CANNONBALL RUN II (Hal Needham, 1984) **
21 December 2008 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

As I said in my review of the original 1981 film, this is much of the same – only slightly worse. What we get here is another impressive-looking but grossly underachieving cast list, which now also incorporates Shirley MacLaine (who, taking a cue from Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr.'s ruse in the first film, dresses up with her younger companion as a nun but soon ditches the habit and gets it on with star Burt Reynolds: having retained her figure at 50, she's not afraid to display it and is made to don ultra-short skirts throughout the film's second half!), Telly Savalas (embarrassing as a flustered gangster), Frank Sinatra (in a cameo as himself that amounted to his farewell to the silver screen: the competitors turn to him when organizer Jamie Farr is kidnapped along with the prize money…after which Ol' Blue Eyes decides to try his luck at the title as well!), Ricardo Montalban (as Farr's dad), Doug McClure (as Farr's long-suffering manservant!), Richard Kiel ("Jaws" from a couple of James Bond titles, appearing incongruously as Jackie Chan's co-driver – although one does wonder whether they turned to him after Roger Moore declined an encore) and the dubious novelty of having a bad-mannered orang-utan driver (which not only lock lips with Montalban[!] at one point but actually wins the race).

Of course, Dom DeLuise, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and Jack Elam (now detailed with Farr rather than Reynolds and DeLuise) also return to the fold – to say nothing of a new couple of sexy women drivers (including "The Dukes Of Hazzard"'s Catherine Bach). Incidentally, DeLuise has a second (or third, if you count Captain Chaos) role as a Mafia don – obviously aping Marlon Brando from THE GODFATHER (1972) – but which supplied the film's single funniest gag (i.e. the dead cat) and which I still vividly recalled from all those years ago. On the other hand, the low point would definitely have to be seeing Reynolds, DeLuise and Davis dressed up as dancing harem girls (even if Dino's reaction to that eyesore is admittedly amusing).
