Robert Ray Manning Jr.,
This a very smart sports comedy that brings in American obsessions, the Malibu class system, racism, sexism and celebrity culture-- but would you expect less from Albert S. Ruddy, who co-wrote the script with "Tabloid Baby" author Burt Kearns and Malibu celebrity Brett Hudson?
Ruddy has two Best Picture Oscars-- for The Godfather and Million Dollar Baby-- and in fact, this is the follow-up to his latest Oscar!
Great care has obviously gone into Burt Reynolds' first starring role in years. The character of Billy Cole is an extension of Paul Crew from The Longest Yard (another Ruddy production), and the rascal of Cannonball Run (Ruddy again!). Reynolds lives this part, and he interacts well with a huge ensemble cast of young hot talent.
Gabrielle Reece is a wonder! An Amazon beauty with great comic timing. Angie Everhart gives it her all as a stripper who's seen it all-- until she sees Billy's latest idea. And Paul Rodriguez plays a phony "Chinaman" because "In Malibu, if you're Mexican, you're a gardener, but if you're Asian, you're a landscape artist." They will be writing college dissertations on this one.
There's a lot to this movie-- and Gary Busey, too!
And it starts with a script that almost directs itself. This one goes on the cool sports movie shelf, next to North Dallas Forty, Hooisers, Bull Durham and Blue Crush!
