When John Candy's character is evading the police backward he drives over the rail road tracks, the footage was reversed as the dust picked up goes down into the ground rather than in the air. See more »

Quotes

Alec: So, Vic. What do you think of my idea of writing down the license numbers now?
Vic DeRubis: Yeah, yeah, yeah! It's a great idea! How many times you gotta bring it up?
[on phone]
Vic DeRubis: Uh, the license is as follows: R-I-C-H... Uh, I think that spells "Rich"... Kids... with a "k"... for "kids".

Great film...
8 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's just too bad more of the original members of the cast didn't do the film.

And too bad Hal Needham and Brock Yates didn't make the film.

If they had, they would probably had been able to get more of the original actors for this one. It's still a great film to watch nonetheless. Just a bunch of good fun and great races. No need to really get into the details...cause if you let the details ruin it for you, you'll never get into many movies.

I personally like not knowing who really won in the race, just goes to show you that the journey is better than who won.
