2 Fast 2 Forever #099 – Smokey and the Bandit (1977)
We’re going eastbound and down, loaded up and truckin’ as we cover our second Burt Reynolds/Hal Needham team-up this lap: Smokey and the Bandit! First, though, we talk about a slight format change, open up a full-again mailbag, and ponder some heavy choices in the Fast and Furious Minute. Then, we’ve got 28 hours to drive 1,800 miles and bring Coors Banquet east of the Mississippi. We’re talking about Burt Reynolds’ charm, Sally Field’s lovable nature, and people of all stars and stripes banding together to stand up to The Man. (Movie conversation begins around 1:02:35.)
