Hot Stuff is a 1979 comedy film that starred Dom DeLuise, Suzanne Pleshette, Jerry Reed and Ossie Davis. DeLuise also directed the movie, and the song "Hot Stuff" was written and performed by Reed.

The script was co-written by best-selling crime novelist Donald E. Westlake.[1]

Plot[edit]

Miami police detectives Ernie, Louise and Doug (played by DeLuise, Pleshette and Reed), frustrated at their inability to convict the criminals they arrest, decide to set up a sting as a fencing operation to trap criminals in a pawn shop, recording the illegal transactions on the (then) new technology of videotape.

With less than helpful support from their captain (Davis), the trio decides to re-sell some of their stolen items to stay in business. Trouble follows as they run afoul of the local mob boss. Doug sees his car destroyed by a bomb (and laments "I just had it washed"), he and the others have a shootout with gun runners at a waterfront condominium construction site, and they ultimately arrest the criminals en masse at a party.
