Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Execution is uninspired, laughs are hard to find, and the script is also difficult to locate."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Directed in slam-bang style by Hal Needham, the film is an endless string of cameo performances from a cast whose funny participants are badly outnumbered and whose television roots are unmistakable."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Directionless sequel that once again proves that the pictures that are the most fun to make aren't necessarily the most fun to watch."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Out of gas, full of celebs."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"There are nun jokes, mafia jokes, big breast jokes, karate jokes, Jaws jokes, more big breasts. It's a long ride."
‑ , Time Out
"The movie is a genuine cultural artifact, a relic given to us by a band of entertainers from long ago, who live in self-imposed exile in the dusty, neon hellhole of Las Vegas."
‑ Burl Burlingame, Honolulu Star-Advertiser
"A lazy, sloppily made sequel that doesn't play quite as badly now as it did in 1984. Besides, it's hard to hate a movie that casts Jim Nabors as Homer Lyle."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"A sputtering comedy."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Cannonball Run II is one of the laziest insults to the intelligence of moviegoers that I can remember. Sheer arrogance made this picture."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"This is an easy, madcap, guilty pleasure that plays like a hyperactive cross between Wacky Races and The Dukes of Hazard."
‑ Billy Mowbray, Film4
"Feels like home movie footage of a celebrity barbecue that you weren't invited to."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
