Everything that's wrong in the Fast and the Furious

The title pretty much sums it up. Let's get a list of everything wrong in the fast and the furious series. Anybody want to contribute?

If you don't want in, then no need to follow the post.

I'd start with the ecessive line purging of the grey skyline at the start of the second movie.

yeah, the floor one is good ... obviously the floor panel is part of his aerodynamic bodykit ... so when the speed built up, the mountings couldn't take it (popping rivets out and such)

Slightly off topic, but in the same vein....
In The Rock, when Nicolas Cage is driving the Ferrari and he runs into a line of parking meters, smashing the windscreen. Next scene, nice shiny windscreen.

Yeah, it's a much shorter list.

I love the racing in the first one, with a supposedly 10 second car taking almost 30 seconds of screen time to get to speed, and both drivers shift like 11 times each...

I haven't watched the move enough times to notice all of the stupid shit they do. I watched both movies once and thought they were pretty good movies for their intended audiences. Ricers. But of course there were alot of stupid things done. Now you know a good car movie? Gone In 60 Seconds. And there was also that one movie with the British guy running from the cops...that inspired me.
