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. Full Review
Rating: D+ -- 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. Full Review
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. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- 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. Full Review
Rating: C+ -- Harmless entertainment at its most commercial and least artistic, offering some fun spotting the stars in cameos Full Review
Rating: 0/4 -- 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. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Inoffensive and sometimes funny.
New York Times
A cross-country car race provides the plot for this action-packed madcap comedy with an all-star cast. The fun continues from coast to coast with the likes of Burt Reynolds, Jackie Chan, Roger Moore, Farrah Fawcett, Dean Martin, Mel Tillis, Sammy Davis Jr., and dozens of others.
- The film spawned a sequel that starred much of the same cast, with the addition of the likes of Susan Anton, Shirley MacLaine, Telly Savalas, and Catherine Bach.
