Semi-Tough (1977)/Gator (1976)
First, the goofy gridiron comedy "Semi-Tough" (1977) stars Burt Reynolds and Kris Kristofferson as pro football teammates who find themselves competing for the attentions of team owner's daughter Jill Clayburgh. This rousing adaptation of Dan Jenkins' novel also stars Robert Preston, Roger E. Mosley, Brian Dennehy, and Bert Convy as a self-help guru. Next, "Gator" (1976) is Reynolds' fast-paced sequel to "White Lightning," continuing the adventures of moonshine runner "Gator" McKlusky. Here, federal agent Jack Weston gets him to help expose some corrupt politicians. Lauren Hutton and Jerry Reed co-star in this good ol' comedy/thriller. 3 3/4 hrs. total on two discs. Standard/Widescreen; Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital mono, Spanish Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English, French, Spanish.
