    • Taglines:
      1. "What we have here is a total lack of respect for the law!"
      2. Meet Bo Darville, aka, "The Bandit." Smokies (Cops) hate him. Guys dig him. And even girls can't get enough of him!
      3. It's Burt Reynolds, Sally Field and Jackie Gleason, in high gear and hot water!
      4. Time to take to the road, for a quiet little drive in the country...or not.
