Dir. Hal Needham. 1978. 99 minutes. 35mm. With Burt Reynolds, Jan-Michael Vincent, Sally Field, and Brian Keith. Two recently departed greats, Burt Reynolds and Jan-Michael Vincent, star in this warm, wry, ambling action-comedy about the intergenerational rivalry between two movie stuntmen: Reynolds’s seasoned top dog and Vincent’s hungry up-and-comer. Hal Needham, himself a second-unit stunt veteran, moves things along at an amiable lope, following scenes of high-flying derring-do with those of lazy romantic banter between Reynolds and a very charming Field, or boozy hang-outs that evoke the films of Howard Hawks. With Robert Klein as an egomaniacal director who may or may not be a burlesque of Peter Bogdanovich, and a shoot-the-works finish that includes an absolutely suicidal rocket car jump.
