The Cannonball Run (1981)
Burt Reynolds, Roger Moore, Farrah Fawcett, Dom DeLuise, Jackie Chan, Peter Fonda, Adrienne Barbeau and Terry Bradshaw make for one bizarrely eclectic cast in this hilarious road-race film. Hell, even the Rat Pack’s Sammy Davis, Jr. and Dean Martin show up for the ride. Showcasing Reynolds’ ability to earn laughs as a leading man, The Cannonball Run was directed by Hal Needham, who made Reynolds a star with Smokey and the Bandit.
