Movie Info

Former stuntman Hal Needham made his directorial debut with the first Smokey and the Bandit (1977) and repeated his success with the sequel, a virtual remake that substituted a live elephant for a truckload of beer. Burt Reynolds returns as law-defying anti-hero Bandit, now a washed-up alcoholic whose girlfriend Carrie (Sally Field) has left him. When a pair of eccentric, wealthy brothers named Big Enos (Pat McCormick) and Little Enos (Paul Williams) approach Bandit with an offer of work, he and

How can I say it's lazy when it has 50 trucks doing stunts in it? Because it takes a lot less thought to fill up a movie with stunts than to create a comedy that's genuinely funny.

Fizzles badly after a hilarious first half-hour or so.

Audience Reviews for Smokey and the Bandit II

A really dumb movie. Maybe if you're drunk or high you'll find it funny. Most scenes are just ridiculous and for the most part pointless. Just a bad case of trying too hard to be funny. Didn't even like the cop/truck smash-fest at the end. Stupid.

A little less fun and a lot more dumb. The inclusion of Dom DeLuise was welcome but it was just a shame he wasn't on form. My favourite bit was the little cartoon of them driving round the universal logo, so that probably tells you everything you need to know, although the over the top car smash up at the end is still pretty cool.

    1. Bandit: Do you have any diesel fuel?
    2. Everglades Attendant: If I had any more diesel fuel they'd make me join that 'OPEC'.
    3. Bandit: I guess you want me to pump it myself?
    4. Everglades Attendant: If you want any!
