| An action movie with a some-what plot, hot babes, fast cars, great action and a meet-expectations.
The Fast and the Furious is probably the first movie to get me into cars while at the same time enjoying myself without having to worry about a plot.

Paul Walker plays Brian O'Conner, a hot shot police officer, who goes undercover as a car junkie Brian Spilner to see if a local street racer/mechanic by the name of Dominic Toretto (Vin Diseal) has anything to do with hijacking a bunch of cargo from DVD's, TV's, entertainment sets, and so forth while at the same time falling head over heels for Dominic's sister Mia (Jordana Brewster). Brian comes so close while at the same time gaining trust to the target (Dominic) itself where it's only a matter of time before the truth comes out.

The film itself has the best action sequences involving street racing and high octane action where despite a so-so plot to follow, or one that's been seen before (such as Point Break), you don't have to worry about a thing. It's just pure fun.

The film also stars Michelle Rodriguez (S.W.A.T.) as Dominic's girlfriend, Letty; Ted Levine (The Silence of the Lambs) as Sgt. Tanner, and singer Ja Rule in a small cameo as a contestant against Dominic.

Trivia

At the house party, Dom says to Brian, "You can have any beer you want, as long as it's a Corona." This is a reference to automobile innovator Henry Ford. Although he probably never said, "You can have any color you want, as long as it's black," and although the Model T to which he was supposedly referring was made in several colors (including a couple of shades of green and red as well as gray, blue, and several others), the phrase has long been attributed to him, the Model T was not available in black during its first years of production.


Quotes

Dom: Jesse, since you were the first to reach in and grab some chicken, why don't you say grace?
Jesse: Dear Heavenly... uh...
Leon: Spirit.
Jesse: Spirit. Thank you. Thank you for providing us with the direct-port nitrous... uh... injection, four-core intercoolers, an' ...
Leon: ...


Goofs

When the agents are debating whether Mia is clouding the opinion of Brian, the dialogue is, "Hey, I don't blame you. I get off on her surveillance photos too." But he is clearly dubbed over saying, "Hey, I don't blame you. I beat off to her surveillance photos too.


Crazy Credits

The credits whiz by horizontally instead of scrolling vertically.


Alternate Versions

As shown on the DVD, director Rob Cohen and editor Peter Honess had to trim down the scene where Dom character is hijacking the truck towards the end of the film to secure a PG-13 rating. The trims made to avoid an R rating were the shots of Vince's arm being ripped by the wiring on the truck and the agony he expressed.
