PG-13 | | Action, Crime, Thriller
Los Angeles police officer Brian O'Connor must decide where his loyalty really lies when he becomes enamored with the street racing world he has been sent undercover to destroy.
The house used as headquarters for the FBI and LAPD undercover investigation is the same house that was used as Walter Matthau's house in Hanging Up (2000).
What are feeling, Lance... 40 weight? 50 weight?
Lance Nguyen: 40 Weight sounds nice...
When the racers are on their way to the first race, there is an aerial shot of above the street, and in the right side of the screen a lighting tower is visibly illuminating the street.
In the end credits, the main players have their names listed next to a sketch of their cars. Both the sketches and names are the same colors as the cars.
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.
