Set in the year 2000 (between the events of Patlabor and Patlabor 2), when the level of Labor accidents begin to escalate around Tokyo Bay, police detectives Kusumi and Hata are assigned to investigate. What they discover leads to a series of government cover-ups, conspiracy concerning a new biological weapon entitled WXIII-Wasted Thirteen and a tragic, personal connection to Hata. The only hope to stop this threat is to cooperate with the military and lead WXIII into a showdown with the Labors of Special Vehicle Division 2.

Why anyone wanted to make this movie is beyond me, as even the fights seem duller than in the previous one, which is an achievement in itself.

Paul K (de) wrote: Enjoyed this one. It's a silly romance, with chocolate. A bit Amelie, quite wacky, French in provenance and outlook. The serious element, if there is one, addresses the problems faced by the chronically shy. Laugh aloud fun.

Duncan M (it) wrote: Good movie more for the music than for the story. MIght wake a few people up to the fact that real jazz IS contemporary. I'm not so sure it does much of a service by giving the impression that all jazz musicians do some of the stupid things the characters in this film do.

This movie is very dated and not really even an allegorical attack on the likes of the PMRC or the Moral Majority. She's hot and quick with clever improvisation (she was a Groundling).

Unfortunately his mother dies, but fortunately she owns half the executive's company and leaves it to him...she also leaves him a talking horse. The stepfather tries to hornswoggle Fred's side of the business. Fred will partner with his talking horse to outsmart the executive."He's like a member of the family.""Which side?"Michael Dinner, director of Heaven Help Us, Off Beat, The Crew, Outlaw Country, Clementine, Wild Blue, and episodes from the television series Justified, Grey's Anatomy, Wonder Years, and Chicago Hope, delivers Hot to Trot. The storyline for this picture is ridiculous but entertaining to watch to see how it unfolds. The script is average but contains some sequences worth a giggle. The acting is below par and the cast includes Bobcat Goldthwait, Dabney Coleman, John Candy, Virginia Madsen, and Jim Metzler."You can't live with me.""Why?""Because you're a horse."Hot to Trot is a movie I watched repeatedly as a kid as it was always on HBO. I came across it on HBOGO and decided to watch it again for the first time in a long time; well, I understand why I enjoyed it as a kid, it was fun in a "what if they could" kind of way, but this is definitely a below average movie that was a bit disappointing. I would only watch this if you were raised in the 80s."Darling, don't be a chicken shit."Grade: C-
Nikolai E (ca) wrote: Detectives, lawyers, psychologists, hostage negotiators, there's no end of films about people doing these jobs because they're all innately cinematic, and they all have in common the fact that they're trained to do battle with words. However, this is the only film I'm aware of that applies the same dramatic rules to a priest. The film is fascinating, simply because the rules of engagement, the syntax, the ways the priest gains leverage in an argument, are unfamilliar. But the scenes of spiritual grappling are only one facet of the film. Bresson excels at presenting a human being flatly, plainly, with only the smallest of external emotional cues, and yet making that image infinitely comelling. There is a huge amount of text in this film, and an equal quantity of narration, and the constant fades between a pen writing a journal and the scene that is being described begin to evoke the diary as a portal separating the internal life of the priest with the objective reality that he's describing. You're always comparing his expectations and reactions to your own, and you're always questioning his version of events. This kind of dual-narrative suggests to me one of the most important uses of religion, to assign meaning to mundane human behaviour. The priest's actions are always being challeged, questioned, re-examined, but he is borne out by the fact that his version is usually the best, if not always the most true. It's not just the best Roman Catholic film I've ever seen (edging out Mean Streets,) it's simply a great film.
