In 1977, stuntman Hal Needham envisioned a road comedy about a couple of modern-day bootleggers trying to get a semi full of illegal beer from Texas to Georgia while being doggedly pursued by a deranged lawman. Aiding to this venture was Needham's roommate and budding star Burt Reynolds, Sally Field, country music star Jerry Reed and comedy icon Jackie Gleeson. What was a film that no one wanted to make was the second-highest grossing film of the year, only outdone by Star Wars. But does this film still have the moves or does it deserve to be busted? MovieDude Eric, Kent, Lobster and guests Wing and Shark Taco from Legends Podcast join in on the pursuit in this final run for Arthouse Summer 2016.
