Los Angeles street racer Dominic Toretto falls under the suspicion of the LAPD as a string of high-speed electronics truck robberies rocks the area. Brian O'Connor, an officer of the LAPD, joins the ranks of Toretto's highly skilled racing crew undercover to convict Toretto. However, O'Connor finds himself both enamored with this new world and in love with Toretto's sister, Mia. As a rival racing crew gains strength, O'Connor must decide where his loyalty really lies.Written by
Dominic's RX-7 originally had a roll cage. It was removed to accommodate Vin Diesel's physique. See more »
Johnny Tran isn't happy when he sees two empty engine bays, and suspects Ted of being responsible for selling the Nissan SR20 motors. The problem is that the cars in the shot are Hondas, and couldn't have been fitted with the SR20 engines due to the FWD-RWD difference. See more »
Are you going native on me, Brian?
I think the sister's clouding his judgement.
What was that?
Hey, I don't blame you. I get off on her surveillance photos too.

When you watch Fast and the Furious, please don't take it as a serious work of drama. Watch it as a mindless movie with fast cars and attractive women. With that said you would consider it a masterpiece.
True, the movie has bad acting and poor story, but that is what makes it a marvelous popcorn film. My friends and I spend hours mocking the film and its horrendous dialogue. The movie is full of silly lines bound to make you laugh. Just check the memorable quotes section. There are so many classic scenes that make it a campy movie. Some scenes and dialogue is so ridiculous that it is too much fun to ridicule and imitate. It so bad it's good. Plus it is very watchable because of the fast cars and hot girls. I'm not sure if the filmmakers intentionally had the goal of "so bad it's good" but the cast and crew have made this into one of the best unintentionally funny films of all time.
I urge each living soul to witness this magnificent work of art with an open mind and sense of humor. You won't regret it.
(Another note: Ja Rule is terrific in this film. He produces the all-time greatest cameo. Unintentional or not it is a work of genius in the comedy department. He is a pure delight to see him on screen.)
