The F&F movies... ah, how I hate them so much. They slotted a Toyota Chaser in the movie, I'm not happy at all

my mom and dad works for GM and she going to lose her job b/c of that and some of my freinds mom and dads work for FORD and there loseing there jobs too not good they should have some GM and FORD cars in there movies

robert
... and my dad is just staying afloat because Honda'* Ontario operations are the only thing keeping his work alive; good ol' Ford'* mismanagement with that conflagration that they call the Freestar. Honda/Toyota is a huge help to the local economy.

Theres definitely some American muscle in the preview I saw at the movies just Saturday. A late 60'* Fastback Stang (maybe 67) and a early 70'* Gm it could have been a 67 - 70 chevelle, it was a real short scene.

And Robert, how many American parts do you think are in your Ford or GM today?
I'd bet its pretty low, the big 3 put the hurt on themselves, not a movie.

You got something to back that up? Imports are crap, thats why their sales quadropled (sp? lol) while GM and Fords are down considerably. WTG

I beg to differ on the acting getting worse. The acting in 2F2F was 10x better than the acting in FatF. It had its weak points, but it was overall better.

I guess they used the imported version of the Yenko Camaro and supercharged Charger.
The movies just plain weren't good movies, weak plots and awful acting. It'* what I expect to be popular with a generation that grew up with an MTV that doesn't actually play music. That'* what the M stands for
oh i agree, fully

i remember when they actually played music on mtv.. back in like '95 when i first started really watching tv. watching smashing pumpkins, and all the other groups from that time on mtv during daytime tv in the summer LOL

I saw the preview once and it almost looked like traffic was driving in the right lane. Can anyone confirm this? In Japan they drive like the Brits, in the left lane(drivers door is toward the roadside).

Yep, they have right-hand drive in Japan, driving on the left side of the road.

The movie was filmed in California; several automotive forum type people have stumbled across the set, I've seen pics.

Did you just call me tiger? Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but if you are going to make an outlandish statement you better be able to back it up. The world is flat. Cell phones will lead to the distruction of the earth. Bonnevilles are slow. Fish don't need water to survive. Domestics suck. Exercise is bad for you. All cops are dumb. <edited to remove personal insults>
