Lousy, inane and dull sequel is everything the first one should have been. Burt Reynolds and Sally Field are nowhere to be found in this and Jerry Reed, as likeable as his music persona is in 3 minutes or less, just can't hold up an entire movie on his own. he is better suited in the sidekick role. Jackie Gleason, uproarious in the first, is reduced to hamming it up in a sad and desperate attempt to get laughs. And the music is annoying whereas the music in the first and even the second one is great. Just a sad cash grab all around. Typical of Universal pictures to take something fun and ram it into the ground in mediocrity (Jaws 2,3,4 anyone? Jurassic Park 2 and 3? More American Grffiti? Fast & the Furious 37?) Sure the original is not "Citizan Kane" but it had a wicked sense of fun.
