10 Most Cringeworthy Parts, According To Reddit

Fast X, the tenth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise, is currently in development, and all of the production troubles, such as director Justin Lin leaving, have led to an inflated budget of $340 million. That means that Fast X is one of the most expensive movies ever made, and it also means that it’ll likely have way more cringe-worthy moments than any other F&F release too.

As fun as the street-racing-turned-action franchise is, between the melodramatic dialogue delivery, character choices, and family barbeques, the series is notoriously cheesy. But whether it’s Brian’s pick-up lines, bizarre street fights, or countless gear-shifting, fans wouldn’t change a thing.

Shaw Is A Good Guy Now

Fate of the Furious Deckard Shaw Joins the Team

CharlieBrown777 thinks the fact that Shaw, who was the villain in Furious 7, has become one of the franchise’s biggest heroes is the cringiest part of the series. The Redditor rhetorically asks, “Like how can they have Shaw as a good guy now? Dude killed Han and didn’t even apologize for it and the gang just accepts him?”

The Fast and Furious franchise has a major redemption problem, as so many villainous characters end up getting redeemed, and Deckard Shaw is the biggest example. Not only did Shaw attempt to kill all of the Fast family, but in Furious 7, Han’s death scene in Tokyo Drift was retconned, and it was revealed that Shaw was behind it the whole time. While F9 also revealed that Han survived, nobody actually knew that, and just because he survived doesn’t forgive Shaw for what he did.

Brian’s Dialogue In 2 Fast 2 Furious

Notothat3 doesn’t point out a single one-liner or even a single scene as being cringey, but every single line of Brian O’Connor’s in the 2003 sequel. The user mentions, “Not as bad as people say but Paul Walker’s acting and the dialogue is at all-time cringe here. It’s really great how he went from this to being one of the more compelling actors in the later movies.”

It’s unfair to blame the actor when Walker had such little to work with. There are so many cringey one-liners in the Fast franchise, and most of them can be found in 2 Fast 2 Furious. And whether it’s constantly calling each other “cuh” or Suki yelling “Smack that a**,” it isn’t just Brian who has the cringe lines either.

Johnny Tran Shooting Up Brian’s Car With Uzis

Johnny Tran and his crew confronts Dom and Brian in The Fast and the Furious

Jupue87 points to a scene in the very first movie as the most cringeworthy, and it’s the first time audiences meet the villain of the movie, Johnny Tran. The Redditor refers to when the motorcycle-riding Tran “deadpanned ‘It’s an amazing machine’ before shooting up Paul Walker’s car with uzis.”

It doesn’t exactly make sense why Johnny would shoot up the vehicle, especially as he knew that car wasn’t Dom’s. And what makes the scene even more cringe-worthy is it shows the same shot of the car blowing up from multiple different angles. Though Tran is one of the best Fast & Furious characters with only one appearance, he still has a goofy intro.

The Hack-Off

Ramsey drives a truck as she pursues Otto in F9

Codymiller_Cartoon points to the hack-off between Cipher and Ramsey as the cringiest part of the series. The Redditor comments, “The most cringey part was the ‘hacker’ battle between Cipher and Ramsey with the little quips about how good the other is with the technobabble.”

While it seems like Cipher is Fast & Furious’ very own Thanos, as she’s the villain of both Fate and the Furious and F9, and she’ll likely be the main villain of Fast X, it seems that, just like Shaw, she could be redeemed. Ramsey actor Nathalie Emmanuel has noted that despite the hacking rivalry, she wants to see the two characters join forces and that Cipher is Ramsey’s hero. The actor added, “For years, she knew who Cipher was but didn’t know the identity of Cipher. And now that she’s found out who it is, there’s a part of her that’s going to be really impressed with that.”​​​​​​

Kara’s Altercation With Letty

Ronda Rousey in Furious 7

Kara (Ronda Rousey) is a one-time villain in the Fast and Furious franchise, and it’s the one time a villain has actually been imposing. As Kara is played by a former wrestler, her fight sequences are way more detailed and exciting than any of the others too. But one simple line of dialogue, unfortunately, reminds viewers exactly what kind of movie it is.

DrPogo2488 recalls when Kara tells Letty, “You ain’t that charming, b****” in Furious 7. The Redditor adds, “I still cringe at the delivery of that line.” While it was fun to see Letty go head-to-head with such a commanding villain, this line is exactly why Kara didn’t resonate with Fast & Furious fans.

The Corona Appearances

EndoveProduct is sick of hearing about Corona beer in the Fast & Furious movies. The Redditor notes, “Don’t get me started on that CRINGE-WORTHY beer commercial slapped in the middle of a scene. Were they even trying? They even mentioned the word ‘Corona’ four times.”

While cringe-worthy, it’s actually rather impressive and admirable that the franchise has stuck to the running gag in every release since the very first film when Dom tells Brian, “You can have any beer you want… as long as it’s a Corona.” Interestingly, according to Business Insider, Corona hasn’t given a cent for the movies mentioning the name — but they have handed over a lot of beer.

The BBQ Scenes

Corona in The Fast And The Furious

In the Fast and Furious franchise, there isn’t a Corona beer bottle in the picture without an eventful barbeque, and Meems012 points out just how cringey they always are. But in this case, the Redditor embraces the corniness as opposed to complaining about it.

The Redditor explains, “my fave indulgence are the bbq scenes. To FAMILY… the cheese in these scenes is what’s gonna keep me coming back for 10 and 11.” The barbeque scenes are stuffed with cringiness, whether it’s Jesse thanking God for exhaust systems while saying grace in The Fast and the Furious or Rome and Tej fighting for Ramsey’s attention in Fate of the Furious.

Dom Causing An Earthquake

Dom and Shaw launch in air to fight in Furious 7

While the previous movies were full of farfetched action, Furious 7 took it to a whole other level, whether it was cars shooting from one skyscraper to another in Dubai or cars parachuting from an airplane. However, this deleted user points out what is by far the most farfetched and cringe-worthy too. The Redditor refers to when Dom stomps on the ground of a parking lot, causing it to completely crumble.

It happens following the cringiest line too, as Dom states, “The thing about street fights… the street always wins.” On top of being cringey, it makes absolutely no sense too. Following that statement and then stomping on the ground, it’s as if Dom predicted exactly how the parking lot would cave in on itself and that it’d perfectly split between where he and Shaw are standing.

The Quarter-Mile Race

Dom and Brian race forr the first time in The Fast and the Furious

Osholt calls out the first proper street race in the series as being cringey, pointing out “the 15 gear changes or something stupid.” The scene is certainly over-the-top, the amount of gear changes is ridiculous, and to say it’s a quarter-mile race, it goes on for a couple of minutes, meaning the racers would have driven several miles.

However, it’s still one of the most exciting action sequences in the entire series. There are relatively few digital effects, and for the most part, it’s shot from inside the cars, so it’s extremely impressive that director Rob Cohen managed to get such excitement out of audiences at the time.

Everything In F9

With a long list of set pieces and action sequences, Al_rusev calls absolutely everything in F9 cringe-worthy. The Redditor comments, “Dom hooking the car to the rope and flying away from the helicopters, all the magnet bulls***, the truck at the end being flipped over and somehow maintaining momentum for another 5 minutes.”

The list goes on, and that’s not even mentioning going into space in a rocket-powered Pontiac Fiero. With the latest release in the franchise, director Justin Lin and the cast and crew didn’t even try to ground anything in reality or plausibility, and while previous set pieces defied physics, physics simply don’t exist in F9.

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.

Related 10 Most Exciting Things To Expect From Fast 11 Fast & Furious 11 will pull all the strings to become bigger than the previous installments, and here is why the film is worth being excited about.

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.

Fast & Furious Would Benefit From Hobbs Adopting Some Of The Rock’s WWE Tendancies

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.

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.

Fast & Furious 11
is scheduled to be released in theaters on April 4, 2025.
