Movie Info

Burt Reynolds directed and starred in this actioner from an Elmore Leonard novel about an ex-con living dangerously close to the drug traffickers in Miami. When Stick (Reynolds) arrives in Miami just out of prison, an old buddy of his is murdered, sending Stick on a wild and complex journey to track down the killers. Along the way, he meets the attractive Kyle (Candice Bergen), has to deal with Chucky (Charles Durning in a blond wig and loud tourist shirts), a mob go-fer, and the albino Moke (Dar Robinson). In order to better zap his enemies, Stick gets a job as chauffeur to rich Palm Beach underworld figure Barry (George Segal) -- and the plot coils and twists from there until the bad guys get their due.more

The unfairly maligned Stick is actually a very good underworld thriller with Burt Reynolds at his absolute coolest.

October 10, 2005
Fantastica Daily

A pretty awful Elmore Leonard adaptation.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

Burt Reynolds tries to direct. He fails miserably. Makes a good drinking game.
