Some people will enjoy this

You sort of have to like these Hal Needham/Reynolds movies to like this. The plot is weak. The dialog is mildly amusing. I found the whole chicken sponsor thing pretty funny though. Loni Anderson fans might enjoy her ridiculous role as the naive PR person for the chicken chain There's cleavage shown from time to time which some will appreciate I have read the book, and the movie is quite different than the book. The book is a series of stories, possibly tall tales, loosely based on the experiences of the writers in racing. It's mostly about sex, heavy drinking and wrecking/racing cars. I enjoyed it a lot. The book is better than the movie IMO I think Nabors and Reynolds have some funny interactions. Auto racing is rather limited, probably due to cost. But you do get to see some vintage cars and racing footage Just remember this is a silly pointless movie, in the spirit of movies like Smokey and the Bandit and maybe you will enjoy it like I do

It's Burt, whats not to like ?

For racing movie fans, "Stroker Ace" is hard to beat. It's definitely better than Driven and far less effective than Days of Thunder. It offers a comical, honest view of the sport through the life of Stroker Ace, who has secured a ride from a novice car owner intent on leveraging every ounce of Stroker's fame to sell chicken. It's the only race film to cover sponsorship honestly. Few know, Burt Reynolds was a stunt man before making it as an actor. He has always had an affinity for stunt men and this is homage to these icons that entertain us at grave risk to themselves. Hooper is a stunt packed film that is entirely over-the-top in scope from Westerns to bar brawls to cars, you've never seen all of this in one flick. It's a solid movie after all. Overall rating: 7 out of 10.

"Ace": in the hole....

Ever notice how in his later movies Burt Reynolds' laugh sounds like screeching brakes? Must have been hanging out with Hal Needham too much. And from the looks of "Stroker Ace", WAY too much. Can you believe this was based on a book? Neither could I, but it was. And probably not a best-seller, I'll wager. Burt's another good-old-boy in the NASCAR circuit who hitches up with Beatty as a fried chicken magnate with designs on his team. Anderson provides what love interest there is and Nabors does his umpteenth Gomer Pyle impression as faithful mechanic/best friend Lugs. A lot of people here are friends of Burt's or Hal's. Others must have needed the work. And even real NASCAR drivers get in on the act, and look to have more talent than those with SAG cards. As far as laughs go, Bubba Smith (pre-"Police Academy") gets them as Beatty's chauffeur. And Petersen, in full Elvira mode, gets lots of appreciative leers as a lady who wants to get to know Lugs real well. REAL WELL. It's a shame that Burt threw away as much time and effort in a film like "Stroker Ace" where it didn't matter whether he bothered to act or not. They didn't bother to write a character for him, why bother to act? Two stars. Mostly for Petersen, and for the out-takes at the end. Now THEY'RE funny.
