saying first that I saw the original with Paul Newman and wife Joanne Woodward. I enjoyed that very, very much. It was very charming dramatic and sexy. Oh my god was Newman a hunk. So Don really got me heated up by giving an equally sexy portrayal of Ben Quick, more modern of course, with tension, heat. It was very 80's with the love scenes outside with Ivey. Hell as sexy as he looked and carried himself I would've been in the grass with him bugs and all. Okay now maybe that wasn't as byass as the rest. But is still classy, charming, sexy and very dramatic. I think Ivey was a good match. We don't always have to find a supermodel Pamela Anderson looking woman. She's is more attractive to him because she was the exact opposite of him. Shepard's character is more whom he probably would link with but it worked with Ivey because of the constant conflicts and pent up tension between the two. As without saying Mr. Robards was excellent in every scene as I expected to see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh yes, it's good! Feb. 12 2001

I happened to catch this movie on TV and fortunately for me, taped it. I loved the scenes between Judith Ivey & Don Johnson - in the store & by the river - best love scene I have EVER seen. The scenes between Jason Robbards & Don Johnson makes you feel like you are listening at the door on the veranda. The music is wonderful, different, haunting and adds so much - the direction and shots and the passion - they're all there. I watch this movie once a summer - when it is very hot out. Wish I could see it on the BIG screen.
