Gear Up for 'Baby Driver' With Edgar Wright

Baby Driver writer and director Edgar Wright shares easter eggs from the movie and his favorite heists.

Edit

Storyline

Baby is a young and partially hearing impaired getaway driver who can make any wild move while in motion with the right track playing. It's a critical talent he needs to survive his indentured servitude to the crime boss, Doc, who values his role in his meticulously planned robberies. However, just when Baby thinks he is finally free and clear to have his own life with his new girlfriend, Debora, Doc coerces him back for another job. Now saddled with a crew of thugs too violently unstable to keep to Doc's plans, Baby finds himself and everything he cares for in terrible danger. To survive and escape the coming maelstrom, it will take all of Baby's skill, wits and daring, but even on the best track, can he make it when life is forcing him to face the music? Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Trivia

The studio pressured Edgar Wright to cut the foot chase scene because the movie was starting to go over-budget. Wright deferred a portion of his directing fee to ensure the scene was completed. See more »

Goofs

When the silver Ford Taurus is going into the crusher (after Baby is told to "sunset that ride"), just after the car is dropped into the crusher, the Taurus suddenly becomes a different car (the change is easily noticed by the different door handles), and in one shot, the engine appears to have been removed.

Quotes

Deborah: [Last Lines] Hey Baby, you know it's funny. Even though I heard it so many times in the court case, I still can't get used to the fact that your real name is Miles. It's a cool name though. I can think of a lot of great Miles songs. But we still have to get through all those Baby songs first. I can't wait until the day when it's just us, music and the road. See you later Baby. All my love, Debora.

All those lines of dialog ending in "baby" ...
14 July 2017 | by paraduxSee all my reviews

... give me flashbacks to DIRTY DANCING.

1. You can't force "clever." Something is either clever or it is not. This film is ambitious but not clever. If you want clever, done right, watch Lucky Number Sleven.

2. The romantic arc is weird, too convenient, not well developed and there is no chemistry.

3. To borrow a line from Kevin Spacey's dialog, you want the good news? The good news is that the romantic arc is not an issue because this film a much bigger issue. No audience connection. By the 60 minute minute I did not care about Baby, or his instant girlfriend, or Spacey, of anyone. OK, I actually did care about the little kid who played the nephew. He should have starred.

4. For those who care about dramatic structure, Fox's character is so top-heavy that he should be counter-point. But to who? Baby is so lightweight for most the movie that he cannot be counterpoint to Fox and Spacey at the same time.

Over-rated to a scary degree. No wonder no two people can agree on anything anymore.
