Not a traditional widescreen/blu-ray adaptation
Verified purchase
A word of warning on this video... normally when one orders a blu-ray of a movie, one expects to see a high-resolution 16:9 (or 21:9) aspect-ratio version that was shown in theaters, exposing 'more' details that were previously missing in the 4:3 version available previously. The picture ought to be 'wider' horizontally.

In this case, however, they "created" a 16:9 version by *cropping* the old 4:3 version down - it is actually 'narrower' vertically, and you are seeing less of the movie than you saw in the 4:3 version.

Add to that that I am suspicious that that resolution is not any better than the old SD version, and I am very disappointed.

I would have given it a zero if I could!

DO NOT PURCHASE! This is the worst download I have ever gotten from Amazon. It is clearly a copy of a video or dvd. There are little flecks running through the entire picture (what I could watch of it). The color is subdued and the picture is blurry. I've never been so disappointed in a product from Amazon. If I could return it, I WOULD. But I guess digital videos cannot be returned. You messed up big on this one Amazon. So disappointed.

So bad it is good....sort of
Verified purchase
The first Cannonball Run was brilliant. The sequel seemed, well, painfully less. It has such a, "we don't know what to do to fill up 90min so we'll make it up as we go", feel to it. At one point several of our stars are dressed in harem garb dancing in front of the movies 'bad guy'. It is a scene that runs entirely to long and serves no point when the writers could have come up with much better ways to pull off a distraction than that. Heck, I did sitting on my couch rolling my eyes at that skit. The movie does have a few good moments but the humor falls short most times and the fun of the race is played down by cramming it full of awful skits for laughs especially the end of the movie/race at the finish line. What a massive let down. Whom ever wrote the script either lost or never understood the point of the first movie. It might make for a fun 'sick day' movie or one to watch after a bad week and you want to escape but on it's own it doesn't measure up, in my opinion anyway.

I say watch it just to see for yourself, unless it is on cable then definitely watch it there.

Such a waste after a brilliant first movie
Verified purchase
Wow. Rented this one night after watching the original. The first one is hilarious and underrated. Full of all shades of humor and a huge cast of talented actors.
This sequel is the exact opposite. Sure, some of the cast returned but the writing was embarrassingly bad. Like all-time bad. And since this has never been remastered, the quality is pretty much VHS level (if that). But if you want to see it and don’t own it, it’s petty much your only option.

Aside from a horrible plot, horrific acting and a cliched plot, it’s still almost unwatchable at times. If you’ve sat through it, you have my condolences.

2.5 stars - Pretty dumb, but sometimes funny.
Verified purchase
The CBR movies were pretty big back in the day. They scream "80s", but more for their attitude than anything else. They are silly, quite ridiculous, and pretty much an ongoing fight scene with some story sprinkled in. The star studded cast does a good job, and if you like cool cars, there's lots of those. There's not a lot to say about this movie. It is what is is.

Only worth watching to see the Rat Pack.
Verified purchase
Even if you like the first Cannonball Run, this is not a good film. It is only worth watching because it is the final on-screen appearance of Rat Pack members Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis, Jr. together.
