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 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars my humble opinion March 5 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Johnson did an excellent job in his role. However, he would have been even better opposite a different leading lady. I felt that Ivey was miscast. While she is a fine actress in other roles, and portrays a good spinster daughter, she lost her credibility as Johnson's love interest. True, both actors did very well portraying their individual versions of outcasts and the tension which developed between them. Their sparring was fine, but when they tried to be amorous it just fell apart for me. Also, the movie had that "made for TV" feel to it. The rest of the cast was quite good.

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 One of the best movies made in these parts. April 9 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I think that of all of the movies and videos filmed here in southern Louisiana, this one sure ranks up there with the best. Not only did I see the movie, but I also saw it in the making, which drew me in, even further. At least half of the movie was filmed within a half of a mile from my home. My father drove the camera crew around in the boat, in the begining of the movie. My fathers friend drove Don Johnson to the boat landing when he first arrived into town, also in the begining of the movie. So if you think that the movie was good, you should have been there for the making.
