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>

Goofs

During Cledus' initial drive of the Trans-Am, he drives past some farm girls and waves out of the open roof at them. One interior shot of him waving shows him sitting on the right-hand side of the car, immediately followed by an exterior shot of him screeching to a halt which shows him sitting on the left-hand side of the car. Either the film was reversed, or the film makers used a mix of left-hand-drive and right-hand-drive cars. See more »

I was an extra during the boat scene
31 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was in HS at the time and part of a 200 piece marching band there for the shark presentation. I can't tell you how many takes were shot to get that immortal scene forever saved on celluloid. I'm honored to have such an indelible mark on cinematic history.

The main thing I remember is that there was always a grip following Mr. Gleason around with a directors chair, and he would slide it under his butt as he started to squat down. I don't know if he was that frail or that pompous, but we all took note of it.

That, and all of the bikini clad girls on the boat. Nothing holds the attention of adolescent boys better that hot models in bikinis (and they were hot for their day).

I gave it a 3, since I've yet to see it after all these years. Now that I shoot some movie sets for my company (http://www.thomasmanchester.com photography) I wish I could go back as an observer and re live all of that kitsch.
