Rating: 3/5 -- Cannonball Run exists somewhere in between being a last bastion of an 'old boys' Hollywood comedy, versus offering a wry send-up of those values. Full Review
Rating: 7/10 -- Amiable, lightweight fun. Captain Chaos saves the day.
Rating: C+ -- Harmless entertainment at its most commercial and least artistic, offering some fun spotting the stars in cameos Full Review
The movie doesn't go beyond repeating a formula of parallel stories. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review
El Pais (Spain)
The last five minutes, when they show out-takes of flubbed lines, etc, are hysterical. The rest is strictly for those willing to pay for a series of TV chat show performances. Full Review
Rating: 2/5 -- Stunts, stereotypes, and silliness in beer-fueled car race. Full Review
Common Sense Media
Rating: 3/5 -- Nonsense but fun nevertheless with a crazy ensemble cast of celebrities of the era. Full Review
A cross-country car race provides the plot for this action-packed madcap comedy with an all-star cast. The fun continues from coast to coast with the likes of Burt Reynolds, Jackie Chan, Roger Moore, Farrah Fawcett, Dean Martin, Mel Tillis, Sammy Davis Jr., and dozens of others.
- The film spawned a sequel that starred much of the same cast, with the addition of the likes of Susan Anton, Shirley MacLaine, Telly Savalas, and Catherine Bach.
