A.B. II: The Return's rating of the film Smokey and the Bandit

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.
