Trivia

In 2009, the TV show MythBusters (2003) set out to prove the stunt where the Lamborghini skips across some water to escape the police. They proved that a stock Lamborghini could not do the stunt and that the car in the movie must have been specially weighted and that it was possible that the water was very shallow and the car may have actually landed on its wheels when skipping. In other words, "busted". See more »

Goofs

The engine sound of the Lamborghini Countach in this movie sounds like a V8 (likely a Ferrari V8). Originally the car has a V12 engine. See more »

I have to admit that I don't know the "Cannonball Run" movies.
18 March 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I read that "Speed Zone!" is a semi-addition to the "Cannonball Run" movies; I don't know those at all, so I just have to take the movie at face value. It's basically another flick in the wacky race genre - others include "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" and "The Gumball Rally" - a litany of silliness for silliness's sake. I didn't derive any hidden meaning or anything (even "IAMMMMW" was all about greed). Totally pointless, I guess. Sort of an excuse to have a bunch of stars. There were some funny scenes, but not enough to merit any real recognition. The cast members have all done better than this. Starring John Candy, Donna Dixon, Peter Boyle, Shari Belafonte, Tom Smothers, Dick Smothers and Brooke Shields.
