Love the old classics
These kind of good old movies will never die. My yuppie kids even like to sit down & watch them with me. I'm tired of most of the blood & gore stuff in the theaters these days.

Smokey and the Bandit 1977
Truly an american classic, When a challenge is thrown down to the bandit (Burt Reynolds). To make a trip to Texas, from Atlanta and back in 28 hours. Loaded down with 400 cases of illigal Coors Beer. He enlist the help of his good friend Snowman (Jerry Reed), to make the trip with him. Along the way the Bandit picks up runaway bride Carrie (Sally Field). Trouble comes calling when her future father-in-law, the sheriff (Jackie Gleason). Starts to chase them from Texas. The movie is loaded with great one liners and great preformances. Not only a great Southren movie, but a great American Classic, and one of my favorite movies.<br><br>Steve P.

fast and funny
the movie was just as entertaining and funny as it was the first time I saw it in 1977. I purchased it for my grand daughter to watch with me and she thought it was great.

One of Burt's Best
This movie is one of the classic high speed chase comedy movies.Burt is great as "The Bandit",as is Sally Field as "Frog",and Jerry Reed as "The Snowman".But Jackie Gleason steals the movie as "Sheriff Buford T. Justice of Texas".Plus,who could forget the black Trans Am.The story is simple in this movie.Bandit is hired (really a bet) to transport some Coors beer from Texas to Georgia in 28 hours.Unfortunately, due to federal liquor laws and state liquor tax regulations of the time, selling and/or shipping Coors east of the Mississippi River was considered bootlegging, and the truck drivers who had taken the bet previously had been discovered and arrested by "Smokey" (truck driver and CB slang for highway patrolmen).With Bandit as a "blocker" for Snowman and his rig filled with Coors they set out with numerous chase scenes to follow.A great comedy movie.In fact the film was the second highest grossing film of 1977, beaten only by Star Wars.Also included the popular Jerry Reed song "East bound and Down".Give it a watch.Read full review
