    Unfortunately, No. Nor the original film that all the Cannonball movies were based on; "The Gumball Rally". Also needs "The Blues Brothers". "Mad Max" and "The Road Warrior" too.

    Not sure how first Cannonball movie can be based on the movie Gumball Rally since both were released in 1976.

    Here's a new one: "Meet the Millers", newly released to theaters. Rated R for content, extremely funny flick about a drug deal gone wrong and the stars' trip to Mexico to get an RV filled with pot. Definitely not a family movie.

    Breakdown (1997) Kurt Russell, J.T. Walsh, Kathleen Quinlan......Nice change of pace for Kurt from his usual tough guy roles.

    Because the Cannonball Run came out in 1981, not 1976.

    And Cannonball Run was the 2nd of the Cannonball movies. The 1st was Cannonball, released in 1976. But you stated:

    So since Gumball Rally and Cannonball were both released in 1976, I don't see how Cannonball can be based on Gumball Rally.

    There is misunderstanding going on in this thread. First the "Cannonball" film from 1976, does not have Burt Reynolds in it, star of that is David Carradine. Later there was "Cannonball Run", and "Cannonball Run 2", with Burt Reynolds.

    Edmund is correct. When I said "all the Cannonball movies" I was referring to the two Burt Reynolds movies. I have never heard of the Carradine one, so I have no comment on it.
