Critic Reviews for Speed Zone

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

Cars are not funny. Speeding cars are not funny. It is not funny when a car spins around and speeds in the other direction. It is not funny when a car flies through the air. It is not funny when a truck crashes into a car.

The third Cannonball Run film is a mind-numbingly abysmal, cheapo Canadian production starring John Candy and a bunch of C and D listers. Might make a good answer to a trivia question, but this little-known sequel is truly pathetic.

They were going to call it Cannonball Run 3, but nobody involved with this production could count that high.

Audience Reviews for Speed Zone

Yawn. Not to much hilarious comedy about the Cannonball Run cross-country road race.

I'm not a huge fan of Cannonball Run. In a recent bout of nostalgia I decided to give the original a watch and was surprised at how unfunny it actually was. So I then gave the "Canadian Cannonball Run" a go and was unsurprised at how unfunny it was.
But the odd thing is, though I don't find either comedy that funny, yet I still don't dislike them. With both films it's fun to see the various celebrities poke fun at themselves and generally act like goofballs. You may not laugh, but they seem harmless enough in the most uncritical sense.
