They Don’t Make Movies Like They Used To

Roger Moore, Terry Bradshaw, Dean Martin, Farrah Fawcett and Burt Reynolds! No, this isn’t a list of decent people that reside in the holy grail of hall of fames (Decent Collage), but the cast of The Cannonball Run! Joined by Sammy Davis Jr., Jackie Chan and Dom DeLuise, this 1981 comedy follows a zany cast of characters on a race from Connecticut to California. From Roger Moore playing a guy pretending to be Roger Moore; to Dean Martin playing a drunk guy driving a red Ferrari pretending to be a priest; to the decently awesome theme music; to the sweet hotness of Farrah Fawcett; and to Dom DeLuise’s Capt. Chaos, this flick is definitely worth popping in your VCR sometime soon. Editor’s note: My Dad got me a copy of the Cannonball Run for Christmas in 1993 when I was about 12 years old. It was wrapped with a copy of Blazing Saddles. Talk about Decent presents.
