Movie Review by Ryan Midnight
December 15th, 2007

Hard-Boiled Plot: Legendary trucker Bandit and his friend Snowman take on a psychotic offer to make a run from Georgia to Texas and back with 400 cases of beer in twenty-eight hours. Along the way, Bandit picks up a runaway bride, gets in the crosshairs of a Texas sheriff, and causes more property damage than a hurricane.

The Essentials: Hal Needham (CANNONBALL RUN) sets up a slapstick comedy with cars that features breakneck speed, jumps, crashes in his directorial debut. Burt f*ckin' Reynolds proves once again he is the only straight man not in porn that can wield a mustache and look good, Sally Field reminds us she was once had a great ass, and Jackie Gleason not only makes being a redneck bigot hilarious but also heartwarming.

The Verdict? You've caught snippets of this while channel surfing for years. Isn't it time you finally took the time to sit down and watch the whole thing?
