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

The movie poster and VHS cover showed a black Mistubishi. This car does not appear in the movie, but is the car that Jackie Chan's character drove in Cannonball Run II (1984). One rumor for this has been that Jackie Chan was possibly going to reprise his role and appear in this film, or it was a marketing scheme hoping to draw in audience members giving them a false hope that Jackie was going to be in the film.

This movie is one of my favorites. The Cannonball movies are great, and I think this one fits in with the first two just fine, if not better. As a youngster, I was obsessed with exotic cars and used to rent this movie all the time mostly for the cars. Now over 10 years later, I still love watching this movie. It has awesome cars, a good list of stars, and you gotta love the cheesy acting/plot. Obviously this movie isn't Oscar-worthy, and it wasn't intended to be, but really, the only movies worthy of awards and critics' attention are the boring and/or unheard of movies that would put you to sleep faster than Nyquil. Unless you're a movie critic (meaning: you have no personality, no humor, and are uptight about everything), you should get a kick out of this movie, if not at least a good amount of laughs.
