Review : Smokey and the Bandit (1977/PG)

E-Mod 116 Online was founded in Jacksonville, Florida in 1995. Back then the cities motto was “The bold new city of the south.” While it’s our opinion none of that is true about Jacksonville anymore since 2000, the keyword in that motto is south and that’s really what Smokey and the Bandit is all about. Honestly this film could have just called The South: The Motion Picture. It’s a good ole boy movie. As usual there’s always one element that just makes this film work, this time it rests on none other then Jackie Gleason as Sherrif Buford T. Justice. He just can’t win but it’s chase between him the Bandit and Snowman which is what makes this cat and mouse game almost a live action feature length version of playing with Hot Wheels cars.
