About the Movie

Academy Award-winning superstar Mel Gibson ("Maverick," "Lethal Weapon" series), Kurt Russell ("Tombstone," "Tango and Cash") and Academy Award-nominee Michelle Pfeiffer ("Dangerous Minds," "Batman Returns") star in this steamy, romantic thriller which explores the relationship between two longtime friends -- one a drug dealer looking for a way out, and the other, a cop assigned to trap his friend. Caught between them -- and powerfully drawn to both -- is the beautiful Michelle Pfeiffer. Written and directed by Academy Award-winner Robert Towne ("The Firm," "Chinatown") and co-starring Golden Globe-winner Raul Julia ("Addams Family Values," "Kiss of the Spider Woman"), this is "a hot and intoxicating, sexy sizzler with three of the most exciting performers on screen at any one time," says WWOR-TV. At the Movies calls it "a sexy, tough, two-fisted thriller."

good movie

I don't say this wrecklessly - there are a handful of movies where the stars literally glow - meaning, in their prime - looking great. Don't miss this one to see a fantastic looking mel gibson. If it's all the movie offered, and it's not, it would be enough for any heterosexual female.

Great classic movie!!!

Fun & romantic movie!

Tequila Sunrise - one of my favorite movies-Pls allow buy

This movie is fantastic. I want to buy it, not rent. Basic plot line but great character study with loads of steamy chemistry flying around with Gibson, Pfeiffer, and Russell. Fantastic eye candy with sarcastic humor sprinkled throughout. Raul Juia is great and holds his own as a sexy 'bad guy'

Itunes, Put this up for purchase please.
