I'll wait for it to come out in DVD, rent it from Redbox for $1, and make a "back-up" on my computer. It is nice to see them including real muscle cars for once.

i'll make it. Nice to see them using real cars, not cg for the most part. I heard 250 cars used to shoot the movie- thats much better than the original- where some were total cg.

I actually perfer the term "riced and rediculus".

I gave them the benefit of the doubt on the third one as it was better than i expected, but a forth? C'mon... All we need now is a cheesy low budget movie titled "racecar" in parody of them.

You mean almost never-used muscle car "scene"?
More than 250 musclecar/trucks were built, and they will largely outnumber the imports.

LOL, if it was truly aimed at the Muscle Car Scene, it wouldn't be called Fast & Furious, it'd be called Rednecks in Heaven!

im taking my car up to the local theatre THURSDAY and parking it up by the entrance with 49 other cars for the movie. A local promoter is having a show up there from 5 to midnight and the 50 get to go in and see the movie at 6pm on thursday, the rest get to see it at midnight.

I have my doubts about the movie, but i couldnt argue with the free tickets and the front row parking.

Yeah, another "The Hacked and The Frivolous" movie in theaters. Wonderful.

Now we're gonna hafta figure out how to best arrange the family vehicles in our driveway throughout the summer, because there's no way in hell I'm parking my truck in the street overnight after the crazy trailer park Mexicans on the other side of town get another ego shot convincing them their sawn-up Neon is a real racecar.

I caught a glimpse of a couple desert prerunners in the TV trailers...ugh, be right back... ~runs to bathroom~

Well, for whatever reason you decide to watch it (to laugh at how bad it is, like certain cars/actors, like the music, action or whatever) have fun

I know I won't be in a hurry to watch it, but I will get round to it some day

The only reason why I would even see this movie is there a Ford RS200 in it, most likely a faker but still a RS200. But anyone with 1/2 a brain wouldn't streetrace one especially in the states, cop wouldn't need to bother chasing it. Only approx 200 RS200's were built in the 80's and number of them have been destroyed through rally/killing spree.

Obvious really, but the more different types of car you try to cram into a movie, the less believable it becomes...

I'll be waiting till it comes out on dvd. I've bought all the others for my collection and I'm sure this won't be any different.
