Smokey and the Bandit Part 3 (1983)
Smokey and the Bandit Part 3 is among my favorite movies, and I enjoyed it the most of the Smokey and the Bandit series. Jackie Gleason as Sheriff Buford T. Justice, is at his best in this one. Him and his son Junior (Mike Henry), have many funny segments. One prime example is the part where they run out of gas, and they argue about who is going to push the car. Another one is where Sheriff Justice is in the traffic jam, and takes a shortcut into oncoming traffic. We see a cameo of Joe Pesci, which has a really funny laugh in it. Burt Reynolds has a cameo appearance in the end, which is really detailed, considering it being a cameo appearance.
There are many spectacular stunts and chase scenes I liked as well. Such as the part where Sheriff Justice goes through the cannon at the race track. Then later you see the back of the car all charred up from the cannon, which is really funny. Another great scene is by Cledus The Snowman (Jerry Reed), where he is getting revenge from the first Smokey and the Bandit and brawling it out with the motorcycle guys. Unlike the first one, he wins this time, while he's getting a burger for one of my favorite actresses Colleen Camp, who plays Dusty Trails.
Dusty Trails (Colleen Camp) doesn't appear until exactly one-third of the way through the movie. My favorite part with her is where she's wearing the cowgirl outfit. I also like the few lines she has with Sheriff Buford T. Justice. Needless to say, she's the main reason I like this movie. She's great throughout the movie.
I also enjoyed watching Big and Little Enos, as they get more screen time. One really spectacular part is where they shoot the dart to blow out Sheriff Justice's tire, plenty of action there! Then Sheriff Justice loses one more tire after leaning on the front of the car, which makes it even more funny and exciting!
Finally, this movie just gave some of the other people a chance to be in the spotlight, which I like to see as well. The bet Big and Little Enos make for Sheriff Justice to haul the shark clear across the southern United States, Colleen Camp hitching a ride with Jerry Reed, plenty of comedy and one-liners from Jackie Gleason, explosive action and breathtaking stunts, it just all comes together to make a quality adventure. The ending is quite inspirational, as it shows the Bandit and Sheriff Justice at the chase once again, preserving their reputation.
