Critic Reviews of "The Cannonball Run"
VarietyMay 05, 2008
Full of terribly inside showbiz jokes and populated by what could be called Burt and Hal's Rat Pack, film takes place in that redneck never-never land where most of the guys are beer-guzzling good ole boys and all the gals are fabulously built tootsies.
Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
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.
Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
The Cannonball Run is an abdication of artistic responsibility at the lowest possible level of ambition. In other words, they didn't even care enough to make a good lousy movie.
New York TimesAugust 30, 2004
Inoffensive and sometimes funny.
Common Sense MediaMay 19, 2015
Stunts, stereotypes, and silliness in beer-fueled car race.
EmanuelLevy.ComJuly 30, 2011
Harmless entertainment at its most commercial and least artistic, offering some fun spotting the stars in cameos
Empire MagazineMay 05, 2008
Nonsense but fun nevertheless with a crazy ensemble cast of celebrities of the era.
TV GuideJanuary 09, 2007
This wholly derivative car-chase movie provides a flimsy excuse for good ol' boy Burt Reynolds to cavort on-screen with a cast that's chock-full of familiar faces.

Amiable, lightweight fun. Captain Chaos saves the day.
ÜberCinéAugust 14, 2005
My review at the time of release heralded this as, 'Wow! Whatta movie!' -- I am now officially amending that to: 'Wow! Amusing junk!'
Film ThreatMay 06, 2005
It doesn't get any better or BIGGER than this
Capital Times (Madison, WI)April 28, 2005
If it wasn't for the blooper reel at the end, this would get no stars.
