Hot, Hot Hot!
23 January 2003 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

There probably isn't another movie out there that could make you thirstier than this one. Plot follows a young couple and their newborn through a devastating heat wave. Everyone's looking for water as the towns supply dries up. Things get tough especially on the baby. Look for the makeshift incubator. (Great Idea!) Reminds me of the Twilight Zone episode where the Earth shifts and heads towards the sun as the temperature keeps climbing. Acting is O.K. Worth a look on late night TV.
