Variety - 9/10 by Variety Staff Individually, the performances in this story of three generations of Hollywood stuntmen are a delight. And Hal Needham's direction and stunt staging are wonderfully crafted.
New York Times - 6/10 by Janet Maslin Mr. Reynolds has made a movie to please fans of all persuasions, and to please them a great deal.
Washington Post - 2/10 by Gary Arnold People have been mentioning Burt Reyolds and Clark Gable in the same breath for several years now. With Hooper, Reynolds has finally justified the camparison.

It was rumoured the director character in the film was a send up of Peter Bogdanovich who had made two films with Reynolds. The "destruction of Los Angeles" sequence that concludes both The Spy Who Laughed at Danger and Hooper was filmed in the Tuscaloosa, Alabama area, with all but the final rocket car jump shot at the former Craig Air Force Base Hooper enjoyed moderate success at the box office; it was one of the top ten films of 1978, but ultimately the film was deemed a letdown in comparison to Reynolds' Smokey and the Bandit, second only to Star Wars in box office gross the year before. Hooper grossed $78 million domestically, nearly 40% less than the gross of Smokey in 1977 ($126 million). The film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Sound for (Robert Knudson, Robert Glass, Don MacDougall and Jack Solomon) The "blooper reel" credits Hooper was also one of the first movies to make use of the blooper reel credit crawl. The technique, originated by Needham, showed a smaller screen of outtakes from the film to one side while the film's credits scroll slowly up the other side. Needham refined this technique for later films such as Smokey and the Bandit II and the Cannonball Run movies. (In Hooper the credit reel was mostly a montage of many of the stunts performed in the movie itself, owing to the film's tribute to the stunt industry.) It was later adapted into other films, including the CGI animated Toy Story 2 and A Bug's Life, for which the bloopers were intentionally created, and in TV series including The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Home Improvement. Most of Jackie Chan's films also feature blooper reel credit crawls, due to his experience in The Cannonball Run man this is such a great comedy movie 2 watch, its got a great cast throughout this movie....man this is such a really really really funny movie 2 watch, with a great cast throughout this movie it is highley entertaining movie 2 watch as it is so so so so funny movie 2 watch......
User Review - 10/10 by Pj P one of the all time greats featuring the bes bar brawl of all time.
User Review - 10/10 by ur_dean i Behind the scenes of the film world and the life of a top stuntman in his later years. Funny and a good story and some cool stunts. Worth a peek.
User Review - 10/10 by Steve S More comedy with Burt Reynolds and his friends. Pretty good stunts.
User Review - 10/10 by larry one best movies because its a movie in movie
User Review - 10/10 by Steve W Aging stunt man, isn't ready to finish his career just yet, but no hot shot stunt man pushes the old crash and bash man to finish off his last stunt to end all stunts. Well acted, incredible stunts from car crashes, horse falling, airplane diving, falling off buildings all doen without the help of Computer generated images. One of Burt's best and once in a lifetime cast with Sally Fields, Jan Michael Vincent and ADAM WEST! A great homage to those men and ladies of the cinema smash em ups!
User Review - 8/10 by Stormy D A true tribute to the most unrecognized heros in Hollywood, the Stuntman ! Reynolds got his start in films as a stuntman and this is his way of saying thanks. It's a riotous and fun film and really great to watch. Reynolds poking some fun with the film industry.
User Review - 8/10 by Lee P Burt classic.Even so it's based on stuntmen the stunts are fantastic for this movie.
