Smokey and the Bandit

I was really expecting not to enjoy watching this — I knew that I loved it as a kid, but I was sure it would feel too corny and probably unfunny to me now. Lo and behold, I had an absolute blast watching it again. Sure, a lot of it is nostalgia — and finding comfort in a lot of the gags that I actually remembered — but from the classic theme song to the charisma of Burt Reynolds and company, and the exciting car chases, I won’t lie, I liked it a lot (for what it is, a silly comedy of the era).
