Larry Rayder is an aspiring NASCAR driver, Deke Sommers is mechanic. As they feel they collectively are the best, the only thing that is holding them back is money to build the best vehicle possible. As such, they decide to rob a supermarket's office of the money in its safe to pursue their dream. On the most part, their robbery is successful, although their plan breaks down in its end phase, which doesn't allow them as much getaway time as they wanted. Another problem they face is an unexpected third person in their getaway, Larry's one night stand Mary Coombs, who doesn't like the fact that Larry ran off on her, although she eventually also says that she doesn't want any of the money. With a police scanner and two-way radio in their souped up Dodge Charger, they try to outrun the police, who have an identification of their vehicle, and a general description of the three. The police pursuit is led by the tenacious Sheriff Everett Franklin, who knows he and his team can catch them, ... Written by Huggo

Quotes

Everett Franklin: [in helicopter pursuing Dodge Charger] I want 'em stopped.
Helicopter Pilot: Stopped, how?
Everett Franklin: I don't know how, I wouldn't be asking you if I knew how to fly this thing, would I? Now you listen to me, flyboy: I want 'em stopped, I don't give a good god damn if you gotta crash right into him. You hear me? 'Cause if you don't, you're gonna start screaming mayday, 'cause I'm gonna give it a try!

What's the problem?
5 May 2002 | by (Columbus, Ohio) – See all my reviews

with a little senseless fun? I love movies like this, where you don't have to think too hard and try and figure out what's going on, just sit back and enjoy!

i'd say this kicks Smokey & the Bandit's tail!
