Both of the movie's two lead male actors, Dom DeLuise and Jerry Reed, were both known for working with Burt Reynolds in separate franchises, in the "Cannonball Run" and "Smokey and the Bandit" series respectively. 1979's Hot Stuff (1979) was one of two movies in which Reed and DeLuise both appeared, the second being Smokey and the Bandit II (1980) released the following year in 1980.

The first half of "Hot Stuff" is definitely better than what follows. Dom DeLuise, Jerry Reed, Susan Pleshette, and Luis Avalos, open a pawn shop, specifically to receive stolen items. The nice assortment of quirky characters, and their bizarre goods, being delivered into the hands of police officers is funny. What happens is they eventually run out of money, and have to start selling off the hot items to make ends meet. Unfortunately a "Godfather" element completely misfires, as does most of the remainder of the film. There is enough here to recommend a watch, just don't expect the comedy to hold up through the entire movie. - MERK
