Rating: 1.5/4 -- The first in the series and the best of a lousy lot. Full Review

Rating: B- -- Bandit has a pronounced Southern charm and smash-em fervor that aids in the digestion of an otherwise overly silly enterprise that's way too permissive with its on-screen talent. Full Review

Hal Needham's direction was well paced and deft and I came out wanting to get a CB (and that's not DeMille). Full Review

Despite a thin premise for an action-comedy road chase, the film's enthusiasm makes up for its lack of ideas. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- [This] Southern-fried romp has a big personality and an infectious sense of fun that makes it worth taking for another spin. Full Review

Product Description:

Burt Reynolds stars as the Bandit in this seminal portrayal of rough-ridin', beer-swillin', sheriff-dodgin', trouble-chasin' truckers. The Bandit's has taken on his craziest haul yet: a trailer full of Coors beer. If he can deliver the goods from Texarcana to Atlanta within forty-eight hours, he'll be $80,000 richer. Hilarious mayhem ensues, however, when the Bandit falls for a runaway bride (Sally Field). As they push toward Atlanta, the two have to evade Fields' vengeful father-in-law, Texas Sheriff Buford T. Justice (Jackie Gleason as the maniac "Smokey" of the title). The stakes get higher and the car chases more frenzied in this hysterical romp through the American highways. Charismatic performances by Reynolds and Gleason made this a huge box office draw. ITA winner. Academy Award Nominations: Best Film Editing.

Plot Synopsis:

This comedy cult classic from the 1970s stars Burt Reynold as the Bandit, a high rolling trucker and moonshine runner who stands to win $80,000 simply by transporting a truck-full of beer from Georgia to Texas -- providing he makes it in 28 hours. On the way he has to evade the notorious Sheriff Buford T. Justice. But when the Bandit picks up Carrie, sheriff Justice's soon-to-be daughter-in-law, the race becomes much more personal for the lawman.
