Nonsense but fun nevertheless with a crazy ensemble cast of celebrities of the era.

Amiable, lightweight fun. Captain Chaos saves the day.

My review at the time of release heralded this as, 'Wow! Whatta movie!' -- I am now officially amending that to: 'Wow! Amusing junk!'

Cannonball Run has a strange, straightforward mindless joy to it.

Bad stuff, but manages to be fun bad. (Forget the sequel; that's like torture.)

| Original Score: 2.5/5

Somehow it's all totally watchable.

Harmless entertainment at its most commercial and least artistic, offering some fun spotting the stars in cameos

Full of terribly inside showbiz jokes and populated by what could be called Burt and Hal's Rat Pack, film takes place in that redneck never-never land where most of the guys are beer-guzzling good ole boys and all the gals are fabulously built tootsies.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

This wholly derivative car-chase movie provides a flimsy excuse for good ol' boy Burt Reynolds to cavort on-screen with a cast that's chock-full of familiar faces.

The last five minutes, when they show out-takes of flubbed lines, etc, are hysterical. The rest is strictly for those willing to pay for a series of TV chat show performances.

If it wasn't for the blooper reel at the end, this would get no stars.

The Cannonball Run is an abdication of artistic responsibility at the lowest possible level of ambition. In other words, they didn't even care enough to make a good lousy movie.
