Burt Reynolds stars as Hooper, an aging over the hill stunt man, who is wrestling with this fact when an up and coming stunt man comes to challenge his ego. This is a lighthearted comedy that while shows some of the realities of the business (pain killers, surgeries and injuries) does so in a way that is not preachy but still effective. A classic pride vs. reality, old vs. new fable with some good laughs along the way. If you do not like dated movies (i.e. you can def. tell when this movie was filmed) then you will not like this. Some great stuntwork for its day, which for your information is the line of work Burt did before becoming a movie star.
