Storyline

TV version of "Smokey and The Bandit". This episode co-starred Kathy Ireland as a model, running from a man who wants money that she has. She gets a ride from The Bandit. They stop at a gas station, when she is inside, Bandit finds the money. She ends up taking his car, only to find out her money is gone. Bandit has it, so she returns to the station. Bandit continues to help Kathy out of the situation she is in. Don't remember how, but a bus full of Nudists gets involved. Everything works out in the end. The Bandit drives a Mitsubishi Stealth, I believe. The show only lasted a few episodes. Written by benkunkel

One of the best TV films ever made. Kathy Ireland is awesome!
8 February 2003 | by swanscrossingfanSee all my reviews

NO SPOILERS!!!!

I saw this movie on TV a long time ago. I was surfing IMDB, and decided to look it up. I am shocked to see that it only got a 2.6!(at the time of this review) I voted it as a 10! Anyway, I think this is one of the greatest movies ever, I wish i could see it again. If you are ever watching TV and see this on, watch it. I promise it will not be a waste of time. Kathy Ireland is excellent in this film. This was actually the first time I really noticed her(I had seen her before in Alien From L.A (1988)), but after I saw this I became a HUGE fan. The rest of the cast is great as well. Thanks for taking your time to read my review. WATCH THIS MOVIE!!!!!
