"A movie for 14-year-old boys who wear their pants three sizes too big."
1 stars

Grow up, people. I mean, I'm all about the silly when it's done in a smart way, and I can even admit to having enjoyed (parts of) The Fast and The Furious, but this woeful sequel, which has nothing in common with the first film other than Paul Walker and some fast cars, is some of the laziest, stupidest, most incompetent filmmaking I've seen since the recent remake of Rollerball. It's expensive, loud, dumb as a shoe, and compeltely without a point. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that if you really liked this film, you have a career working in fast food to look forward to.

Get it? Fast food?

So Paul Walker is back as the former cop who can drive fast and finked on Vin Diesel a few years ago. Now he's being recruited by a guy who wants to have the fastest driver in town move some crap for him. Cue races where lots of illegal street racers try to outrun each other to get the big job.

And basically, that's as far as I'm going to go with storyline recitation because, frankly, those with brains don't care, and those without don't read.

This movie is a steaming pile of doody. If you took all the words and looked each one up in the dictionary, only half would have actual definitions, and the rest would consist of two syllables a pop. That is, unless you're talking about car parts, in which case the cast can suddenly sound like uber-machano-scientists merged with auto racing brand name marketers.

"Gee, I would have been nowhere without my NOS. Once the hydrodefibrillator on the halfcrank hoobastank started hitting max RPMs, I was wacked by G forces and internal combustovibrationism from the poonani. Bro."

Seriously, the parts of this film that weren't written by product placement lawyers must have been written by 12-year-olds. It's as if the screenplay was written like this:

Paul Walker: Sup, G! Y0Ur so M0n3y! 1'd lik3 to t@p th@t b0Oty, yo.

Has it all come to this? Are we now so obsessed with conformity that we'll all make ourselves dumber just to fit in? Has a generation of teenage boys been raised on such bad parenting and awful TV that the very act of speaking now requires more work to say less - just because everyone else is doing it?

And why, when you're spending a hundred million bucks on a film, does nobody seem to bother spending half a million on the actual script?

Of course the retarded amongst us will decry this review as "fuct" and say I know shit about cars and this movie rocks ass, but really, if I gave a red rat's ass what some acne-riddled teenager who won't be allowed to drive for two years and wishes his parents called him G-Money thought about my work, I'd probably go buy a trailer home, start drinking malt liquor, marry a fat chick with most of her teeth and spend the next forty years beating women and shooting stuffed animals off the roof of an abandoned Chevy for kicks. Instead, to quote a movie with far more intellect than this dreck could ever boast, "I weep for the future."
