      60% Tomatometer 5 Reviews 21-year-old BILLY BURNETT is aimless and unmotivated, but he does have a dream: to become a pro jet skier. After a jet ski stunt goes bad and Billy destroys his dad's prized '69 Camaro, dad is furious but fate intervenes in the form of Camel Towing's tow truck operator, DANNY "DOG" BASSETT. Dog concocts a plan to solve everything -- "Send Billy on the Pro Jet Ski Tour!" "You'll look like the supportive Dad, be rid of Billy for the summer, and save your marriage all in one shot." Dad agrees and Dog convinces his longtime friend, legendary five-time world champion, JARED HARPER, to join the team as Billy's coach. The team soon embarks on the ultimate summer road trip, but it doesn't take long for Billy's reckless attitude to wear thin with Jared. To add to the conflicts, Billy also falls for the women's world champion, KELLY WEBER. Kelly is also a forbidden love, the ex-girlfriend of men's world champion, RICHARD HURT, a ruthless rider that will do anything to win. The laughs and the conflicts escalate, but Billy eventually begins to come of age, showing his championship abilities. However, Richard won't go down without a fight and retaliates by destroying Billy's equipment and his dreams. The forlorn team returns home and all seems lost. Then Jared has a heart-to-heart talk with Billy's dad who agrees to an unselfish move that sends the team back for the highly anticipated championship event, where a knock-down, drag-out, winner-takes-all battle unfolds. It's an edge-of-your-seat finale, filled with surprises! Read More Read Less

      Matt Brunson Film Frenzy There's a chubby, diarrhea-prone horndog who simply wants to get laid. This being a male wish-fulfillment film, one guess who lands a beautiful girlfriend before it’s all over. Rated: 2/4 Jun 15, 2022 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com A solid directing debut for veteran stuntman Rippenkroeger. Rated: 2.5/4.0 Sep 6, 2021 Full Review Erik Childress eFilmCritic.com Hot Water is so stuck in a rut of its own intentions that it is impossible to either laugh or care about anything or anyone on screen. Rated: 1/5 May 18, 2021 Full Review Loren King Loren King For audiences seeking daredevil action sequences on the water and some lightweight highjacks on land, "Hot Water" is, in the motivational words of the Dog, "in it to win it." May 14, 2021 Full Review Carissa Pavlica TV Fanatic Rippenkroeger's love of the sport and his experience with stunts is on full, exhilarating display.
