Semi-Tough

1977 / 108min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: MICHAEL RITCHIE

CAST: BURT REYNOLDS, KRIS KRISTOFFERSON, JILL CLAYBURGH

Working from Dan Jenkins’s satirical novel, Ritchie (The Candidate, Smile) crafts this superb rom-com spoof of the 1970s-era human potential movement featuring Reynolds and Kris Kristofferson as Billy Clyde and Shake Tiller, NFL teammates and roommates forced by manager Robert Preston to add daughter Jill Clayburgh to their household, a touchy situation complicated still further by the fact that Shake is in the midst of exploring his feelings through a self-realization program.

Semi-Tough is screening as part of the series Burt Reynolds.
