Movie Reviews

Good Book, Bad Movie
Lance Rogers | Charlottesville, Virginia | 02/05/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Do yourself a favor, read the book. It is so much better than this nonsense."
Self-help revealed
Fred K. Johnson | Aurora, CO USA | 02/21/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I'm only giving this four stars instead of five. It's not high film art like say Deliverance but it does serve a purpose. If you or a loved one or friend is getting sucked up into the latest self-help guru or movement like the Law of Attraction or Wayne Dyer this is a must see. Semi-Tough parodied Est and many of these things. If you ever considered paying for your "special" mantra this is for you. It is an incredibly funny parody of these movements and gurus. My favorite scene is when Burt Reynolds attends the seminar to "pull its pants down". You are supposed to be in the seminar room and not leave to go to the bathroom. It's the classic cult brainwashing technique of humiliation. But Burt has strapped one of these hunters pee bottles to his leg and you hear the tinkle into the bottle has he has this big grin on his face."

"i found semi tought to be well played out and humorous throughout there was never a dull moment.bert rynolds is one who keeps the movie flowing with his same personality that he had in smoky and the bandit years kris kristofferson is a good at playing off of bert rynolds but the one that holds the movie together is jill clayburgh she is sexy and at the same time logical her carector"
