15 Fast & Furious Memes That Are Too Hilarious For Words

Water is always wet, the sky is blue, and moviegoers can bet that there will always be a Fast and Furious movie on the way. The Hollywood blockbuster franchise is as ubiquitous as Marvel or Star Wars, and its films span nearly two decades of human history now. Given most studios’ penchant for reboots and restarts, that’s really saying something.

Of course, any media franchise as massive as Fast & Furious is bound to have detractors, and the series is often lambasted by critics as vapid and uninteresting. Yet, huge action movies with obvious narrative arcs have been around for decades, and criticizing a film for typifying its genre seems somewhat silly. Equally silly, however, are the hundreds of memes about Fast & Furious that have cropped up over the past decade.

Updated on April 15, 2022 by Tanner Fox: Released on June 25. 2021, the latest installment in the Fast & Furious franchise, simply titled F9 proved that, boisterous as it has become, the franchise isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. The forthcoming tenth mainline installment is currently slated for 2023 and will introduce actress Brie Larson to the series, further confirming that the film series’ final ride won’t be for quite some time. Still, with every entry, the franchise becomes more overblown and convoluted. Originally about a band of small-time car thieves, it’s since developed into an action saga comparable to something like the A-Team. The Fast and Furious memes, at this point, just about make themselves.

Nobody Knows How To Drive Stick Anymore
Fast and Furious gearbox meme.

Gear shifting, no other action movie franchise has made such a mundane driving action more intense. In fact, you can frequently see the protagonists of any Fast and Furious movie rocking the stick shift quickly enough to throw a rod. Of course, they’ve got the technical know-how to revive even the most overworked engine, so they’ve earned the right to treat their vehicles roughly.

By default, most racing cars only have a healthy maximum of eight forward gears. Any more than that, and you’re probably driving a rocket ship to Mars or got swindled by a car dealership into buying a car with bogus gearboxes because you’re bald and like to wear tight shirts.

Family Is Everything, Morty
Fast and Furious Rick and Morty Meme

In the modern Fast and Furious films, Dominic Toretto is something akin to a superhero. Able to survive countless near-death scenarios and pull off incredible feats, he’s like a less timid version of Rick and Morty’s Morty Smith. With that in mind, it’s easy to forget that, when the series first started, he was a relatively small-time car thief who had absolutely nothing to do with international conspiracies.

Today, however, his actions seem to have more bearing on geopolitics than some world leaders, and the government is seemingly able to rope him into whatever mission they’ve got planned with the simple mention of family.

A meme about the many Fast and Furious sequels.

There are only so many different variations of movie names available, even if “fast” and “furious” are the only consistent words in the franchise. Numbers do make things easier, but then people will probably get intimidated by the fact that they made nearly 10 of these movies already. Thankfully, the plots of the Fast & Furious movies are almost always self-contained, meaning that seeing the previous installment is rarely necessary.

Honestly, even listening to the movie’s dialogue is optional; all a viewer would have to do is shut off their brain for a few minutes until the next action or racing scene kicks in, and the movie will still make just as much sense.

When You’re Here, You’re Family
Fast and Furious Olive Garden Meme.

Dominic Toretto’s love of family is one of the most oft-memed aspects of the Fast and Furious franchise. There’s nothing wrong with being close to friends and relatives, but he takes things to a new level, bringing up his love and respect for those around him whenever he gets the chance.

Imagine how elated Dominic would feel were he to walk into an Olive Garden and be greeted with their famous slogan “when you’re here, you’re family.” His infatuation with the restaurant chain would ensure that the next five Fast and Furious installments take place mostly within an Olive Garden.

The Perils Of Going TOO Fast
Driving Causes Hair loss Fast and Furious Meme.

It’s no secret that being bald makes you look tougher, just take a look at Bruce Willis, Walter White from Breaking Bad, or Mr. Clean. Here, fans just chalk it up to male pattern baldness associated with car speeds past 150 mph. The faster you go, the balder you get, and to be honest, everyone looks incredibly tough.

Having a head full of hair makes Brian O’Conner —or anyone, really—stand out like a sore thumb, however.

Every Vin Has Its Diesel
Vin Diesel and Paul Walker in a Fast and Furious meme.

The ever-rising cost of fuel is on the minds of many these days, and it apparently has some Fast and Furious fans taking to some ridiculous extremes. The actor’s last name may be Diesel, but there’s a pretty good chance that he’s not actually made out of diesel.

Interestingly enough, Vin Diesel is just a stage name—he originally went by Mark Sinclair. That’s a much less interesting name, but he may want to consider reverting to it lest Fast and Furious fans come after the precious fuel flowing through his veins.

Just Shave It
Fast and Furious 7 Barber Meme

By far the most sincerely heartfelt scene in the Fast and Furious movies is Brian parting ways with Dom. This served as a tribute and nod to Paul Walker, who had passed away during the filming for Furious 7. Needless to say, it was one of those few rare meaningful film sequences in the franchise, especially for those who’ve been keeping track of the two since The Fast and the Furious (2001).

Needless to say, it’s a sure way to get grown men crying, even those who are bald and like to look tough. It has also launched a thousand memes that are unrelated to the franchise but somehow best explain certain situations. That haircut looks painful, though.

Nothing Is Stronger Than Family
Fast and Furious Family Password Meme.

The phrase “nothing is stronger than family” stands among the most meme-worthy phrases in the Fast and Furious franchise. Dominic Toretto offers variations of this quote multiple times in every installment, and, whenever a script calls for a touching moment, fans can bet that Dom and his love of family will at least be mentioned.

To Dom, the terms “family” and “strength” are just about interchangeable, and, one might easily assume that, for a password to be strong, there’s really only one logical option. As a result, he probably has the least secure online presence of anyone in the world.

Fast & Furious 50: More Faster, More Furiouser
A meme about the fiftieth Fast and Furious meme.

As a big star, Vin Diesel has been in a ton of great movies over the years, and there’s no reason to suggest that he’ll slow down—metaphorically or literally—any time soon. Fast & Furious 50 might be a joke, but, at this rate, it might eventually become a reality. They just have to keep cranking more Fast and Furious films every six months or so.

What’s more likely is that the serious will take a several-year hiatus, and then the crew, now gray and balder than ever, will return for “one last ride” which inevitably spills into an all-new series of sequels. That was essentially the plot of The Expendables, and that’s about to get its fourth installment.

So, What Do You Want For It?
Fast and Furious Pawn Stars Meme

Big-budget action films are often accused of advancing wafer-thin plots in order to focus almost completely on huge action sequences. For some theatergoers, there’s nothing better than a big, dumb action movie, but, with nine mainline installments, the Fast and Furious franchise’s brainless plots are beginning to rub some the wrong way.

Rather than crafting some genuinely engaging plot points or including some honest, heartfelt moments, Fast and Furious movies tend to prattle on about things like family and togetherness. They’ve become about as formulaic as the average Pawn Stars episode.

The Fast & Furious Multiverse
A meme about Fast and Furious taking place in space.

Looks like space is the final frontier after all, though “final” might be an overstatement. After all, if a studio can make more than 10 movies about fast cars, short tempers, and even shorter hairstyles, they’re bound to run out of roads on Earth where asphalt and wheels are viable.

The funniest thing about this is that it might have begun as a meme but it actually came to fruition. F9 legitimately took two characters out into space in one of the weirdest scenes in franchise history.

Less Faster, More Furious
Kermit in a Fast and Furious meme.

It’s no wonder why the Fast and Furious franchise has become such a success. Just take a quick look at the posters; a combination of cars, muscle mass, and guns are a winning formula to rake in a major audience.

It’s too bad the franchise drifted away from the street racing aspect of the first three films and gravitated more towards guns and over-the-top action sequences, along with the frequent dash of global terror conspiracies, secret agents, and incompetent military factions. It doesn’t get wilder than that, and the first three films almost feel like they’re a part of a totally separate franchise.

Nitro Not Included
A meme from the movie Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift.

Automobiles are more disposable than underwear in the Fast and Furious films, and most cars will end up either totaled, crushed, or stolen. That’s probably why they’re not worth much in the films and why they’re being given like pancakes to the current protagonist.

In fact, the only car that a protagonist had to work for was the first film’s 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse, although this was back in the day when Fast and Furious was about racing. In reality, the racing car alone would have made the jobless protagonists broke.

Looks Like A Job For Michael Bay
Fast and Furious And Dinosaurs Meme

Well, the filmmakers did mention the prospect of outer space for the franchise, so why not just jump the shark entirely? Why not add in aliens, time travel, and most crucially, dinosaurs who can outrun a muscle car? On second thought, maybe gas became a bit too expensive in the future and the crew had to saddle up and ride some dinosaurs, instead.

In any case, who could say no to Vin Diesel riding and racing with “Hero T-Rex.” By the way, that “T” stands for testosterone, something Michael Bay will excessively lend to the production if he ever gets a hold of the Fast and Furious franchise.

Buckle Up
Fast and Furious 10 Meme

Calm down and take a seat, they’re not casting Matt Damon, nor Hugh Jackman. Nor are they bringing back Paul Walker’s ghost in Fast & Furious 9; that’s merely a fan-made poster full of wishful thinking. With Fast & Furious 9 already in the rearview mirror, fans just can’t help but wonder what’s in store for the 10th installment.

Since there was a Fast 5, it stands to reason that the tenth installment should be called Fast 10. Just think of all the puns and dad jokes one could come up with such a movie title.

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.

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.
