In a 2015 article with Variety, Vin Diesel revealed that he turned down a 25 million dollar offer from Universal Studios to return for this film. Diesel reasoned, that the premise of the film did not work, stating: "Universal Studios didn't take a Francis Ford Coppola approach to it. They approached it like they did sequels in '80s and '90s, when they would drum up a new story, unrelated for the most part, and slap the same name on it." See more »

On newer U.S. broadcasts of the film (as of 2008), all Pepsi logos have been removed. Most notable is the scene where the gold Supra crashes on the billboard sign after jumping the bridge. The Pepsi sign is replaced with a blank blue wall. See more »
The cars, the stunts and the eye candy (Eva Mendes) are better than the first. But unlike the first, 2 Fast 2 Furious still boasts a lacklustre plot. Nevertheless, it's a great "bro" movie for the guys. The partnership between Roman Pierce (Tyrese Gibson) and Brian O'Connor (Paul Walker) is amusing and works well as they team up and do next to impossible driving stunts with each other. The slight romance between Monica Fuentes (Eva Mendes) and Brian O'Connor is predictable, but it's not to the same extent as the first one - just a bit of flirtation but not to the extent of a full fledged relationship. The Miami backdrop adds to the "upgrade" feel of the second movie in the Fast & Furious franchise. Flashy and full of action is 2 Fast, 2 Furious.
