Product Description

Product Description

Get ready to tear up the highway with the Bandit (Burt Reynolds), a fun-loving, fast-talking trucker who takes on his craziest haul yet - delivering 400 cases of beer from Texarkana to Atlanta in just 28 hours. With Sheriff Buford T. Justice (Jackie Gleason) hot on his trail and eager to teach him some respect for the law, the Bandit joins forces with good ol' boy, Cledus (Jerry Reed) and runaway bride Carrie (Sally Field). Gear up for huge laughs, pedal-to-the-metal action, and some of the wildest car crashes ever filmed!

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I wish every movie was this much fun! I mean, so much fun it makes me want to run beer through the smokies! I forgot how much fun this movie was. I was born the year it came out, so I obviously didn't see it on original release, but I did see it when I was a kid. Now I saw the tail end on the movie channel one night and just had to buy the disc. I tell you what..... I grew up on Dukes of Hazzard, and still love to see repeats. This is the movie that started it all. There is not one boring minute. Sure, it's no Oscar contender, but it wasn't meant to be. Just pure, good old American fun. Now, I have heard that the original was too vulgar to get the PG rating, so I understood some of the rather bad overdubs on the cussing, especially when you can read lips and it ain't even close. So it would be fabulous if the original, uncut, and unedited version can one day be released to DVD. Other than that, if you like to drive fast or like fast cars, cool chicks (yeah, Sally Field was a little hottie in her day), and just having fun, Smokey is a can't go wrong pick.

1977 was a landmark year in film with such film releases as "Annie Hall", "Close Encounters of the Third Kind", "The Goodbye Girl", "Star Wars" and one of Burt Reynolds' best known films, "Smokey and the Bandit". Under the direction of Hal Needham (who also co-wrote the film's story), Burt Reynolds plays a legendary truck driver named Bo 'Bandit' Darville, who is challenged to drive round-trip between Georgia and Texarkana, Texas to bring back 400 cases of beer within 28 hours. The men who challenged the Bandit were Big Enos Burdette (Pat McCormick) and his dress-alike son Little Enos Burdette (the composer Paul Williams, who shared an Oscar for Best Song with Barbara Streisand for the 1976 film "A Star Is Born"). To assist him with his challenge, the Bandit enlists help from his friend Cledus 'Snowman' Snow (Jerry Reed, who also sung the film's opening song "East Bound and Down", as well as the songs "Bandit" and "The Legend"). Snowman is given the duty of driving the 18-wheeler loaded with beer, while the Bandit buys a black Trans Am so that he can distract any law enforcement officers from finding it. After getting to Texarkana, loading the beer and starting back, the Bandit is forced to stop by a roadside bride in distress named Carrie (Sally Field), whom he agrees to give a ride. She was being pursued by Texarkana's sheriff, Sheriff Buford T. Justice (Jackie Gleason, 1916-1987), after having second thoughts about marrying his dimwitted son, Junior (Mike Henry, who before becoming an actor played professional football with the Pittsburgh Steelers and L.A. Rams). With Citizen's Band (CB) radios blaring, the Bandit becomes the unwitting quarry of Sheriff Justice, who chases him across the southern U.S.Read more ›

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.

Hal Needham's free-wheeling comedy SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT is a silly yet entertaining car chase movie in an era when all movies were car chase movies (Until a certain Sci Fi film directed by George Lucas came along). It works suprisingly well however, especially since the whole movie is essentially a 2-hour cop chasing bandit story, although it does sometimes succumb to the standard cop car pile up ( Which would be replicated in films like The Blues Brothers). The teaming of the then-cool Burt Reynolds and Sally Field makes for a great comedic duo and Jackie Gleason hams it up as Sherrif Bufford T. Justice. Jerry Reed's southern title song sums up the entire production ("West outta town, 18 wheels a'rollin', we gonna do what they say can't be done..."). And no other movie has quite reached the laid-back but still exciting tone to Bandit that puts it above the rest. Reynold's laconic, charming bandit is one of the great "bad guy heroes" that pervaded the genre's top-selling action flicks. The terrible sequels have unfortunatly tarnished the original's effect. Smokey 2 sees Dom DeLuise and an elephant (!) along for the (very slow) ride. Lacklustre sequels aside, the first one will remian a classic that fans of the genre will enjoy.
