1) Smokey and the Bandit

2) Dazed and Confused

3) Big Trouble in Little China

Every time I'm feeling a bit down I put on that movie and it has never failed to make me laugh again. Some of the great comedians of their time doing their own shtick so to speak.

Also in the cast was:

Mickey Rooney
Ethel Merman
The Three Stooges
Dorothy Provine
Ben Blue
Joe E. Brown
William Demarest
Leo Gorcey
Norman Fell
Paul Ford
And many more.

Here's the six minutes that lead to the intermission in the movie, enjoy!

Mr. Roper indeed, although a lot younger. And the voice of the wife on the phone in the video I linked to was Selma Diamond who was the older female bailiff on Night Court when it first started. she passed away I believe during the first or second season of that show.

My favorite of the movie though was Dick Shawn. He near had me in tears the whole show. The cinematographer deserves a big hand in this movie too.
