John Singleton originally wanted rapper Ja Rule to reprise his Edwin character from the original The Fast and the Furious (2001). Ja turned it down feeling, as Singleton put it, "He was too big" for the role. This led Singleton to create the Tej Parker character with Ludacris ultimately cast. See more »
During the opening race why would any of the drivers Brian, Suki, Julius, & Slap Jack jump their cars at the bridge? The race was run for $3500/entrant for a total winnings of $10,500 not counting their own wager; all three cars that went over landed with enough force to cause structural damage to the vehicles, well in excess of the race winnings.

2 times the fast 2 times the furious but still not better than the original.
This film brings back more of what we loved from the first film with all the cars, girls, and action and multiplies it. However it is still inferior to the first film but that dosen't mean it isn't awesome. This movie has gotten a lot of criticism and i don't understand why there is so much hate for this movie. Some people complained about the lack of plot and the casts acting skills but I don't care about that. I watch these Fast films to be entertained and I was throughly entertained with this one. Even though it dosen't match up to the original it still excels in excitement. I mean how could you go wrong with taking the series to Miami were our eyes will be blessed with dozens of beautiful beach girls. And the races in this movie are also very exciting to. And let's not forget the awesome chase sequence in the film as well. Paul Walker and Tyrese Gibson make a great team and show us why this movie is so cool. I still love this movie despite the many negative reviews I've seen and to all the haters I say forget about the plot and just enjoy the perks. This movie is made for entertainment not Oscar awards and as far as entertainment goes It was grade A popcorn style.
