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.
When the trailer started for Matrix (before my 7pm showing of Star Wars Dos), the unwashed masses cheered. When the last visual pops up that it will come out in 2003, there was an audible groan for the audience.
