The 10 Worst One-Liners In The Franchise, According To Reddit

The 10th Fast & Furious movie is currently in production, which is going to be the biggest one yet, and it has just been revealed that Brie Larson is playing Brian O’Connor’s sister. With an ever-growing cast of A-list stars, the franchise has come a long way since its relatively humble beginnings.

But one thing has remained a constant in the always-evolving series, which is the abundance of awful one-liners. In some cases, it’s why fans love the series, but other fans find them distracting, and sometimes they ruin the whole movie for them. Between over-the-top macho insults, failed out-of-character catchphrases, and awful attempts to be hip, this is first draft material.

“You Almost Had Me? You Never Had Me. You Never Had Your Car.”

The Fast and the Furious is a movie unrecognizable from its sequels, as it’s actually about street racing, and many fans of the most recent movies often forget that. But one of the most iconic scenes in the first movie isn’t the first race between Brian and Dom, but the conversation that follows. Brian laughs and claims he almost had Dom, to which Dom responds absolutely ripping into the undercover FBI agent.

Ryaneffintaylor thinks it’s one of the worst lines in the entire series, noting, “that movie is a gold mine for terrible lines,” and calls Dom’s line their personal favorite. But what follows is arguably even more ridiculous, as Dom describes Brian’s racing style as “granny shifting.”

“Smack That A**!”
Suki, 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)

The first few Fast & Furious movies almost work as an anthology, as they all feature mostly entirely different characters and are set in different locations. 2 Fast 2 Furious was the first example of that, as the movie replaced Dom’s crew with street racing caricatures, as each racer hilariously dressed in the same colors as their souped-up cars.

Suki, dressed in all pink and purple drives a convertible Honda S2000 in the same colors, and her dialogue is just as over the top too. Pacsun_bro recalls when Suki “yells ‘smack that a**’ when she jumps her car off of a bridge. It might be a pretty adrenaline-fuelled moment, but excitedly screaming “Smack that a**!” while risking her life is almost as confusing as the title 2 Fast 2 Furious.

“That’s The Thing About Street Fights. The Street Always Wins.”

The final five minutes of Furious 7 are surprisingly touching, as it’s such a heartfelt tribute to Paul Walker following his death and is enough to make anyone cry. But it follows some of the series’ most ridiculous moments yet. Leopardchief recalls the climactic moment of Dom and Deckard Shaw’s showdown.

The Redditor explains the line is “one I always thought was kinda cool until I suddenly realized it really wasn’t. After Dom tells Deckard “the street always wins,” which in itself already doesn’t make any sense, Dom stomps on the ground of a parking lot, forcing it to cave in on itself completely. Many movies didn’t research their subject matter, and the Furious 7 writers certainly didn’t brush up on their physics.

Edwin, The Fast And The Furious (2001)

In The Fast and the Furious, Ja Rule plays street racer Edwin, and it started the tradition of popular rappers getting roles in the franchise, as Ludacris was cast in 2 Fast 2 Furious, and Lil Bow Wow appeared in Tokyo Drift. However, Edwin is a strange character in what is one of the weirdest micro-subplots of the original movie.

Edwin is promised a threesome from Monica if he wins the race, but this user points out that the weirdest part is when he screams her name when other cars pass him, hilariously as if it’s such a compelling arc with so much at stake. Edwin is then shown up by Monica, as not only does she not reward him with a threesome, but she also breaks up with him after not winning the race.

“I Said Forget About It, Cuh.”
Brian O’Connor, 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)

Earic23 points out, “Paul Walker saying, ‘I said forget about it, cuh’ to Tyrese is also hilarious.” While the first movie in the franchise led the zeitgeist, the sequel seemingly desperately tried to appeal to hip audiences, and the result was a screenplay that feels like it was written by grandparents after overhearing teenagers converse.

One of the slang words the movie heavily uses is “cuh,” an abbreviation of “cousin,” and it’s so distracting every time a character says it. An even bigger offender than the line the Redditor refers to is the very last line in the film, as Brain tells Rome, “These pockets aren’t empty, cuh” after stealing contraband from the scene of the crime. 2 Fast 2 Furious makes the first movie look effortlessly cool by comparison.

“Donkey Kong?”
Sean Boswell, The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)

The stakes in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift are unquestionably lower than its predecessors, as it’s simply about teenagers racing cars than following undercover FBI agents. And that meant that the one-liners were a lot more free-flowing too. However, not all of them landed, and TheRealMacresco thinks the biggest offender was when Sean Boswell thought DK, which is short for Drift King, was short for Donkey Kong.

The Redditor thinks it was totally unrealistic that Sean would have said that, and even more unrealistic that, being the car enthusiast that he is, didn’t know what drifting was. Between the Tokyo setting and the unique aesthetic, Tokyo Drift is totally underrated, but this line is unforgivable.

“A Whole Lot Of Vaginal Activity.”
Roman Pearce, Fast Five (2011)

The unnecessary amount of crotch shots has always been one of the franchise’s shortcomings, and they massively cheapen the movies, but Fast Five took it to another unruly level with this ridiculous one-liner that this Redditor refers to. Rome especially has been one of the cruder characters in the franchise, but all of his previous activity looks like a saint’s behavior compared to this quote.

What makes it particularly cringey is that it’s in response to learning that the heist will result in an $11 million payout for each crew member. The quote feels like it was a placeholder in the screenplay for a better line, but it somehow never got changed from the first draft.

“Street’s Closed, Pizza Boy. Find Another Way Home.”
Leon, The Fast And The Furious (2001)
Leon drives across the desert in The Fast and the Furious

Pmuranal hates the line that appears in the first Fast & Furious movie. The line appears after street racers have closed off the road for the race, and Leon rather impolitely tells a delivery driver to find another road. It’s not the best-written line, it seems pretty pointless, and it’s unquestionably and transparently Pizza Hut product placement.

However, a fan theory makes the quote great, as it’s commonly speculated that it might have been the disgruntled delivery driver who called the police on the street racers after being embarrassed. And that adds a whole other level to the short and seemingly inconsequential scene.

“Time To Unleash The Beast.”
Dominic Toretto, Furious 7 (2015)

x-Justice thinks there’s no worse line in the franchise than when Dom utters the above right before he’s about to drive a sports car out of a skyscraper in Dubai. The Redditor comments, It is by far the corniest line I have ever heard in a movie given the context of it. Dom from the original F&F would never, ever say some wack s*** like that.”

There are plenty of Fast & Furious quotes that sum up Dom, and while his obsession with family has been turned into a meme, it’s a quintessential part of who he is. However, the line in Furious 7 before crashing through not one, not two, but three skyscrapers is completely out of character.

“Dom Is Like Gravity, Everything Is Just Attracted To Him.”
Mia Toretto, The Fast And The Furious (2001)

The Fast & Furious franchise has always kept science at arm’s length, and it isn’t exactly going to win any awards for being the most factually accurate when it comes to physics. But Gstdog points out that before the series was defying physics with massive stunts, the first movie could even get the law of gravitation right.

In the first movie, Mia tells Brian, “Dom is like gravity; everything is just attracted to him,” The Redditor points out that gravity certainly doesn’t work like that, and they hilariously correct the quote, explaining that if Dom is like gravity, then “he makes people feel attraction to bodies of large mass.”

Fast & Furious 11 Release Delay & Filming Start Date Confirmed By Director


Fast and Furious 11
is facing a release date delay to Summer 2026 due to strikes, with director Louis Leterrier confirming the sequel will not be hitting its April 4, 2025 date.
Leterrier also confirms that filming starts in Fall 2025 after finishing a horror movie in September.
The final installment in the
Fast Saga
reunites Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto for one last ride, while also leaving the door open for other spinoffs.

After facing multiple delays due to the 2023 SAG-AFTRA and Writers Guild of America strikes, Fast and Furious 11 is seeing its release date delayed. The next installment in the Vin Diesel-fronted franchise is expected to be the last mainline sequel, while development continues on the Dwayne Johnson-led spinoff Hobbs & Reyes, a mysterious standalone movie penned by Fast X’s Zach Dean and a potential female-led spinoff. While a filming start date was never confirmed, Universal had previously set the movie for an April 2025 release date.

During a recent interview with Collider at a CCXP MX panel, Louis Leterrier was asked for an update on Fast and Furious 11. The director went on to confirm that the final mainline installment in the action franchise will no longer be making its April 4, 2025 release date, instead now aiming for a Summer 2026 release window with the filming start date being set for this fall. Check out what Leterrier said below:

It’s happening. It’s happening very, very soon. I’m able to shoot a little horror movie this summer. I’m finishing my horror movie on September 15th, and I start Fast on September 16th.

Will Fast 11’s Multiple Delays Help Or Hurt The Sequel?

Much like the tenth film before it, Fast and Furious 11 has faced a few behind-the-scenes hardships in its road to getting off the ground, namely the delays stemming from the 2023 strikes. While the latest movie seems to have retained its core creative team in comparison to the shift in directors from franchise vet Justin Lin to Leterrier on Fast X after reported creative differences between the former and Diesel, this change didn’t seem to help much with the continued downward trend recent sequels have seen from critics. Check out how the franchise’s Rotten Tomatoes scores compare below:

Title RT Critical Score RT Audience Score The Fast and the Furious 54% 74% 2 Fast 2 Furious 37% 50% The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift 37% 69% Fast & Furious 28% 67% Fast Five 78% 83% Fast & Furious 6 71% 84% Furious 7 81% 82% The Fate of the Furious 67% 72% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw 67% 88% F9: The Fast Saga 59% 82% Fast X 56% 84%

Even looking outside the Fast and Furious franchise, many movie sequels have found themselves hurt by various delays, be they from creative changes, general release shifts or other factors. The action genre in particular is one in which lengthier development periods can lead to diminishing returns, be it A Good Day to Die Hard, Rambo: Last Blood or Diesel’s own xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. While Fast and Furious 11 may only be getting pushed back by a year, the delay is nonetheless a concern that the final installment could find itself in trouble.

On the other hand, the longer wait for Fast and Furious 11 to close out the mainline series of movies could actually prove beneficial for the sequel. Though Leterrier may be busy with another project in the lead-up to filming the next installment, writers Oren Uziel and Christina Hodson should now have more than enough time to really look back at the script and ensure it learns from the critical missteps of recent installments to deliver a satisfying conclusion to the Dominic Toretto saga.

Vin Diesel Already Has His Perfect Fast & Furious Replacement Franchise With 51-Year-Old Remake


Vin Diesel’s dominance in Fast & Furious is ending, but Kojak could kick off a new action franchise for him.
Kojak’s reboot faces an uncertain future, but its similarity to Fast & Furious makes it a worthy project for Diesel.
Diesel’s potential shift from criminal racer to cop signifies a fresh start in a possible Fast & Furious-like series.

Vin Diesel’s days of playing Dominic Toretto are numbered, but the actor has already found his perfect Fast & Furious replacement. Diesel found a major breakout role in the early 2000s thanks to participating in The Fast and the Furious. The original 2001 street racing crime movie became the springboard for a sprawling franchise that has lasted for over two decades. The success of the Fast & Furious movies transformed Vin Diesel’s career, turning him into an even bigger star, especially in the action movie genre. But, Fast & Furious 11 is planned as the final chapter for him and the franchise.

The Fast & Furious franchise’s end will put Vin Diesel in an unfamiliar position of not having a major franchise to lean back on. This presents the actor with various options, such as changing the course of his career to pursue non-franchise roles. However, the more likely outcome is that Diesel will attempt to find a new IP that can replace Fast & Furious. He has had trouble in that regard recently, with franchises like xXx or Riddick running cold and Bloodshot and The Last Witch Hunter failing to launch franchises. There is another option for Diesel, though.

Kojak Can Be Vin Diesel’s New Action Crime Franchise After Fast & Furious
Diesel Has Been Developing The Reboot Since 2015

The impending conclusion of the Fast & Furious franchise means it is finally time for Vin Diesel’s Kojak reboot to get off the ground. The project was announced back in 2015 with Diesel re-teaming with Universal Pictures, the studio behind Fast & Furious, to develop a movie based on Kojak. The original TV series starred Telly Savalas as Theo Kokaj and ran for three seasons after debuting in 1973. The series revolves around Kojak, a New York detective known for being willing to go beyond the law and a love for cars and lollipops, and follows him as he investigates different cases.

Kojak was rebooted in 2005 as a TV show starring Ving Rhames, but it only ran for six episodes

Development on Vin Diesel’s Kojak movie has not been very active in the nine years since it was announced. However, it still maintains the base similarities to Fast & Furious, which makes the project a worthwhile endeavor for Diesel in terms of finding a new action franchise. He would now have another big action series about cars and crime, essentially making Kojak into a newer version of Fast & Furious. The irony here is that Diesel takes on the role of a cop after playing criminal racer Dominic Toretto.

Vin Diesel’s Involvement Can Morph Kojak Into A Major Action Franchise
Kojak Could Be A Fast & Furious Clone

Looking at the original TV show, Kojak might not necessarily project to be a major blockbuster action franchise akin to Fast & Furious. The TV series was relatively grounded and small due to the nature of its production. However, the fact that Diesel and Universal pinpointed this property as something they wanted to revive together is telling. The announcement of Kojak’s reboot came months after Furious 7 debuted in theaters and took the franchise to new heights at the box office and in terms of how ridiculously big the action and story could get.

It’s sometimes difficult to remember that Fast & Furious started off with a story about DVD thieves who were also street racers before Diesel helped turn it into something much bigger. With that experience and success already behind him, it would be understandable if a similar path was envisioned for Kojak. The series could then morph into a Fast & Furious clone, one that gives Vin Diesel a new franchise to headline and Universal a “fresh” action franchise to grow.

The Rock’s WWE Run Means Fast & Furious 11 Must Make 1 Major Hobbs Change


Hobbs from Fast & Furious 11 needs a gritty edge like The Rock’s WWE character to keep the franchise fresh and exciting.
The Rock’s time away from the Fast & Furious universe provides the perfect reason for Hobbs to return with a personal vendetta and a more savage attitude.
While Hobbs shouldn’t become a full-fledged villain in Fast & Furious 11, adding some edginess and dirty tricks could make his character more intriguing and dynamic.

Fast & Furious 11 must make one major Hobbs change after The Rock’s incredible WWE run. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s WWE return surpassed his recent movies, with the actor creating some of the best work of his career. Having returned to a thunderous reception, The Rock was able to flip the crowd’s reception by becoming a heel and playing a major part in WrestleMania’s main events. The Rock hasn’t played a villain on screen for years, as even his depiction of Black Adam lent more into the character’s anti-hero side, which made his wrestling run all the more refreshing.

While his wrestling character may not perfectly translate into the Fast & Furious universe, there is one aspect of The Rock’s WWE run that the franchise should attempt to implement. After debuting in Fast Five, The Rock’s best Fast & Furious scenes helped contribute to the movie series becoming so popular, with Luke Hobbs becoming an instrumental part of the story. He was even given his own spinoff alongside Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) and is set to get a solo movie in the future. Despite this, Hobbs would still benefit from adding one key aspect of The Rock’s WWE run.

Given how electrifying The Rock’s recent WWE run was, there is no doubt Fast & Furious 11 needs to give Hobbs more of an edge. Although the character has had his more serious moments, like most of the Fast & Furious cast, Hobbs tends to mix action with comedy. Hobbs and Shaw are supposed to be two of the more stoic heroes, yet they are constantly at each other’s throats and cracking jokes to help maintain the franchise’s lighthearted core. However, giving Hobbs a grittier side would help the character thrive upon his return.

The Rock’s Fast & Furious return may redeem Fast X’s box office, but the character needs to come back stronger than ever. By allowing him to be more ruthless, he can still maintain some elements of comedy but also become more interesting in the process. Johnson proved that despite being a detestable heel, he was still as hilarious as ever during his recent WWE tenure. This proves that he can maintain Fast & Furious’ tone and humorous style while being more layered; therefore, Hobbs adopting some of The Rock’s WWE characteristics could make him even more entertaining.

Fast & Furious Already Has A Reason For Hobbs To Be More Savage
Hobbs Has Been Away From The Franchise For Several Years

Making a major change to Hobbs’ character could be tough to explain, but Fast & Furious 11 already has a great reason to make him more savage. His four-year absence from the franchise gives him a perfect excuse to come back with a vengeance and potentially have a personal attachment to Fast & Furious 11’s villains. Hobbs’ time away from the main story could be explained through a connection to Fast X’s secondary villain, Aimes. Aimes’ villain twist in Fast X was well executed and suggests he’ll be around for the sequel, which is the perfect reason to bring back Hobbs.

Having a more personal story with one of the villains could allow Hobbs to continue his great quips and one-liners, but it would also give him more of an edge.

Fast X never explained why he’s back, but having a personal vendetta against Aimes could be an intriguing reason. Given Dom and Dante are the focal point of the franchise’s conclusion, Hobbs returning to take down Aimes would avoid overshadowing the main story while still giving him an interesting role. Having a personal story with one of the villains could allow Hobbs to continue his great quips and one-liners, while also giving him more of an edge. This provides The Rock with the perfect reason to implement some of his heel traits while still portraying a morally good hero.

2:34 Image 147 Related Predicting The Ending Of All 13 Fast & Furious Characters In Fast 11 The Fast Saga is set to conclude with Fast & Furious 11 – or Fast X 2 – but how will Dom Toretto and his family’s stories come to a definitive end?

Why Fast & Furious Can’t Bring The Rock Back As A Villain
Hobbs Already Appeared As An Antagonist In Fast Five
A custom image featuring Dwayne Johnson as Luke Hobbs in the Fast and Furious movies Custom image by Debanjana Chowdhury

Although The Rock’s villainous tendencies worked well in the WWE, Fast & Furious can’t bring him back as an antagonist. Johnson already played the main villain of Fast Five, as Hobbs was originally an enemy of Dom and his crew before becoming an ally. Hobbs’ role in Fast Five was one of his best, but despite being the main antagonist, he always had a level of integrity. Dropping all of this to make him a villain in the final movie would be completely unnecessary, especially as the franchise needs him to remain a hero for his spinoff.

Fast & Furious 11 may end the main story, but The Rock will be part of the franchise beyond this, and altering his character so drastically wouldn’t make any sense. Instead, adding some extra edge to his character would have the same effect and would avoid stealing the thunder from Dante and Aimes. Although Fast & Furious 11 shouldn’t make him a villain, the film can still allow Hobbs to play dirty and pull some cheap tricks in order to show a grittier side, while letting him taunt his enemies when he inevitably helps save the day.
