Burt Reynolds, love him or hate him, where do you stand? Long gone from the new release list, Burt Reynolds still is memorable for his portrayals of lovable Southern redneck characters in "Smokey and the Bandit" and "Stroker Ace." How well is he fairing with a younger generation of Americans, as well as those of us well into our dotage!

A great actor in the right kind of role(s). He played a great part in the movie Striptease and Boogie Nights for some more "recent" roles.

He is what I consider a performer, rather than an actor.

Smokey and The Bandit was badass, but only the first one. The other two really dragged it down. I've loved that movie since I was a child.

I'm looking forward to summer, a friend of mine bought an '81 Trans Am, black on black, and it's coming out to the shows n' stuff this summer.

That could be. Orconn is 66, and I suppose Burt is somewhere around that age.

Burt Reynolds looks silly in adventure movies with his walker and oxygen tank. He's older than I am.

Burt Reynolds wishes he was 66.........

He's closer to 76, yet tries to look 36........

Smokey and the Bandit one of the best films ever.

Some of the lines in that movie are awesome, although granted they mostly came from the sheriff...

I am opposed to Burt Reynolds (except in Deliverance).

Burt Reynolds is like James Garner, Elaine Stritch and Rex Harrison. No matter what part they're playing, it's always the same character.

I enjoyed Burt's roles/movies. Nobody is mentioning the Cannonball movies :cookoo:. I'm 38, the younger crowd would probably think he was a dork. I don't know.
