Smokey and the Bandit II

Film, Comedy

Time Out says

Three years after Smokey and the Bandit took the hard-drinking, fast-driving, trickster ethos of the American redneck into the big box-office league, Reynolds has proved he 'just does what he does best: show off'. This reunites the hit team round Reynolds as the self-mocking, loveable sonofabitch who, this time, goes on the road with a cargo of an elephant, hotly pursued by overweight cop Gleason and his dumb son. Alternating exquisitely timed gags with stunts, and going for broke with a massive demolition derby, means there's little to grouse about. From the start, when Reynolds surfaces from behind a mountain of empty beer cans, you know what's in store - a lightweight chase caper that Reynolds must truly be sick of by now, but which he has elevated into something impossible to dislike.
