08.24.07Netflix OK, the fact that Burt Reynolds plays a stuntman doubling for ADAM WEST alone - No further info needed - makes this movie awesome. Even with Airwolf skulking around... I don't care. Burt doubling Adam is just about the greatest thing ever. And Adam really rubs it in. In practically every shot he has a woman under each arm like his mustache is fooling anybody. The only thing that would've made it better is if instead them making a bond rip-off if it was the old Batman TV show. But whatever, even so... talking about tickling my fancy.

After that, eh... it was alright. It seems pretty stuntsploitationy to me but what it loses in inaccuracy it gains in Burt-style good times. It's kind of hard for me to imagine top-of-the-line biggest-star-in-the-world Burt because basically for my whole life his career's been going downhill, but watching this movie made me think about how huge he must have been circa 78 when i was getting birthed. I'm pretty surprised there aren't more guys my age named Burt. Was it like too much pressure sort of like naming your kid Elvis? or was Burt the sort of star you didn't mind thinking about at night but wouldn't want to have to put a walking reminder of those thoughts through school and take care of him for 18 years? Who knows... there should be more Burts though. I don't think I know a single Burt.

So this movie was fun enough to watch but nothing mind-blowing.
