The trailer for this movie looked quite good but it turned out to be average at best.

SPOILER ALERT:
Renee invites her friend jenna to a lakeside cabin for the weekend as three years earlier jenna was trapped in a car crash with her boyfriend jamie as he slowly died of his injuries and had to wait with his dead body until help arrived which has left jenna traumatised and on medication.They go to the cabin with renee's boyfriend michael & his friend ian who's uncle wade owns the cabin,when they arrive wade tells them to make themselves at home as he won't be around for while because he has to go and help set up the fireworks for the festival in town that they are all planning to attend that night.The group then explore the cabin & surrounding buildings where they discover a homemade sauna built by wade & decide to try it out.After a while they get too hot & go swimming in the lake where michael who's a bit stoned at this point has a argument with renee and as the other three go back in the sauna michael storms off to help wade.Once jenna,ian & renee decide to leave the sauna they realise they can't open the door but just think it's michael messing around but as the temperature continues to rise all three start to panic.This is when we get the usual arguments & fighting etc,aswell as jenna halucinating because she hasn't taken her tablets & the claustrophobia is reminding her of being trapped in a car with her dead boyfriend.It ends with wade arriving back at the cabin and saving the girls from the sauna by unblocking the door which is when we see in a flashback scene that michael had accidentlly knocked over some stuff because he was high and blocked the sauna door.The girls are taken away by the paramedics on stretchers as jenna & renee hold hands.5/10

Jenna (Scout Taylor-Compton) whose boyfriend is killed in the confusing opening scene agrees to come "out of her comfort zone" (clever play on words) and go to a remote cabin owned by Uncle Wade (Tyler Mane) a man who loves the noble weed. Jenna goes with Renee (Christina "hot pink bikini" Ulloa) her idiot boyfriend Michael (Michael Copon) and Ian (Travis Van Winkle). It doesn't take long for the three of them (minus Michael) to get trapped in a sauna.

I had trouble attempting to figure out what the first killing had to do with the script or where "247" came into this thing as we don't get to see any indication of heat. The film is slow developing and once things start to happen, it is still slow and must be filled in with outside events and flashbacks. The acting wasn't particularly bad, but the script was downright awful.

If you want to see a better film that has 247 degrees in the title, try "247 Degrees North." If you want to see a better film about people locked in a sauna, try "The Steam Experiment." Or if you want to see a better movie where people have sex to classical music: "A Clockwork Orange."

I should have turned it off after I saw the confusing opening, "based on true events" and "3 years later."

Parental Guide: F-bomb, brief sex, no nudity.

247 Degrees Fahrenheit is a film based on a true story set in the Republic of Georgia. Four friends travel to a cabin by the lake, in this cabin is a sauna. They decide to make use of the sauna whilst in it one of the friends decides he needs to use the bathroom (he had been drinking and smoking pot earlier), as he leaves he knocks something other that blocks the door thus trapping his friends inside. Afterwards he falls asleep.

His friends still trapped in the sauna realise what has happened and frantically shout for help but to no avail, nobody can hear them because their friend is asleep and the owner of the cabin is out at a party which they were supposed to attend. When their friend wakes up he looks everywhere but the sauna for his friends and thinks they left him for the party.

Those who are trapped in the sauna are getting more and more frantic they smash a small window in the door to get some air, and as time progresses they smash the thermostat hoping it will cool down the sauna, alas it has the opposite affect making it get even hotter.

Several hours pass before the owner of the cabin returns realizes what happened and rescues them.

I can see why people might think negatively of the film, its a suspense thriller rather than a high octain action movie. The events mostly take place inside the sauna much as in Phonebooth the events take place around the phone booth. Overall the ending was a little abrupt the film ends almost directly after the rescue with some scenes of ambulances taking the injured to hospital.

Not as bad as expected. I felt very hot in myself just watching the movie, is really claustrophobic and nail biting and is worth a watch!! Not bad but not brilliant(some parts were just slow...) don't get drunk or high because you won't know where you're friends are....

Fun and interesting film but when it gets down to the nitty gritty the moral of the story is don't be stupid and do drugs otherwise a film like this gets made. Acting and story were good.

Not the best, not the worst. Acting and script are mediocre. If its cheap and you got some free time i see no reason not to watch it but dont expect a hollywood blockbuster
