Last Tango in Paris vs. Body Heat



A couple of sexy movies where the guy doesn't fare so well. Let's talk about the ladies: Kathleen Turner vs. Maria Schneider. I've never been all that turned on by Kathleen Turner that I can remember, but she wasn't too bad in The Man with Two Brains. Maria Schneider has that French thing going on, which is all I really need to say. I did like William Hurt more in Body Heat than the brooding Marlon Brando in Last Tango. I would have to say that the story and dialogue in Body Heat was far more engaging than in Last Tango as well. Now that I think of it, though, I like Last Tango mostly for the visuals and naked Maria Schneider, anyway. The story doesn't even matter that much. Body Heat isn't even all that sexy, anyway.


Body Heat has a better script and story line and is far sexier than Last Tango in Paris. I really liked the character arc and performance of Marlon Brando in Last Tango though. Body Heat by a few degrees.

Body heat has a more intriguing story.
