Smokey and the Bandit 1977

From Amazon: It's easy to assume this is just another dumb redneck comedy from Burt Reynolds's years of underachievement. But it's not bad as a dumb redneck comedy at all. Directed by career stuntman Hal Needham, Smokey and the Bandit is just a goofy chase starring a bunch of Reynolds's Hollywood cronies.

According to a memorable line from the 1984 cult classic This is Spinal Tap, there exists "...a fine line between stupid and clever." The same might be said about longtime stuntman Hal Needham's directorial career, even though his debut in the director's chair became one of the surprise hits of 1977. Newly reissued on DVD,...
