Big and Little Enos are opening a sea food restaurant. They bet Sheriff Buford T. Justice that he cannot drive from Miami to the Enos ranch in Texas in a given amount of time. If Buford loses he has to give up his badge.
Early publicity announced in the media declared that Burt Reynolds, Sally Field and Jerry Reed would not be appearing in this movie. In the end, Field was the only one not to appear, Reed had a major role and Reynolds made a brief cameo, in the final scene.
Is it just me or are you slowing down?
Cledus Snow: Maybe. Think of it this way, what good is the roadrunner without the coyote? What good would the fox be without the hound? What good is the Bandit without the Smokey?
The sign on the tanker truck for Enos Dairy has Enos spelled as Enis.
During the end credits, a cast montage consisting of the movie's footage appear on the right side of the screen, with a still photo of Buford T. Justice saluting. The "This Motion Picture" disclaimer appears on the left side of the screen, even though there is nothing else taking up space.
USA cable network broadcast an alternate version of this film with additional footage (Jerry and Colleen) and more dialogue. For some reason, all the vocals in these "new" scenes had been overdubbed
