User Reviews: Whenever this film is on TV, I always go out of my way to watch it. The script isn’t over written, nor is the acting overdone as it had been well cast. Raul julia is excellent as as italian lothario who risks losing the race to make time with a groupie. Michael Sarazzin, here playing a bored tycoon, is always excellent in all the ’70s movies he made. Whatever happened to him? Anyone out there know. The many stories and characters intertwine neatly, and don’t outstay their welcome. Gary Busey also stars as a lame-brain racer, and later went on to portray many a villian in future films.

This film actually inspired a really rich kid to organise an annual gumball around Europe and America. So how’s that for an endorsement?

Forget The Cannonball Run and it’s straining to get laughs. Check this out if you’ve never seen it before.
