Despite the police's preemptive strike, the illegal coast-to-coast car race is still on with new drivers. It's a race where fair play, red lights, stop signs, police roadblocks and traffic rules in general have no validity.
An illegal race that takes place over the United States and nothing will stop this bunch of racers except for the occasional cop or a damsel in distress. Jackie Chan's car is not in this one, but many new cars make up for that. Who will win? Who will crash? Who will not even finish? Sit down and buckle up for the ride of your life.Written by

Many cast members in this film appeared on SCTV (1976). John Candy and Eugene Levy pulled a lot of favors to get fellow cast members and friends to appear in this movie. Rick Moranis turned down the role of Whitman. See more »
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 »

Please, mister, it's not my fault. My brother Donato, he make me do this. Please, sir! Don't put me in jail with the Manson family!

Get your seatbelt on and put your hands on the dashboard. Come on! We've got some catching up to do.

I know people have debated this but this movie IS part of the Cannon Ball Run series. Its only tie however is a brief appearance by Jamie Far as The Shiek within the first few minutes of the movie. After that the movie severs most of its ties with the first two save for the race. Here a new crop of Cannon Ballers run the race while being pursued by Spiro T. Edsel a sheriff in the mold of Bufford T. Justice (a character played by the late Jackie Gleason on the Smokey and the Bandit series). Now believe it or not this is actually a decent movie when viewed outside of the Cannon Ball Run series. However when lined up with the first two Cannon Ball Run movies this just seems like a blatant rip off of them and to a lesser extent Smokey and the Bandit.
