not really the Bandit but fun anyway
31 March 2001 | by pete-293See all my reviews

This made for tv adaption of the "Smoky and the Bandit" films has all the usual fast cars, fast women, bar fights, and high speed chases that one associates with the bandit. This edition is complicated by the Bandits attempt to reclaim his lost love (Elizabeth Berkley) whom he abandoned some years earlier since she was from the wrong side of the tracks (actually the wrong side of the river). Further complications are government men hunting for bootleg audio tapes, competition for a large carved wooden bear, and two young people in love who are from opposite sides of the river. Definitely not a serious film. Brain Bloom is adequate as the bandit but that is about all one can say about him. Elizabeth Berkley is fine as the love interest and a little more. "Bandit Goes Country" is not really the Bandit but is good fun anyway.
