Come on everybody, sing along! "East bound and down, loaded up and truckin'..." We loved Smokey and the Bandit as a small child, and
29 years later (after the movie, not our childhood) it's still good, if not better. An impossibly cute Sally Field, theme-song singer Jerry Reed as the loveable Snowman, one of Jackie Gleason's most memorable performances, and Burt Reynolds just being pure Burt Reynolds. You know the story, now watch the trailer. Then go out and buy the DVD. Oh, it's on cable all the time you say? True, but it's not the same with Gleason saying "scum-bum" instead of actually swearing.
