Although Lucas White is mostly a parody of Paul Walker's Brian O'Connor, his name may be a reference to Lucas Black, who played protagonist Sean Boswell in "Tokyo Drift". See more »

More of an embarrassment to itself than a parody of Fast and Furious
Long gone are the days of Hot Shots, Naked Gun and even Scary Movie. All we have now is the likes of Superfast! whose biggest advantage is tailgating the release date of Fast and Furious 7. A few good jokes and impressions aside, the film is ironically incredibly slow, churning already rehearsed juvenile jokes repeatedly to achieve some form of entertainment.
Story is inspired by the Fast and Furious titles, mainly the earlier one. An undercover cop is trying to infiltrate a crew of street race. It matters little since barely any of it makes sense anyway. The cast is selected primary due to their resemblances to Fast and Furious characters, give or take. Fake Paul Walker misses the mark by miles.
Character development is non-existent, unless you count Fake Michelle Rodriguez coming in term with her lesbian urge as one. At midway point the film even abandons names altogether and called its characters Rapper Cameo or such, which is admittedly pretty good. Fake Rock is also decent, he looks particularly similar to real Rock even down to the gestures. It's a bit creepy honestly.
Script material has been around for more than a decade, people tend to jest about the highly implausible nature of Fast and Furious. Unfortunately, Superfast! does so little original humor as it relies on heavy slapstick and actual slapping. There's a heap of brash jokes to induce cringe effect on the audience. A couple of the gags are acceptable, such as the commentary on usual pop culture or when it breaks the fourth wall.
I guess if a film takes lots of pot shots, some will eventually land. It also remembers to spice up the scenes with scantily clad women, although one can't blame it for following this already proved exciting gimmick. The whole movie felt so lengthy, I could've sworn that it was more than two hours as it drove around in circles.
There are a couple of amusing bits, especially when it has lowered your standard after a few scenes. These are still not enough as incentive to take a slow tedious drive with Superfast!.
