2 Fast 2 Forever #088 – The Cannonball Run (1981)
As we continue to kick it old school and work our way through classic car movies (and, not so coincidentally, Quentin Tarantino’s rolodex of movie references), our next stop is 1981’s The Cannonball Run. After an overstuffed first half, including a minute where Brian takes a swing at Muse, we dive into patron The Cannonball Run, chosen by Alex Elonen on Patreon. We talk about the star-studded cast, wonder about the film’s confusing mixed reception, and debate which Fast & Furious characters would make the best Cannonball Run teams. (Movie conversation begins around 53:45.)
