Wealthy businessmen, Big Enos Burdette and his son Little Enos, offer legendary trucker Bo "Bandit" Darville $80.000 to haul 400 cases of Coors 1,800 miles from Texarkana to Georgia in 28 hours. The reason so much money? - transporting Coors into certain states is bootlegging. Bandit recruits good buddy Cledus "Snowman" Snow; and with a high powered Trans Am he drives as "blocker" (distracting police attention), their marathon through Arkansa, Mississippi and Alabama begins easily.
That is till Bandit picks up runaway bride Carrie ("Frog"), then becomes the object of a fast and funny manhunt carried out by Texas "County Mounty" Sheriff Buford T. Justice and his son Junior - Carrie's jilted fiance.
