In this action-laced comedy, Hollywood stunt man Hooper and a younger stunt man compete in a series of increasingly complex stunts in order to earn the title of "the greatest stunt man alive." This film doesn't have much story, but everyone involved looks like they're having fun.

Critic Reviews for Hooper
A highly entertaining tribute to Hollywood stuntmen. The best of the Burt Reynolds-Hal Needham collaborations.
Slight yet likable stuntman comedy.
Guilty pleasure stunt-guy flick. Worth it for the final stunt of the film.
Any film with Robert Klein as the villain can't be all bad
Audience Reviews for Hooper
Fueled on high-testosterone, pride and beer, this Smokey and the Bandit side-step is a mix of cheese, action, unnecessary violence and irresponsible stunts. They don't make these types of films anymore, mainly because assaulting policemen, drink driving and head-butting fruit-machines is now generally frowned upon and rules of averages say if they'd carry on much longer people would die and at best loose limbs, but it doesn't half make me wish I could be a grown up for just one day in 1978. Where are you Burt Reynolds, the world needs more of you!More
Totally irresponsible 70's machismo fun! Burt Reynolds plays the ultimate Hollywood stunt-man. LOTS of explosions and drunk driving ensue!More
