Director and writer: Robert Towne (Chinatown
Cast: Mel Gibson (when he was young, hot, and presumably less hot-headed), Michelle Pfeiffer, Kurt Russell, Raul Julia.
This is one of those stylish -- dare I say "classy" -- films from the 1980s that had star power, beautiful locales (coastal Southern California) nice threads, cool pads, drugs and dealers, detectives, adventure, mystery and a soundtrack that included tunes by Crowded House and Duran Duran.
Hot Tub Scene: Michelle has shed her shoulder pads and is enjoying an intimate evening with Mel -- she looks alluring in nothing but a pair of thick gold hoop earrings. As '80s dates go, the couple inevitably ends up in the hot tub. The camera angle is low, steam rises, and without warning, the twosome burst from the center of the tub in slow motion passion like a breaching orca in the Bering Sea. Why? To startle us? Because it hadn't been done before (or possibly since)? It's memorable, that's for sure.
