A movie about an undercover cop who tries to become a street racer to stop high speed truck hijackings. They race, somebody dies, it has a dramatic ending. I liked it.

but the reception...is so/so.

here's my thoughts.
its a good movie. the plot is not as deep as i wouldve liked, but its a fun movie to watch while chilling at home on a rainy day. it did fuel the import boom in the US and also street racing in Cali. but its not a car advertisement, its a MOVIE!! LOL
you cant blame a movie for its interpretation by the viewers!
its not supposed to be funny, or realistic, or whatever, its just an action/fun movie.
dude i just saw The Fast and the Furious yesterday, it wasnt a great plot but overall a good movie, and barring the misinterpretation of the movie that says "Go get an import car and lets go cook some rice" the cars actually looked cool

Summer 2001 film about an undercover police officer (Paul Walker) who finds himself deep into L.A. illegal street racing, helps his friend and falls in love. Most racing/car movies suck anyways (Gone in 60 seconds) but this one had a good storyline for a movie about cars/racing because like I said, most race movies suck ass (Days of Thunder). Watch for the end race scene. Color 147 minutes Pg-13. Dir: Rob Cohen. Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez.
That kid must of thought he was in The Fast and the Furious. He got arrested for going 103 in a 25 mile zone.

The movie that doubled the price of Toyota Supras just because they were in the movie. The only good part of the movie is when Vin Diesel drives the dragster on the street.
D00d I bought Fast and the Furious

The Holy Grail of rice-boy movies (you know, the loud, obnoxious kids with slow cars). Explains many mysteries and fads of the current import car scene. Proves that form over function is the true defenition of import racing and that one don't have to go fast to win a race. Promotes the use of obscure facts (read: HP/L is more important than HP or lb/ft). Also, a great insult for a wannabe stunt double for said movie. It's nitrous, morons.
Man I just watched The Fast and the Furious! Now I gotta get an APC wing, fart cannon muffler, LED washer nozzles and some phat stickers if I'm gonna beat those dumbestic white boys! AZN POWAH.

A completely pointless modification done to a car not worth modifying.
1. Look at that fast and the furious spoiler on that Cavalier.

2. Hey, do you hear that fast and the furious exhaust on that Civic?

People that generally do things quickly and people that are extremely angry.
Jeff can run a mile in 4 1/2 minutes. Kevin always gets really mad and beats the shit out of people. Together, I'd probably consider them to be the fast and the furious.
