Jamanda Posted July 31, 2005 Report Share Posted July 31, 2005 We just saw Smokey and the Bandit last night on CMT...just about jumped out of our seats when we saw BEN JONES in an opening scene. Jam didn't recognize him with the moustache and Amanda had to point him out. We already knew about the scene with SONNY SHROYER and were disappointed that he never takes those goggles off. Also, he does a better funny cop than mean cop. It was funny when he said "Thanks a lot!" after falling into large puddle on his bike.We tried to find a young John Schnieder, but alas, it was all in vain.We also noticed a lot of Dukes connections, such as, The Bandit's real name is Bo, Snowman's name is Cletus, obviously Big ENOS Burdette (rest in peace), and Fred being a basset hound (although a much larger one than Flash). There were also a lot of familar CB talk and car wrecks ( the top of a patrol car being stripped off).Oh yeah, definately a good movie. We saw it the first time years ago on "Dinner and a Movie" and our sister Deb, we believe, still has the recipe for "Breaker Breaker Banana Cream Pie." As we recall, it was delicious. We'll have to make it again. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
