Hot One, The
Get ready for a turbo-charged, chrome plated, plus-lined, high gloss, super-speed, customised time!
The combination of stars - a boy, a girl and a sports car - may sound a little unlikely, but one thing's for sure - 'The Hot One' is brimming with adventure, romance and laughs. 'The Hot One' in question is a customised Corvette Stingray - customised and chrome-plated to transform it into the meanest little motor on the highway. And it's a spot of highway robbery that sparks off the action in this race 'n' chase comedy.
The brains behind the wheels of the trailor-made Corvette belong to Kenny - played by Mark Hamill, the young star who literally rocketed to fame as Luke Skywalker in the hugely successful 'Star Wars' . When his car gets stolen he takes off determined to get it back and the search leads him from Los Angeles to Las Vegas to Mojave.
On the way he meets up with Vanessa, a girl who drives a van that looks more like a bedroom. - not surprising since Venessa - an engaging film debut from Annie Potts - has ideas about getting rich quick by pursuing the oldest profession in the world. Kenny and Venessa team up and the combination leads to all kinds of fun as they fall for each other and over each other on the trail of the no-good carnapper.
