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

Slight yet likable stuntman comedy.

Audience Reviews for Hooper


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.
