Movie Info

Following the blockbuster success of Smokey and the Bandit, Burt Reynolds, Sally Field and director Hal Needham reunited to make the very similar Hooper, an action-laced comedy about a Hollywood stunt man who enters a dangerous rivalry with a younger stunt man. Hooper (Reynolds) and the younger stunt man (Jan-Michael Vincent) compete in a series of increasingly complex stunts in order to earn the title of "the greatest stunt man alive." Hooper is lightweight, mindless fun that doesn't have much

A highly entertaining tribute to Hollywood stuntmen. The best of the Burt Reynolds-Hal Needham collaborations.

Fantastica Daily

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!

Totally irresponsible 70's machismo fun! Burt Reynolds plays the ultimate Hollywood stunt-man. LOTS of explosions and drunk driving ensue!

I shouldn't like this story of movie stunt drivers, but I did.

Just another "Burt Reynolds" movie. Let's see: Sally Field, a Trans Am and lots of Coors beer. If you were a fan of "The Fall Guy" TV series with Lee Majors, you can probably thank this movie for it's inspiration.
