Stunts, stereotypes, and silliness in beer-fueled car race.

July 30, 2011
Harmless entertainment at its most commercial and least artistic, offering some fun spotting the stars in cameos
Full Review | Original Score: C+
May 5, 2008
Nonsense but fun nevertheless with a crazy ensemble cast of celebrities of the era.

May 5, 2008
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.

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.

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

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.

Inoffensive and sometimes funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 14, 2004
evokes another age before The Fast and the Furious and NASCAR replaced the fun in racing with, respectively, death and science
| Original Score: 2.5/5
February 15, 2004
A movie that should have crashed at the starting line.
| Original Score: 1/5
January 11, 2004
Easier to take than most of Reynolds' other "flying car" epics
| Original Score: 2/5
December 21, 2003
A cheeseball classic in its own right
| Original Score: 4/5
May 24, 2003
Cannonball Run has a strange, straightforward mindless joy to it.
July 26, 2002
Bad stuff, but manages to be fun bad. (Forget the sequel; that's like torture.)
| Original Score: 2.5/5
