A hot double cross
Great music and great acting. One begins to doubt one’s own intuition early on and it gnaws at you right up close to the end.
William Hurt and Kathleen Turner in their prime, and Ted Danson in his first movie role steals the show in the few scenes he's in. Mickey Rourke has a small role and reminds us what a stud he was before he left acting for boxing. If you like these actors, it's a must see.

You sweat in your pants watching this flick... great movie. Watch it just to see Ted Danson (Cheers) dance!
Destined to be a classic - an 80s film that everyone (who's interested in film) should see. Kathleen Turner was one of the sexiest actresses to hit the screen at the time, and William Hurt was amazing. Sexy, sultry film noir with a twist.
A Provocative Noir
This film entwines the traditional elements of classic noir with the sexy and untamed sensibilities that contemporary cinema allows.
Very Good Movie
By Rich & Diane in Florida
I loved this movie. It was very racy for the times in 1981.
Slow beginning, but once it was rolling, you couldn't stop watching.
One of my favorite movies is Palmetto with it's twists and I consider it a must see.
Some how, I feel Palmetto ripped off some of the turns and twists from this movie.
this movie has a nice role play, but the adultery in it is appalling. great suspense though.
Nice, Miss Turner... Very nice...
Who's the bad guy here??? Honestly, I found myself cheering Miss Turner on! But this poor, poor string of men who get suckered in to her devilishly sexy world!!! This movie is a must see. Fantastic film noir, curiously easy acting, and smooth picture. Love it!

Smart, steamy... Here's what it's about: "During one hot and sultry Florida summer, a shady lawyer launches into a torrid relationship with a lonely woman married to a rich businessman."
Great suspense movie with some twists.
