Based on a real cross-country car race that ran for several years in the 1970’s from Darien, Connecticut to Redondo Beach, California, The Cannonball Run, is simple; drive fast, don’t stop, and never ever let the po-pos pull you over.

A plethora of stars from the late 70s and early 80s entertainment world bring the sex, drugs, and rock n roll lifestyle to automobile racing. There’d be a better chance of catching Farrah Fawcett wearing a bra in this film than character development or traditional three-act structure, and really nobody wants that here anyway.
