  • ★★★★ review by Matt Singer on Letterboxd

    Alfred Hitchcock supposedly liked this movie. I see why.

  • ★★★½ review by Cinemonster on Letterboxd

    In what could have been just a silly movie, a stellar cast, led by Burt Reynolds, makes Smokey and the Bandit a fun ride. There is chemistry in spades from Sally Field and Jackie Gleason to Paul Williams and Jerry Reed. Many of the car stunts are outstanding, expected from director Hal Needham, and a lively soundtrack and quick pace keep things rolling non-stop. One of the better car/road films out there and certainly a highlight of Reynolds career and the decade. It doesn't get more 70s/80s southern than this.

    Chicken soup in cinematic form. Good for what ails you.

  • ★★★★ review by 🎄Brother Nature🎄 on Letterboxd

    Good ole Mr. Hitchcock was supposedly quite the fan of this, can’t say I blame him.

  • ★★★★ review by truman segal on Letterboxd

    those car chase scenes on the big screen were such a spectacle.

    a coincidence that i saw it on the exact same screen i saw Fury Road on two years ago? perhaps not.
