Storyline

Big Enos and Little Enos have opened a seafood restaurant and want to promote it in their usual fashion. The Bandit is unavailable this time, though, so they enlist Buford. "Trigger" is brought out of mothballs, a large fish is strapped to the roof of the car, and the new Bandit is on his way on another wild cross-country run. But where there is the Bandit, there is Sheriff Buford T. Justice. Written by Jason A. Cormier <wildrose@mindspring.com>

Absolutely sucked...
5 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This absolutely sucked...and I'm still wondering how in the world it got a PG rating. The first Smokey was great, and the second one was still pretty good...better than most sequels anyway. I thought that Smokey 3 would be a fun movie simply because of the first two. I am also very pleased to know that Burt Reynolds had no part in this film; if he did, I would be ashamed. What really got me though was all the nudity and sexuality. It was completely ridiculous and could have been completely taken out of the movie, and you wouldn't have missed a thing. Unfortunately, it appears that Smokey and the Bandit too had become subject to the raunchy sexuality of the times. It truly was a waste of my time, and I wish it had never been made.
