Heat- 1987, directed by R.M. Richards, starring Burt Reynolds and Peter MacNicol

He says-  Dim, dingy, scattershot film (written by William Goldman, of all people) about a Las Vegas tough, whose exact livelihood is never defined, but who knows how to handle the low-lifes--and teaches "protege" MacNicol all he knows.  So what?  BOMB

I say-  Good.  I thought I missed something in not knowing exactly what Burt Reynolds did for a living.  This was a really dumb movie.  It felt like I was watching a tv show episode a la Miami Vice.  Just terrible.  Burt thinks he's tough, but I laughed at him the whole way.  BOMB
