The Fox Movie Channel has a knack for unearthing forgotten movies that never made it, as part of the fare they offer their viewers. Case in point, "Hot Chocolate", a 1992 film that might not have had a commercial run, as it appears it went directly to video. It is no great loss, by the way, if no one ever saw it.
This movie set in France seems to have been a vehicle for Bo Derek, a gorgeous creature, that in this project, seems totally miscast as B.J. Cassidy, the daughter of a wealthy Texan, who loves to invest in obscure companies as a way to avoid taxes. B.J. comes up with the idea of buying a chocolate factory that produces excellent truffles and fits right into the Cassidys plans. She has to go to inspect the place and falls in love with the factory owner's private driver.
The film is predictable and doesn't have anything new to say. Perhaps with another leading lady "Hot Chocolate" would have turned out better. There is no chemistry between the stars, Robert Hays and Bo Derek. Ms. Derek's delivery is awkward, at times, and she gives a flat performance.
