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.
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.
