Number of Times Seen – too many to count (TV, Video, DVD, 23 Jun 2013)
Brief Synopsis – A gaggle of racers attempt to win a race by traversing the USA in only 36 hours.
My Take on it – Director Hal Needem gathered a plethora of stars together to create a really fun racing movie based on a real illegal event from the 1970’s.
Teams of racers attempted to cross the US in record time in hilarious ways
Cast is really star studded for 1980; Burt Reynolds, Dom Deluise, Farrah Fawcett, Sammy Davis Jr, Dean Martin, Roger Moore, Bert Convy, Jackie Chan, Peter Fonda, Jamie Farr, and Terry Bradshaw.
As a kid, I remember watching this movie and its sequel dozens of times of Cable never getting sick of it. As an adult, I appreciated the movie, but obviously not as much as I once did.
Bottom Line – Fun movie, but not as fun as when I use to watch it in the 80’s. Recommended
Rating – Globe Worthy
