"...The performances in this story of three generations of Hollywood stuntmen are a delight....[The] direction and stunt staging are wonderfully crafted..."

"...Reynolds has made a movie to please fans of all persuasions, and to please them a great deal....There is genine humor and tenderness in [Reynolds's] romantic episodes with Sally Field..."
Behind the scenes, stuntmen compete with one another for the title "best in town."

Reynolds vehicle has moments of humor, and the action scenes are energetically photographed.
