Dean Martin & Sammy Davis Jr. Team Up In Cannonball Run II

Cannonball Run II was released in 1984. The film is considered by most critics and fans to be inferior to the original movie. There were a couple of things I enjoyed about this one. There were some great cast additions, such as Shirley MacLaine and Frank Sinatra. It was neat to see them acting alongside Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. While I think Dino and Sammy had some great lines in the first movie, they also had some really cool ones this time around too. Here's a clip of a scene between Sammy (as Morris Fenderbaum) and Dean Martin (as Jamie Blake). It's when Fenderbaum is trying to convince Blake to team up again for the latest Cannonball race. This scene really plays up on some of the qualities many of us find so cool about Dino. I really love the part about the dry martinis. I hope you enjoy it.

Hey pallie DMP. I knew how much you dig this flick. There are some funny lines here between Dino and Sammy. I prefer the first movie. I love their disguises in that one more, plus I loved all the lines Dino did as a drunk and randy priest. This one is still awesome. I really love this clip.

I didn't really care for this movie that much. It wasn't as good as the first one. I did like seeing Dean and Sammy together again. Thanks for sharing this clip with us here. This is one of the funniest scenes in the movie.

That's totally understandable. It gets mixed reaction. Most people prefer the first one. What I like about this one is some of the additional cast, plus Dino and Sammy back again. Glad you dig this clip. It was pretty cool.
