214 - Happy Burtsday! - SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT (1977)

February 10, 2022

Here we are, on the eve of what would have been Burt Reynolds’ birthday and gassy from drinking too much Coors. What would be a more appropriate way for us to spend our time today than to talk about SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT and its ultra-70s experiment in melding together a southern-fried booze running movie and a tobacco-stained trucker movie? Throw in a wicked country soundtrack and both pairs of Sally Fields’ chubby cheeks and it’s a recipe for a good time.
