RAD
1986, 91 min, USA, Dir: Hal Needham

Cru Jones is just a small town newspaper delivery boy, but he has dreams of being a professional BMX bike rider. When an opportunity arises for him to qualify for the Helltrack - the ultimate BMX race - he puts his fate in gear to make his dreams come true, finding help and love along the way from semi-pro rider Christian (Lori Loughlin). Directed by stunt legend and Burt Reynold’s right-hand man Hal Needham, RAD is an exciting ride that lives up to its name.


HOOPER
1978, Warner Bros., 99 min, USA, Dir: Hal Needham

From its opening to its "blooper reel" credits (which were among the first used in film), HOOPER takes viewers on a wildly entertaining ride.
