Billy Clyde Puckett

On the one hand, we loved 1970’s Burt Reynolds and his slimy, yet undisputable charm. We also love the name “Billy Clyde Puckett” as one of the all-time greatest sports character names. On the other hand, the common criticism for Semi-Tough is that for a movie that looks like it is about Football; it really isn’t. Rather it is a love triangle set on the backdrop of a gridiron with a spoof on New Age thinking (which doesn’t exactly age well). We’ll say this, Reynolds got the girl in the end, so….victory for the Bandit?
