Burt Reynolds used to make movies about people's lifestyles. Now he seems more interested in making movies that fit in with his own lifestyle.

It's a witless retread of the earlier, far funnier road-movie collaborations of Mr. Needham and Mr. Reynolds.

Burt Reynolds hits new lows as he mugs his way through this film.

A zany cornpone comedy that made me laugh. So sue me.

Fantastica Daily

Burt turned down "Tems of Endearment' to do this one. At least he met Loni.

Nolan's Pop Culture Review

Burt and Ned should be ashaimed of themselves.

Audience Reviews for Stroker Ace

Not a good movie. Not at all. Sorry Burt and Hal, but the magic is gone.

There is something about Burt Reynolds movies that bring me back to a time of cheesy 80's male dominated roles with stupid humor. The thing that makes these movies good is the cheap humor and the bloopers at the end. The thing that makes these really bad is the stupid humor and the bad acting and the fake Burt Reynolds hair. This one is no exception and is just an all around bad movie, but it is funny to watch and remember how horrible 80's action movies really were.
