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>

Trivia

The stunt driver double for Jerry Reed is a heavy-set man in contrast to Reed's slim build. This is because in an earlier version of the film, Jackie Gleason also played the role of the Bandit. The man was Gleason's double. See more »

Goofs

During the milk truck scene, as Buford crashes through it, you can clearly see that the light bar, as well as the fish are knocked completely off. Upon the next shot of the car back with all four wheels on the ground, they are both still there. See more »

Lame excuse for a movie
13 April 2004 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Smokey and the Bandit (part one, that is) was a really funny movie with a great Burt Reynolds. But this time around, almost everything goes wrong. Almost...

Because there is this one scene at the beginning of the movie as Jackie Gleason spoofs 'Patton', and I loved that part (as I love Patton), but that's about all the joy this movie gave me...

Cledus 'the snowman' is the bandit in this one, as Burt Reynolds turned it down (and rightfully so), but he's so awful it's hard to describe. If he'd said 'I am the bandit, I am the bandit' one more time I would've slapped him in the face.

As everybody deserves a good slapping after making this one. One question left: What were they thinking?

2/10.
