Truly one of the greatest American films of the 20th Century. Superior comedic timing, wit, intelligence, chemistry-- a poignant social commentary on the conspicuous consumption of the mid-1980s. Hilarity only surpassed by its taut direction, superior pacing and production value, the likes of which had been unseen since Battleship Potemkin or 2001.The editing on this masterpiece by William Gordean, famous for his genre-defining work on Tank Girl-- yes, that William Gordean exceeds brilliance. How did they get it to look like Frank Sinatra was really in those scenes? How? How? Magic, my <more>
friend. Hollywood Magic. To think that in 1984 this film was overlooked by the Academy for the likes of trivial, petulant "movies" like The Killing Fields and Amadeus is the greatest tragedy in cinematic history. Shame on you, Oscar. Shame. On. You.
Both CR I and II are always badly rated. However, no one can say they aren't cult movies, and they haven't became that for nothing.I prefer to see share the director's, the actors and the rest of the crew's view on this movie, only as a funny car chase comedy, and a not too serious one.
These 2 movies have a special place in my heart (by chvylvr80)
Like I said, The Cannonball Run and it's wonderful sequel have been entertaining me since I was a little viewer and I love these two films. Once again Burt Reynolds and Dom De Luise joke and fool around through the entire movie. I think that the major reason that people give this movie bad reviews is that they take it too seriously. It is obvious that no one in the movie was taking it seriously. Like in the first one, it is as if everybody just decided to get together and make a movie for fun. The Cannonball Run films weren't made to win awards or further careers or make a statement. <more>
The Cannonball Run and Cannonball Run II were made to show that even big stars can goof off sometimes. It makes me wonder if all the movies the Rat Pack made were made for the same reasons. Anyways, I love this movie and think that it's great fun. The out takes at the end are hilarious and more, nay, all movies should have out takes. Bottom Line: Buy it, watch it until every gag is committed to memory, and live better for it. You're welcome.
There's dead camp and then there's live camp. Cannonball Run II gets funnier and funnier each time I see it on TV. What is it that speaks to me? Is it Dom DeLouis bounding around in a red satin cape and a black mask with CHAOS written across the forehead? Is it the love scene between Sammy Davis, Jr. and Charles Nelson Reilly? Is it Molly Picon showing up just when you thought the movie had unearthed every out of work character actor in Hollywood? No, what makes this movie special is that so many of the tiny cameos, though laden with schtick, are brilliant. Did I mention Dom DeLouis <more>
doing Diana Ross in a harem outfit? Jamie Farr as an Arab sheik? Tony Danza and an uncredited chimpanzee?
A lot of people who rate movies here are missing the point....The movie stars in this picture rarely saw each other, so I'm sure that making this picture and part 1 was as much a social gathering and bunch of fun mixed together.I loved seeing everyone in this film- and am one person who loves the 'fun factor' and could care less about script or technical acting ability of the cast! below is for the minimum length extension A lot of people who rate movies here are missing the point....The movie stars in this picture rarely saw each other, so I'm sure that making this picture <more>

Cannonball Run II is the sequel for The Cannonball Run.A bunch of crazy people go racing all around the country-illegally, of course.Hal Needham's movie from 1984 has got the best and the biggest stars there could be.Burt Reynolds and Dom DeLuise make us laugh.Mr.Cool and Mr. Bojangles Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. make a terrific couple.Then there's the third member of the rat pack, Frank Sinatra himself.Marilu Henner and Shirley MacLaine as the naughty sisters are wonderful.Jackie Chan is there with Jaws of the James Bond films, big man Richard Kiel.Don Knotts is hilarious kissing <more>
the orangutan.The great comedian Sid Caesar tries to catch the big fish.Jack Elam is there with his shots.The hairless Telly "Kojak" Savalas is very convincing as the bad guy.Abe Vigoda is fantastic as the gangster in the Godfather way.Then there are greats such as Jamie Farr, Tim Conway, Tony Danza, Ricardo Montalban, Charles Nelson Reilly, Henry Silva, and Jack's son Chris Lemmon.This movie offers many fun moments.I sure had fun watching it.
Ignore the acting ability and stop with the critical views - It's a funny "Feel Good" film (by welcometothegoodtimes)
Much like the first Cannonball Run, this is a funny film - granted the acting isn't Oscar calibre but look beyond that! The aim of the movie is to make the viewer laugh and feel good, which in my opinion it does effectively!Especially amusing are Sammy Davies Jr, Dean Martin and Dom Deluise - recommended viewing is the scene where they are dressed as dancers. Frank Sinatra's appearance is pointless but adds something more to the movie.I suggest you just sit back and ignore the flaws, just enjoy this for what it is.

My previous friend gave this movie not a positive review, to say the least. But how could you not. No matter what you think of Burt Reynolds, this is one star-stuffed movie. Show me another one, where you can find that many stars all in one. If you like car movies, i am sure you have seen such greats as "The Great Race" with Tony Curtis & Jack Lemmon or "Gummball Ralley". "Cannonball" is without a doubt, one of the greatest 80' car/action/star movies ever. Forget the acting, this is one to laugh your brains out.
