Classic action comedy pitting Burt Reynolds' fast-driving, fast-talking bootlegger Bandit against a redneck sheriff ('Smokey' Jackie Gleason) in the Deep South. It's a road-runner-style demolition derby as Bandit chaperones a truckload of beer back from Texas, leaving a trail of hapless cops and their cars in streams, canals, bridges, or the backs of other vehicles. Sally Field squawks up a storm as Bandit's gal while sidekick Dom DeLuise is always on hand to ensure everyone has a good ol' time.
