I can't believe Golden Harvest bankrolled this movie.

Cannonball Run II  was made several years after the surprisingly successful first film. This time Burt and company are back with another race with a cast of even more desperate-for-work-actors. This time the cast looks like a weekend line up at Harrah's Lake Tahoe. Another race, another bunch of washed up has beens hamming up it up.  The cast looked like they were enjoying themselves but I wasn't.  Jackie Chan reprises his small part of a "Japanese" race car driver.  Too many actors hanging around doing nothing remotely funny. Just imagine It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World but without the laughs.  The box office returns were modest and the gang didn't return for a third film.  A Canadian production would pick up the mantle for Speed Zone!, the third and final film of the Cannonball Run series.
I can't believe Golden Harvest bankrolled this movie.
