A wild, illegal, and popular cross-country car is organized, and the eccentric entrants will do anything to win, including low-down, dirty tricks.
The plot of a cross-country road race is based on an actual event, the Cannonball Baker Sea to Shining Sea Memorial Trophy Dash, organized by Brock Yates to protest the 55 mph speed limit then in effect in the U.S. The Cannonball was named for Erwin G. "Cannonball" Baker, who in the roaring 20's rode his motorcycle across the country. Many of the characters are based on ruses developed by real Cannonball racers over the several years that the event was run.
This is one funny film. The chemistry is just so great. Burt Reynolds and Dom Deluis were meant to be together, just as Laurel and Hardy or Abbot and Costello. And Jack Elam. He is an American original. But the secondary big named talent is just as great. Roger Moore spoofing his James Bond character, Jamie Faar as an eastern prince, Mel Tillis and Terry Bradshaw. Farah Fawcett's clueless seriousness is right on the money to make it even funnier. The other single greatest pairing is Dean Martin and Sammy Davie Jr. Director Hal Needham has recreated the great American classic road race here. You just have to watch out for the dirty tricks. Relax and have fun with this one.
