The trucker movie to end all trucker movies. I defy you to show me someone more badass than Burt Reynolds in this film, along with his badass car and his super sexy and badass co-star Sally Field. And you can't forget the man in the truck who went through so much shit, Mr. Jerry Reed.
One of the best big budgeted car crash extravaganza movies with a charming Burt Reynolds in a cowboy hat, a nonstop talking Sally Field in a wedding dress, a stupid sheriff with son and lots of cars getting demolished. One of the best of it's kind.
When I just want to chill out and have a good time, this is a film that I'll go to. It's just ninety-some minutes of sheer fun and excitement. What it might lack in refined filmmaking, it makes up for in pure energy. You got Burt Reynolds at his most charismatic, Jerry Reed being his usual fun self, and the always great Sally Field and Jackie Gleason. It's just a thoroughly enjoyable ride.
