Product Description

Amazon.ca

It's easy to assume this is just another dumb redneck comedy from Burt Reynolds's years of underachievement. But it's not bad as a dumb redneck comedy at all. Directed by career stuntman Hal Needham, Smokey and the Bandit is just a goofy chase starring a bunch of Reynolds's Hollywood cronies. New to the job as film boss, Needham brings a silly but energized sensibility to the production and an action man's need to see things moving. But he also has a distinctive feeling for relationships, and he's good with a joke. Put all that together, and Smokey is, at the very least (and unlike its sequels), a simple and original pleasure. The DVD release has a widescreen presentation, optional French and Spanish subtitles, and cast and crew bios. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Jerry Reed would be proud Aug. 3 2013

Format:Blu-ray|Amazon Verified Purchase
I remember watching this movie on VHS when i was younger, it was awesome then and its even better now. Burt Reynolds and Jackie Gleason have the best back and forth in this movie. This movie why i ended up loving cars growing up.

The special features on this disc also add some things that i was unaware of which actually make the movie more interested upon discovery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Dec 15 2012

Item arrived very quickly. My boy friend has an affinity to this movie as he is an original owner of the car and has it in VHF. Wasn't sure how much better a blu ray version would really be but it does look better on the big TV.

By Stack
Format:DVD|Amazon Verified Purchase
Thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable. Burt Reynolds and Sally Fields in their prime and at their best. The second disc provides personal interviews and well as interesting facts concerning the making of the movie in particuliar about Burt's relationship with Pontiac after the movie came out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun, classic 70s comedy. Oct. 7 2009
Format:DVD
If you missed the 70s, watch this movie plus Saturday Night Fever and you'll be set. Smokey features Burt Reynolds at his cheeky, comedic best. Sally Fields is cute and Jackie Gleason plays the good ol' boy southern sheriff to the max. The extra features include lots of fun bits of info on the making of the film. Jerry Reed is pitch perfect in his characterization and provided great music for the film, too.

4.0 out of 5 stars That's a big 10-4 Good Buddy! May 18 2004
Format:DVD
There was a time when Coors Beer was not available east of the Mississippi. Any attempt at carrying the beer across that big ole river was considered Bootlegging! And who better to take on the challenge than the Bandit. But things get out of hand when he picks up a wandering bride who just walked out on her fiancé, the son of Sheriff Buford T. Justice. It turns into a game of chess as Ole Buford is in Hot Pursuit.
Got it? Well, it doesn't matter. This film is not about story. It's about fast cars, notably a black Trans Am and the destruction of as many police vehicles as can be done in and hour and a half, the more humiliation the better. The film was helmed appropriately enough by longtime stuntman Hal Needham who keeps the action rolling. But it is the charismatic performers that make this film such 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, if truth be told, 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. Like the occasional car flying off the ground and landing atop a truck for no apparent reason.
This simple story, Smokey and the Bandit, 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!

5.0 out of 5 stars The way movies should be made today April 23 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I'll never forget the first time I watched the tail end of the movie and I actually quite liked it, then a couple of months later I taped it on the KSTW channel (cable station is located in Tacoma, WA) and they got rid of that channel sometime around 1994 or 95 which was kind of unfortunate cause I grew up on that channel and that channel will always take me back to the golden days of my childhood.
The movie begins as the Bandit (Burt Reynolds) takes a $80,000 bet to see whether he can haul off about 600 cases of beer from Texarkana, Texas to somewhere in Georgia within' 18 hours and he brings his buddy Cledus (Jerry Reed) to drive the semi truck so he can haul off the beer while the cops (better known as the Smokey's) can concentrate on just the Bandit and the Bandit buys a brand new Trans Am, then he meets up with a runaway bride (Sally Field) and Buford T. Justice (Jackie Gleason) is on their tail cause she ditch Buford's dimwitted son Junior and boy wouldn't it be funny if every cop was as dumb as Junior?
There are some other great moments throughout the film like Buford driving through a pole and the top of the car comes on, or when the police cars collided into each other and a trucker crashes into the open door of Buford's car and he gets all angry, if you like high speed chase movies or fast cars then you'll like Smokey and the Bandit, I wouldn't recommend watching the sequels unless if you really enjoyed watching this movie and they don't come close to how good this movie is although I do kind of like watching Smokey and the Bandit 3, if you're on a budget then I would get the Smokey and the Bandit pursuit pack which generally costs around $17-$20 and it's less expensive than buying Smokey and the Bandit 1 and 2 separately.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honk if you think Sally Field is cute April 13 2004
By Harry
Format:DVD
This is a movie the whole family can watch and enjoy. I always thought Sally Field was cute, back in her gidget days, and she does not dissapoint in this movie. Burt Reynolds is overflowing with machoness. And the firebird trans-am still looks good to me. Jackie Gleason plays the sherrif who is set on catching Burt Reynolds, and chases him through multiple states.
This is one of those throwback movies where the excitement does not rely on four letter words(...).
The DVD picture quality gets 4 stars. It is a clear picture, but the colors are not as vibrant as newer movies. Considering it was filmed in the 1980's, perhaps this is the best we can get. If we avarage the movie at 5 stars, and the DVD at 4 stars, that leaves us with 4.5 stars, rounded up to 5. A few special features on the DVD would have been appreciated.
