From Michael Ritchie, the director of Prime Cut, The Candidate, The Bad News Bears, Fletch and The Couch Trip comes this romantic sports-comedy about a three-way friendship between two free-spirited professional football players and the team owner’s daughter. Starring screen legends Burt Reynolds (White Lightning, Gator), Kris Kristofferson (Convoy, Vigilante Force) and Jill Clayburgh (An Unmarried Woman, Starting Over), Semi-Tough is an uproarious and bawdy comic free-for-all. Barbara Jane (Clayburgh) and wayward football players Billy Clyde (Reynolds) and Shake (Kristofferson) have been best friends for years. But when Shake finds enlightenment with a wacky philosophy called “IT,” Barbara Jane finds herself falling in love with his new confidence. Soon engaged, Shake and Barbara Jane make a dash for the altar. But as Billy Clyde watches from the sidelines, he suddenly realizes that he wants Barbara Jane too. And when Shake begins to have second thoughts about marriage, Billy Clyde discovers that to score true love, sometimes all you need is a sporting chance and all the right moves. The hilarious cast includes Robert Preston (Junior Bonner), Bert Convy (The Cannonball Run), Roger E. Mosley (TV’s Magnum P.I.), Lotte Lenya (From Russia with Love), Richard Masur (Scavenger Hunt), Carl Weathers (Force 10 from Navarone), Brian Dennehy (F/X), and Ron Silver (Blue Steel), along with a host of real NFL players.
