The movie doesn't go beyond repeating a formula of parallel stories. [Full Review in Spanish]

Cannonball Run exists somewhere in between being a last bastion of an 'old boys' Hollywood comedy, versus offering a wry send-up of those values.

Take it as pure escapism executed by giddy performers, and it's passable entertainment. Otherwise, it's a rough cross-country ride of indulgence and automobile mayhem, perhaps best suited for a Saturday morning cartoon.

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
May 5, 2008
Nonsense but fun nevertheless with a crazy ensemble cast of celebrities of the era.

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.

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!'

It doesn't get any better or BIGGER than this

If it wasn't for the blooper reel at the end, this would get no stars.
November 6, 2004
A total waste of time.

AAA calculates better road trips.
October 23, 2004
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.

evokes another age before The Fast and the Furious and NASCAR replaced the fun in racing with, respectively, death and science
