Sinatra made a cameo appearance in this film after listening to Dean Martin and 'Sammy Davis Jr' go on and on about how much fun they had during the first film (this is according to director Hal Needham in the first film's DVD commentary). See more »
Before the big fight scene near the end there is a scene on a long straight road showing all the cannon ballers coming to help. In this group of vehicles lead by the pickup truck is the yellow sports car that broke down on the two Lamborghini girls early on in the race. See more »

As in my previous review of Cannonball Run Part 1 I said that it was a very laid back film and didn't get exciting till the very end. Another thing I forgot to mention is that the Cannonball Run films feature so many different famous actors and actresses you need to have a good balance of screen time for each of them. In the first one the film focused way too much on Bert Reynolds and Dom DeLouise's characters and towards the end they seem to become not as important anymore. Before I saw Cannonball Run Part 2 I thought I was in for really bad movie simply based on IMDb's rating of a 4.1. But I was surprised when I watched and saw that this one is actually better than the first.
Cannonball Run 2 follows the Arabian prince as seen in the first one. His father is upset with him for not winning the Cannonball Race last year. When he finds out that there is no Cannonball race this year, is father tells him to start his own. For this race instead of riving cross-country to California, its now Connecticut. But not all races are fun and games, the Cannonballers still have to dodge the police and now gangsters who are after the race's prize money of a million dollars, which ends up getting stolen. So, buckle up and see Cannonball Run 2.
This one is a lot better than the first. You get to see more characters and the focus isn't on just two of them like in Part 1, but is balanced so you see all of them. Now, don't get me wrong, like Part 1, this sequel too, should've had a better race with car chases, which aren't really in any of the Cannonball Run films. And when there are action scenes in Part 2, they're better than in Part 1. There are a lot of better stunts in this one. Now people say some this film is poor writing or done poorly, well its a a comedy and action adventure film. What do you expect ? When comedy and action combine you're not going to see people getting shot or people dying ? I recommend this more than the first one. The only miss is that Roger Moore didn't return for this one.
