Smokey and the Bandit: “10-4, Good Buddy!”
#Hindsighters, Darth and Jason strive to provide you with aberrant content on a weekly basis, and on this particular episode, they sure didn’t disappoint. This week, they cruised back into the 70s to discuss the lauded classic, Smokey and the Bandit!
There really was something for everyone in this Godfather of car chase films. Women swooned over Burt Reynolds while men swooned over Sally Field and the Pontiac Trans Am.
Most importantly, EVERYONE swooned over Jerry Reed’s Eastbound and Down.
Smokey and the Bandit is truly a fun-filled romp where your leading lady’s hair was always perfect, regardless of the velocity of travel in the car or in the bedroom. The Bandit may have only taken his hat off for one thing, but his team of hookers readily took off their clothes to make sure their favorite outlaw made it back to Atlanta on time.
It’s honestly difficult to imagine a movie that so stands the test of time like Smokey and the Bandit does. When Sterling Archer holds a movie (along with everything else Burt Reynolds ever did) to such a high standard, everyone else should fall in line. Subsequently, you #Hindsighters shouldn’t be surprised that Smokey and the Bandit wound up on the Seinfeld end of the most objective scale in the world.
In all seriousness, Darth and Jason dare you to find another movie where the director was legendary enough to warrant his own toy set.
Dares notwithstanding, get excited, because Adam Brown donned a fake mustache to join your favorite podcasters for this special movie and his whopping 9th appearance on the show, leaving Katie trailing behind just like Sheriff Buford T. Justice.
You might want to get your ears and your eyes on, good buddies, ‘cause ol’ Smokey is bound to catch up to that badass Trans Am. Crack open your legal Coors beer, don your best mustache, and enjoy our latest episode!
