Alternate Versions

Extensive overdubbing was required for network TV broadcast, in particular replacing a good percentage of Jackie Gleason's dialogue with new lines spoken by an actor with a noticably higher voice. The recurring phrase "Sum-bitch!" became "Scum-bum!" (same as TV prints of the first Smokey and the Bandit (1977)). Even the bloopers at the end needed to be redubbed, with the phrase "your mother's ass" being changed to "your father's face"! See more »

Disappointing
22 January 2003 | by NoobzSee all my reviews

Whatever happened to the Double or nothing jaunt to Boston for some clam chowder? That is what I was expecting. After all the original seemed to segueing to that end. Reynolds was just plain old goofy.

Some of the scenes with Justice were even better than the original, at least until he met up with his brothers. Down hill from there.
