    It's Him...

    Im trying to think of a film with a better cast than the Cannonball Run (with exception to Cannonball Run II, as its on a par)... Me and my old buddy Will were chatting about it on MSN and neither of us can think of one that comes close to...

    • Burt Reynolds
    • Dom De Luise
    • Dean Martin
    • Sammy Davis Jr
    • Roger Moore
    • Farrah Fawcett
    • Jack Elam
    Part II without Roger Moore but also with...

    • Jaws and
    • Frank Sinatra
    Despite being another awesome film even the Blues Brothers cast doesnt match up...

    Cannonball Run I & II are classic films. Superb stuff with a great cast and who can forget Jack Elam as Doctor Nikolas Van Helsing!!

    Another good cast... but can it really compare to the likes of Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr?? Plus Oceans 12 doesnt have... Him...

    Tom Cruise
    Kevin Bacon
    Kiefer Sutherland
    Demi Moore
    Jack Nicholson
    Cuba Gooding Junior
    That's not a bad cast.

    Aye, a good film, maybe a bit too cheesy in parts, but its cast is still not anywhere near as good as Cannonball Run though...

    Okay...how 'bout Trading Places

    Eddie Murphy
    Dan Akroyd
    Ralph Bellamy
    Don Ameche
    Denholm Elliot

    Colin Firth
    Hugh Grant
    Liam Neeson
    Emma Thompson
    Alan Rickman

    Yes..... but none of them have....... HIM.......... Dan Dan Daaaaaaaaa!!!!!

    If I remember correctly didn't one of the films also have a young Jackie Chan along with Richard "Jaws" Keil (in a souped up Mitsubishi) and also CRII had Jamie Farr (Klinger in M*A*S*H) and Telly Savalas (I think).

    Sorry, going for a lie down now having reached Saddo Factor 9!!!!!

    Does that mean the same in the states as it does in London, Pat? :rolleyes:

    Pat you have no shame, that film (regardless of who was in it) should never be mentioned in the same breath as Cannonball run. And who is Him!?!? Too much banding my friend!

    Can't believe nobody has mentioned Godfather (part one obviously) and The Goodfellas. Can't be bothered to list. But before you say it, it doesn't have Him yet the lists are still very impressive all the same.

    Okay...how about Robin Hood Men in Tights?
    Richard Lewis
    Dave Chappelle
    Isaac Hayes
    Tracey Ulman
    Patrick Stewart
    Div Van Patten
    Mel Brooks

    (is that getting closer?)

    BTW...thought of the Godfather, but CBA to look up who's in it ;)

    Thats getting a lot closer... Fantastic film... Even thought about dressing up as the merry men from that film at this years saddleworth beer walk...

    Godfather stars;

    Still not as good a cast as Cannonball Run though...

    Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back... can't remember the full line up right now, but i seem to remember being amazed by some of the guys they'd roped in on favours...

    Not a great film, but it was very funny though... :D

    Its absolutely nowhere even remotely near the calibre of Cannonball run in casting or quality... :-?
