Trivia

The music playing when Ernie, Louise, Doug, and Ramon are showing Captain Gelberger the loot in the warehouse in the back of the pawn shop is "Also Sprach Zarathustra" by Richard Strauss, the same music that was used in 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). See more »

Goofs

When the 78 or 79 Trans am explodes, it is replaced with a early model Camaro 70 to 73 for the destroyed car. See more »

Quotes

Man with Cigars: [Puts his arm around Ramon who is a foot shorter than him] Well I like you. Tomorrow at noon, you may climb me.
Ernie: [laughing] Come on. He ain't that short.
Man with Cigars: Oh yeah? Well then how come he spent last month dangling from my car mirror?

A Burt Reynolds Film without the Burt Part
2 October 2002 | by (Atlanta) – See all my reviews

This film plays as if it was originally written with Burt Reynolds as the star, but he couldn't/wouldn't do it.

It features pretty much the Usual Reynolds-Film Suspects -- Jerry Reed, Alfie Wise, Pat McCormick and others, and has exactly that air of slightly sardonic, semi-detached humour that Burt's raised eyebrow and patented cackle/chuckle convey so well (to the extent that his laugh was used as part of an animated pre-credits studio logo sequence for "Smokey & the Bandit").

That said, the cast make an excellent ensemble, play well off each other, and deliver the goods quite satisfactorily.

Quite an agreeable way to fill in an otherwise wasted hour and a half or so; if you're not expecting Great Drama, i don't think this film will fail to entertain.

(Watch for the then-Mayors of Miami and Miami Beach in Very Funny cameos. I won't tell you where -- if you don't spot them, check the end credits.)
