Overview

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

    Sometimes nostalgia plays tricks on you

    I remembered this movie being really funny. But it's not. It's stupid.

    The Cannonball Run

    This has all the actors and actresses that were famous then and sorta now with a very young Jackie Chan. This is about a race to California and the prize is money where you have all sorts of people competing leaving a lot of comedic moments.

    important!

    This movie's ultimate significance is that Jackie Chan got the idea to show out-takes during his films' credits from it (according to Jackie's autobiography). Ironically, in this movie it's mostly flubbed lines that they show -- in Jackie Chan's films, outtakes usually include flubbed stunts, which are often funny, sometimes harrowing. He has done this in every film he's made since appearing in this one; it's become a Jackie Chan signature. Of course, Jackie is not used to his full effect in Cannonball, but it's fun anyway. At least he gets to save the day at the end.
