The Cannonball Run ()

directed by
featuring Burt Reynolds, Roger Moore, Farrah Fawcett, Dom DeLuise, Dean Martin

Burt Reynolds and director Hal Needham team up for the fourth time, this time bringing an all-star cast of characters on a cross-country car race in the vein of 1976 release The Gumball Rally. The police are the least of the Cannonballers' worries as they push the pedal to the metal in a race from Connecticut to California. Reynolds stars as J.J. McClure, a speed-loving racer disguised as an ambulance driver to outsmart the police. He is paired up with Dom Deluise, who plays his dimwitted sidekick Victor and who, on occasion, dons the suit of Captain Chaos. Rat Packers Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr. join the lineup as Ferrari-driving priests, while martial arts expert Jackie Chan takes on one of his first U.S. film roles driving a souped-up Subaru. Among the many other stars are Roger Moore doing a parody of his 007 character, complete with secret devices and weapons, Farrah Fawcett as Pamela, a woman McClure and Chaos pick up, and Jamie Farr as a deranged Islamic sheik. Jack Elam joins the cast as a crazed proctologist along for McClure's ambulance ride, and Needham makes a cameo as a patient. Rachel Koetje, Rovi Hide synopsis

Still funny after all these years

by Susan E on Jun 20, 2013

If you like fun in a movie, this hits the mark. We bought it after seeing the Auto museum in Saratoga Springs NY which has a display based on the true story of the Cannonball Run. The movie is loosely based on fact- but with all the flourish only Hollywood can imbue. A terrific cast and lots of clean excitement- a good movie, without violence!- for family movie night.

Fine Movie

by David L on Jan 18, 2013

This was a funny and entertaining movie. I will get the sequel. The road race was a fine idea to convey the humor in the stunts.
