Smokey and the Bandit II

I had a good time when I re-watched the first one not that long ago, and this one was pretty fun too. Sure, it’s dumb and ridiculous and over-the-top, but that’s what makes you want to watch it. They sure don’t make movies like this anymore — which is maybe for the best, or maybe not. Either way, I’m a bit surprised at how much I’m enjoying this 1980 re-watch so far.
