Semi-Tough Reviews

August 22, 2016
Well supplied with both raunchy humor and star appeal, particularly in the person of Burt Reynolds, the film seems certain to become a crowd-pleaser.

Semi-Tough may or may not turn out to be the year's best comedy -- there's Annie Hall to remember and Mel Brooks yet to be heard from -- but it is without a doubt the year's most socially useful film.

Semi-Tough begins as a bawdy and lively romantic comedy about slap happy pro football players, then slows down to a too-inside putdown of contemporary self-help programs.

Semi-Tough pokes fun in rambling fashion, but it is vulgar in intelligent ways and almost always amusing in its perceptions of befuddled people who are perfectly healthy but often convinced they're not.
January 25, 2008
A delightful, gentle satire on the American ideal of winning, which also takes broad but often hilarious swipes at fashionable health fads.
