First and second sequels to the popular 1977 feature. In 'Smokey and the Bandit 2' outlaw driver The Bandit (Burt Reynolds) is now an alcoholic down on his luck, who accepts the job of delivering an elephant to the Republican National Convention in just 24 hours. Hot on his tail of course, is the redneck Sheriff Buford T. Justice (Jackie Gleason), still smarting from his earlier humiliation. In 'Smokey and the Bandit 3' two entrepreneurs hire truck driver Cletus (Jerry Reed) to deliver a replica shark from Miami to a seafood restaurant in Texas. On the way, Cletus is mistaken by Sheriff Justice (Gleason) for his old enemy The Bandit, and a high-speed chase ensues as Buford and his son set out to apprehend him.
