When Edgar (Hector Elizondo) is at the cemetery before the movie starts, on the movie screen is the title of the movie, Hot Spell (1958), and pictured the two main characters. He mentioned that the woman on the screen is his trifecta. When asked if he meant literally the actress on the screen. He said "Yes, literally." The actress on the screen was Shirley MacLaine, who played his wife in this movie. See more »
At the flower market, when Reed meets Kelvin and at the agents office when Paula initially speaks to Liz, the characters speak, and we distinctly see their mouths move, but it is very clear that they are not saying the words that we hear. See more »

My wife wanted to see this movie because there were so many of her favorite stars in it. That's about all she got to see, her favorite stars on screen. There were just too many story lines and none of them were really developed fully. The movie was slow, the story lines predictable, and, for us, the movie didn't get interesting until the last 15 minutes, which is how I ended up giving it 2 stars. I originally was going to give it 1 star (awful). The movie was dragging and I kept looking at my watch and hoping the movie would end. I asked my wife several times if we could just leave. If you want to catch it, wait until it gets to Red Box and rent it for a dollar. It sure was not worth paying full admission for it.
