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

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 »

Pitiful.
4 September 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Despite Burt Reynolds only agreeing to be in a cameo part at the end(and no Sally Field at all) studio went ahead and made this pitiful, embarrassing sequel that has Sheriff Buford T. Justice retiring, only to be called back one last time by Big Enos & Little Enos, who defy him to catch the Bandit. Despite the "real Bandit" being elsewhere, his friend Cledus decides to become the "new Bandit" and Buford(with his son in tow) chase him instead.

With no plot to speak of, and a distressing number of lame, crude gags, this utterly pointless film was one of the worst films of its decade. Hard to believe this went into production at all, and remains a jaw-dropping experience.

This really stinks!
