Movies and tv: Cannonball Run II

(Minimal linguistic content)

A spectacularly terrible movie, to judge from all reports. With a gigantic cast of well-known names, just jammed into this confection:

From Wikipedia:

Cannonball Run II is a 1984 American comedy film featuring Burt Reynolds and an all-star cast, released by Warner Bros. and Golden Harvest. Like the original Cannonball Run, it is a set around an illegal cross-country race.

The film received eight Golden Raspberry Award nominations at the 1984 Golden Raspberry Awards, including Worst Picture, Worst Actor, and Worst Actress, but no wins.

(Siskel and Ebert just hated it.)

Some cast members besides Reynolds:

Dom DeLuise, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Jamie Farr, Marilu Henner, Telly Savalas, Shirley MacLaine, Susan Anton, Jackie Chan, Frank Sinatra, Jack Elam, Ricardo Montalban, Doug McClure, Charles Nelson Reilly, Mel Tillis, Tony Danza, Tim Conway, Don Knotts, Jim Nabors, Abe Vigoda, Molly Picon, Chris Lemmon, Arte Johnson

Oi.
