Stroker Ace, 30 May 1999
Author: Tim Cox from Marietta, OH

Dreary comedy with Reynolds wasting himself on silly gags as a NASCAR driver going head to head with fried chicken mogul Beatty. Burt even dresses like a chicken and that's pretty much how the film operates. Jim Nabors won a much deserved Razzie for his performance and Anderson is neither sexy nor talented. Burt and director Needham's streak of films came to a crashing halt soon after this mess.
