The title rights, not the story rights, to the film The Fast and the Furious (1954), were purchased so that the title could be used on this project, another film about racing. The original film was shown in a theater owned by the grandfather of producer Neal H. Moritz. See more »

You could push this across the finish line, or tow it.
You couldn't even tow that across the finish line.
I have faith in you, but this isn't a junkyard. This is a garage.

A mindlessly entertaining film, The Fast and the Furious features fun action, sexy cars and women as well as having some cool characters. Don't go into this film expecting it to engage your brain though or any Fast and Furious film for that matter. Thank you Rob Cohen for starting this franchise!
