On the original Smokey and the Bandit the Enoses made a bet with the Bandit (Burt Reynolds) and Cledus (Jerry Reed) to go deliver lots of beer from Texarkana, Texas to Georgia and back within' 18 hours, I think that this movie is one of the best movies ever made and there are so many classic moments like high speed pursuits, police wrecks and good one liners from Buford T. Justice (Jackie Gleason), plus the Bandit falls in love with Carrie (Sally Field) and she was supposed to marry Buford T. Justice's dimwitted son Junior, the highlights of the movie is when the top of Buford's car comes off or when Junior's hat falls off and Buford tells him that he hopes that his head was in it, what a good father he is.Read more ›
The best film in the group is the first, Smokey and the Bandit. (...) The film was helmed appropriately enough by longtime stuntman Hal Needham who keeps the action rolling. But it is the charismatic performers that make it a success. Burt Reynolds is at his confident best as the Bandit. He easily catches the eye of the adorable Sally Field. ("You Like me, you really, really like me") And even country singer Jerry Reed gives us some good comic relief when the romance begins to boil. But, it is the late, great Jackie Gleason's turn as the vulgar, grammatically challenged Justice that makes the film work and work well. He commits totally to bringing ole Buford alive and even makes logically challenged material work.
This simple story was one of the first films to topple the financial record held by GONE WITH THE WIND. Now, its numbers are nowhere to be found on that listing, but still it was an excellent feat. From its initial run, I'm sure Universal Pictures was ready to cash in with a sequel or two!
The whole crew returned for the SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT 2 (**) and the budget was increased. Everything looked great. Unfortunately, the script capitalizes on the wrong elements of its predecessor. It changes the films tone to be more like the CANNONBALL RUN films that would come out the following year.
Shockingly, the late Jackie Gleason, who was brilliant in the first film, takes a beating in this film, recycling Buford T Justice's dialogue from the first film ad nauseum.Read more ›
THE BAD: Smokey and The Bandit 2. As much as I enjoyed the first Smokey movie when it came out in theaters, I was really bummed out about this sequel a few years later. Smokey 2 is simply the result of Hollywood's cold math: "even if this picture stinks, it will make at least a quarter of the first movie's profits on name recognition alone, and that's a heck of a lot of money, so let's do this turkey." Watching Burt Reynolds & Co. phone it in (Reynolds reportedly made $5 million from this picture) is painful, but seeing the Bandit as a drunken lout really bogs the movie down. Not to mention the fact that there's really no joy here. Gone is the fun and action and sense of spontaneous humor from the first Smokey flick; this one will leave you feeling cold and disappointed. (The only vaguely positive thing I can attribute to Smokey 2 is that my pre-teenage sister developed a mad crush on Jerry Reed after seeing this movie.)
& THE UGLY: Smokey and The Bandit 3 was the sequel nobody asked for. It's hard to imagine there was an actual screenplay written for this aBOMBination...and if there was a screenplay, it must have been written on a cocktail napkin.Read more ›

The first cd was missing, gave this as a gift,to my son who is a fresh amputee and bedridden.
Terrible experience now I am looking for the first cd in stores.
The original movie is a classic. It has action, has some great lines and is clean for the whole family. If I was just rating the original movie, it would have to be a 4/5. Read morePublished on Nov. 28 2011 by fitness guy
