Movie Info

(Burt Reynolds) as J.J. McClure takes off across the country again in this rickety sequel to Cannonball Run. A sheik has offered $1,000,000 to the first driver to reach a destination in Connecticut from Redondo Beach, California, inspiring J.J. and others to go for the gold. With cameos from more name performers than any dozen films together, (Frank Sinatra and the rat pack, Telly Savalas, Susan Anton, Shirley MacLaine, Jackie Chan, Sid Caesar, Marilu Henner, Catherine Bach, etc., etc., etc.),

Execution is uninspired, laughs are hard to find, and the script is also difficult to locate.

There are nun jokes, mafia jokes, big breast jokes, karate jokes, Jaws jokes, more big breasts. It's a long ride.

Cannonball Run II is one of the laziest insults to the intelligence of moviegoers that I can remember. Sheer arrogance made this picture.

Directed in slam-bang style by Hal Needham, the film is an endless string of cameo performances from a cast whose funny participants are badly outnumbered and whose television roots are unmistakable.

The movie is a genuine cultural artifact, a relic given to us by a band of entertainers from long ago, who live in self-imposed exile in the dusty, neon hellhole of Las Vegas.

This is an easy, madcap, guilty pleasure that plays like a hyperactive cross between Wacky Races and The Dukes of Hazard.

June 4, 2013 Full Review Source: Film4

Directionless sequel that once again proves that the pictures that are the most fun to make aren't necessarily the most fun to watch.

A lazy, sloppily made sequel that doesn't play quite as badly now as it did in 1984. Besides, it's hard to hate a movie that casts Jim Nabors as Homer Lyle.

Feels like home movie footage of a celebrity barbecue that you weren't invited to.

A sputtering comedy.

Audience Reviews for Cannonball Run II

I think this is more fun than the original with even more over the top action, fights and lovely cars.

Normally Hollywood sequels take a financially successful movie and make an inferior sequel. Here they just made a sequel that was EXACTLY the same as the original. Laziness does not begin to describe...

This was just to see how many people they asked to appear in the movie would actually show up to the set.

Another crazy car race around America, spacing out some good gags and some jokey lines from all-cast stars. Giant Richard Kiel and martial-artist Jackie Chan are cool and funny as partners of car race in the battle scenes.
