Relax and have fun
22 June 2003 | by realtobiSee all my reviews

Nice movie to just lean back, chill and watch hot girls,hot cars and hot action - there is no need of complex story or reality. And the black guy is really funny, so take some friends, some money for popcorn and nachos and chill out ;)
