Since we've become a nation of 9-mile-per-gallon, automatic-transmission SUV-driving sissies, a movie about the blood-curdling speed you can achieve in a Honda Civic is probably all we deserve.

The plot gets ridiculous as it's slowly revealed that one of them isn't what they seem to be at first, and continues to get more preposterous, but with better car crashes!

The guys in F & F are all wusses. Lara Croft and Charlie's Angels could kick all of their asses.

It's all testosterone and swagger, and tries so hard to be cool that it's just the opposite.

... when characters are not racing at breakneck speed, the movie as a whole ceases to move.

The Fast and the Furious" is the perfect movie to watch on DVD. You can hit a few buttons and check out the three action scenes worth seeing, surrendering only 10 minutes of your life.

It may just be too bad to be 'so bad, it's good.'

The street racing scenes, jam-packed with nubile young women bursting out of their tiny clothes, make beer commercials look realistic.

One of those movies where you're waiting impatiently for the tedious expository scenes to get over with so you can see more driving.
