The Cannonball Run (1981)
Decent all around car movie
I rented this movie on a whim cause it had cars in it, and was about the Cannonball Run, plus an all star cast. I have to say i was somewhat disappointed with this movie, while it is a comedy, there wasn't much car based action and the best of it was at the start of the movie with the intro credits with the Lamborghini being chased by the cop car.
The movie seemed to drag out in places, especially at the start, and not a whole deal of focus on the cars themselves. It's not all bad, the character interaction and the comedy was top stuff, enjoyable movie for that, but for a movie to do with an across country race it did lack in the action department with the cars, yeah there is a couple things thrown in here and there for good measure, but never really did much for me.
Good comedy, but even that could of been better slightly, the doctor had so much potential but was rarely used. If anything Farrah Fawcet was one of the redeeming qualities, but even her character wasn't used greatly, not that it mattered as she was more eye candy *and also bringing the movie's rating up slightly for me ;) and she had her high beams on at the start of the movie too hahaha* Lastly, while Jackie Chan was in this movie, he barely had any interaction at all with any of the other cast
Overall a relatively enjoyable movie i could watch many a time, but had a lot of potential in many areas to be better. A classic? well that's purely for you to decide, but for me, i'm not so sure
