I turned on my television today and saw CannonBall (1976) thinking I was gonna see some Burt Reynolds car racing, I grabbed a beer. Unfortunately what I got was a David Carridiene (Revenge of the Nerds) led CannonBall. What's up wit that?
I was aware of the late 80s John Candy suckfest of a CannonBall movie, but had no idea that there was a pre-CannonBall suckfest.
Was anyone else aware of this movie, and is this what the CannonBall (Burt Reynolds) movies were based on?
"Why are you hiding? We are not monsters, we're just kids" "There's a difference?"
Burt Reynolds starred in "Cannonball Run", and Robert and David Carradine were in "Cannonball", which is not related to the former. John Candy was in "Speedzone" which is the unofficial sequel to "Cannonball Run 2". Try going to www.imdb.com sometime if you have questions like this, since it's a great resource.
Having never gone to one of these events, I didn't know what to expect. I've lived in San Diego now over 10 years and always wanted to go. Despite all the rage, I never went. Until today. I was lucky to get a free pass for the weekend.
