Editorial Reviews

Stroker Ace/Hooper/Sharky's Machine (DVD) (3FE) (Multi-Title)

Great times with the good ol' boy! Burt Reynolds takes the wheel in Stroker Ace (Disc 1/Side A), a roaring stock-car-racing comedy co-starring Loni Anderson and featuring real-life Daytona International footage. Sally Field teams with Reynolds in Hooper (Disc 1/Side B), the affectionate and much-admired salute to movie stunt people. When the boss says jump...Hooper says how far down? And Atlanta nights have never been hotter than when vice cop Reynolds (who also directs) puts the heat on big-time criminals in the volatile thriller Sharky's Machine (Disc 2). It's a lean, mean, powerful machine, fueled by an enduringly popular star in peak form.

3.5 stars for this one. Since this is a big deal to me, I'll first mention that none of these three films are presented in widescreen format.

Before Schwarzenegger and Stallone, my go-to cinematic action dudes were Clint Eastwood and Burt Reynolds. Now, there's no doubting that Eastwood is the more celebrated actor and director, while Reynolds's flicks are more often dismissed as lightweight and mindless material. There's truth to that. Yet I find plenty of Burt's stuff entertaining. And several of his movies do have some measures of depth (The Longest Yard (Lockdown Edition), Starting Over, etc.). This particular triple feature dvd set focuses on two of his better films, the atmospheric crime thriller SHARKY'S MACHINE and the very good HOOPER. Rounding the set out is STROKER ACE, which isn't as good.

Before the baby, let's get to the bathwater. 1983's STROKER ACE is harmless and vacuous. If you're into auto racing or just into cars running amuck and slamming into each other, then you might enjoy this one. Plenty of dumb jock shenanigans here, and whirls around the motor speedway. Burt, firmly entrenched in his good-old-boy persona, plays Stroker Ace, one of the top stock-car racers around, and, boy, he knows it. But the flamboyant Stroker learns a lesson in humility when he agrees to be sponsored by a fried chicken franchise, as he signs without first reading the contract. It's not too long before he's parading around in a chicken outfit and having "fastest chicken in the South" painted on his race car.

If you want average TV quality, these three movies-in-one are okay. But some reviewers claimed that the "Sharky" supplied is widescreen. IT IS NOT. It also suffers from excessive compression, just like the older single disc Sharky DVD. They compressed it deeply to fit onto a single-layer cheapo DVD media. The ONLY ORIGINAL uncensored version of Sharky's Machine is still - sadly - only available (to the best of my knowledge) on LASERDISC.

Here is an icon in his prime. Stroker Ace may be very silly, but Hooper and Sharkey's Machine are genuine works of art for the era. They set up the framework for action comedy/melodrama for now. I love these movies. I wish Burt could still do what he did. He will always be awesome in my book. One note, I wish these movies were in widescreen.

as a racer myself, i have to say that this is one of the best race films on the market.It has a great cast and is verey funny. Cameo appearances by real Nascar racers makes it even that much better.It reminds me of what it is really like at a race track. If you love racing, this is a must see movie!

Burt Reynolds plays the title character, a cocky racing veteran with a rep as a ladies man, to perfection and Parker Stevenson is the young gun after him on the race track. Jim Nabors, Bubba Smith and Loni Anderson also turn in great performances, working with Stroker Ace's team. There are lots of racing scenes and physical comedy. Stroker Ace needs a sponsor and Ned Beatty, the owner of a fast food chicken franchise, steps in. Stroker becomes known as 'the fastest chicken in the south', which makes him the butt of a lot of jokes at the track. So then he spends the rest of the movie trying to get fired so he doesn't have to do ridiculous things like dress up in chicken suits and cut ribbons at restaurant grand openings. With appearances by some of the biggest drivers of the time like Benny Parsons, Ricky Rudd and the late Dale Earnhardt, this movie is a quirky look inside the world of drivers, sponsors, crew chiefs, the media, the fans and love of the sport.

Reynolds, Beatty, Anderson, Nabors and

even Bubba Smith are very fine in here.

Funny, short Comedy movie about egoman-

iac NASCAR (BACK WHEN THE SPORT WAS worth

watching!) driver and hillbilly friends

and pit crew who keep running out of spon-

sors. Reynolds signs on with fried chicken

magnate Beatty without reading the fine

print of contract, to his dismay. Lonie

and Burt started a relationship after

meeting on this set! Funny, especially

Jerry Reed's critique at the end in

outtakes! Director Hal Needham's best

effort with Reynolds! I really like it.

Burt Reynolds lost his box-office following with this embarrassing NASCAR comedy. "Stroker Ace" (1983) is so incredibly bad that it makes Elvis Presley's "Speedway" look like "Grand Prix." Worse still, you're stuck listening to Jim Nabors sing! One never expects lavish production values from a Reynolds-Hal Needham movie, but utilizing video stock footage shows contempt for the audience and filmmaking in general. Amazingly enough, Reynolds and Needham would reach new cinematic depths with "Cannonball Run II."
