Two friends on opposite sides of the law in the 80's

A story that meanders and sort of goes nowhere despite the best of intentions. Nice cinematography and great cast though, Mel Gibson and Kurt Russell bounce well off each other as two old friends on opposite sides of the law. Michelle Pfeiffer is a perfect addition as the woman they both fall for.

I remember liking this movie when I originally saw it, way back when but this time around not so much. Hideously dated sax music throughout -as all the movies from this time 80s tended to have- was partially to blame but the whole story just felt a bit dry.

On the plus side the cast is superb Raul Julia steals every scene he's in as Carlos the charismatic dealer, Kurt is sleazy with his cocky cop attitude, cigarettes and slicked back hair, determined to get the girl and bring down his old friend. He actually reminded me of Dano from Hawaii five-0. Michelle Pfieiffer is beautiful and lovely as per, a sweet romance there. Yeah poor Mel, nobody will believe he's gone straight.

Nobody Wants Him to Quit

"Dale 'Mac' McKussic" (Mel Gibson) was previously an extremely successful drug dealer who has since retired and is trying to start a new life on his own in a legitimate manner. The problem is that his former main supplier, "Carlos" (Raul Julia) is coming back to Los Angeles and everyone in drug enforcement is firmly convinced that because of that Mac is back in the drug business. This includes his best friend "Nick Frescia" (Kurt Russell) who also happens to be a high-ranking detective in Los Angeles County. To make matters even more complicated, Mac has a crush on a woman by the name of "Jo Ann Vallenari" (Michelle Pfeiffer) who Nick also happens to be in love with as well. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this film came out when all three actors were in the prime of the aforementioned actors were in the prime of their careers and as a result it garnered quite a bit of interest. The movie itself is entertaining but I have to say some of the dialogue could have used a bit of improvement. Again though, it was still a good film for the most part and for that reason I have rated it accordingly. Slightly above average.

noirish eye candy

The only thing I heard about "Tequila Sunrise" back in the '80s was that it had a sexy hot tub scene. Does it ever.

But the movie is more than that. It's the story of friendship and betrayal with some stunning cinematic moments.

Mac Mckussic (Mel Gibson) is a drug dealer trying to go straight. His friend Nick Drescia (Kurt Russell) is the cop investigating him.

Both Mac and Nick are attracted to Jo Ann (Michelle Pfeiffer), the owner of an Italian restaurant. What Nick wants from her, though, is information about Mac's plans. He wants to know more about Mac's drug dealing plans and his connections with a major Mexican dealer, Carlos, whom the police believe is coming to town to meet with Mac.

"Tequila Sunrise" isn't heavy on action, which I suppose is one criticism, and it has some complicated subplots. And I'm not really sure you'd call it a noir - noirish maybe. What makes it interesting are the performances of Gibson, Pfeiffer, Russell -- and their beautiful looks -- and Raul Julia and J.T. Walsh, both marvelous.

Someone described this as a chick flick. It's not hard-hitting like director Towne's classic Chinatown. It draws on some old themes - a love triangle, loyalty, friendship -- and it succeeds on that level. Comparing it to Chinatown won't get you anywhere.
