Aging stuntman Sonney Hooper is still on top as one of the best stuntmen in the business. But up and coming Ski is starting to do bigger and better stunts. Hooper has the experience to setup a stunt safely, and Ski lacks the common sense to know when a stunt is too dangerous. Maybe together, along with their fun loving buddies, they can do a stunt together that will surpass anything that anyone has done. Written by

At the start of the film, just after the opening stunt, Hooper is talking with the director, he turns away and says: "I hate it when directors slobber all over me like that." Cully replies "Well, when your last picture made over a 100 million dollars you don't have to slobber over anybody." This is a reference to the director, Hal Needham
, who made over 100 million dollars with his first picture Smokey and the Bandit
(1977), immediately green lighting the production of "Hooper". See more
