10 Funniest Scenes In The Fast & Furious Franchise, Ranked

This list contains some foul language.


The first few
Fast & Furious
movies establish key character dynamics with funny moments.
Fast Saga’s
over-the-top action scenes lead to humorous reactions from the cast.
The franchise balances humor with implausible action, creating enjoyable entertainment.

As the stunts get more ridiculous and the supporting cast expands, the Fast & Furious franchise gets more funny scenes from the impossibility of the action and a wider variety of character dynamics. However, some of the Fast Saga’s funniest scenes are from the first few movies, when relationships that will be important throughout the franchise are established. Dom (Vin Diesel) and Brian (Paul Walker) have a friendly but competitive relationship from the beginning that creates many funny moments.

Likewise, Brian’s friendship with Roman (Tyrese Gibson) has a comedic streak, as well as Roman’s interactions with Tej (Ludacris) in the later movies. On the other hand, some of the car stunts and exchanges during the action sequences are so ridiculous that there is no option left but to laugh out loud. What the Fast Saga lacks in realism it makes up for in enjoyable entertainment, and the characters’ amusing reactions to the dangerous situations they find themselves in are a huge part of this.

10 Roman & Han Loose The Subway Fight
Fast & Furious 6

While they are chasing after Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Roman and Han (Sung Kang) get into a fight with Jah (Joe Taslim), another member of Owen Shaw’s (Luke Evans) team, who overpowers them both. It seems like just another hand-to-hand combat scene characteristic of the franchise. However, midway through the fight, it is clear that Roman and Han are both getting tired.

In an easy-to-miss moment, they are both lightly pushing each other forward to take another shot at the guy. When their opponent finally runs off, Roman tells Han: “No one needs to know about this. No one.” Han breathlessly nods. It is not the cleverest or most outrageous bit of humor in the franchise, but it is a good way to break up the monotony of action scenes that are all very similar. This is especially true when most of Dom’s family seem to be experts who never lose a fistfight.

9 Hobbs & Shaw Trash Talk
Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

Johnson and Statham’s acting is what makes the comments in this scene work, as they are both completely deadpan, no matter how immature they sound.

The entire premise of Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is based around Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Shaw (Jason Statham) being forced to work together, resulting in more than two hours of insulting banter. It becomes stale after a while, which is why one of their best scenes is when they are initially paired up. Hobbs and Shaw have some moments of mocking each other in The Fate of the Furious, but in the first “trash-talking” scene of their spinoff, they indulge in a barrage of completely over-the-top insults.

Johnson and Statham’s acting is what makes the comments in this scene work, as they are both completely deadpan, no matter how immature they sound. Their dynamic is also likely why the Fast & Furious producers realized a spinoff about these two characters would work in the first place. Even though most of their conversations are completely juvenile, Hobbs and Shaw’s relationship creates many funny, fan-favorite moments.

8 Brian & Roman Argue About Monica
2 Fast 2 Furious

Later in the franchise, most of Roman’s jokes and quippy interactions are with Tej, while Brian’s screen time is taken up by his relationships with Mia (Jordana Brewster) and Dom. However, in 2 Fast 2 Furious, Roman’s first movie in the franchise and Brian’s only one without the Toretto family, Brian and Roman’s dynamic is one of the most important parts of the plot. As friends who have known each other since high school, they constantly make fun of one another for the audience’s amusement.

In 2 Fast 2 Furious, the pair work with Monica (Eva Mendes), an undercover U.S. Customs Service agent, to arrest a drug lord. Brian and Roman have a funny back-and-forth arguing over whether Brian was “checking her [Monica] out,” with a cut that suggests the argument has gone on for a while before Brian admits to it and tells Roman to shut up. The joke would have aged better if Monica had a larger role in the franchise, but it at least defines Brian and Roman’s relationship.

7 Roman & Tej Get The Same Car
Fast Five

Roman and Tej both return after 2 Fast 2 Furious when Dom, Brian, and Mia recruit them for a high-stakes heist in Fast Five. This is when Roman’s interactions with Brian are largely replaced by those with Tej. At one point in the movie, when the team is discussing what they will do with their share of the money, Tej says he wants to open his own garage. Roman scoffs at this, as he plans to go on a spending spree.

In Fast Five’s ending, Roman comes to Tej’s garage to brag about his new car, claiming that “there are only four of those cars in the whole world,” and he owns the “only one in the Western Hemisphere.” However, Tej rips the rug out from under Roman when a pair of women drive up in the same car, which belongs to Tej. In the first Fast & Furious movie where there is a big focus on Roman and Tej’s friendship, this is an entertaining way to demonstrate the lengths they will go to in order to one up each other.

6 Roman’s Orange Lamborghini
The Fate Of The Furious

A huge joke among the whole cast in The Fate of the Furious is over Roman’s love for a bright orange Lamborghini. Roman spots the car in the FBI’s garage and argues that he could use it for the mission because of “reverse psychology. Dom will never see it coming.” Little Nobody (Scott Eastwood) hilariously snaps back: “It’s neon orange. The International Space Station will see it coming.” However, Roman gets his wish later when Little Nobody says they can take whatever car they want for the final chase.

The reason the joke is great is that it gets even more mileage during this final chase, where Letty makes fun of Roman when the car spins out of control on the ice. When Roman demands to know why everyone is shooting at him, Tej blames the car as well. This is before the Lamborghini is lost to the icy waters, bringing one of Roman’s best recurring jokes to a tragic end.

5 Brian “Almost Had” Dom
The Fast And The Furious

Brian and Dom’s friendly rivalry is established the first time they race. Brian loses (of course), but their exchange afterward is less expected and amusing. Despite losing, Brian is hilariously grinning ear to ear, confusing everyone around him. When Dom asks why he is smiling, Brian proudly responds: “I almost had you.” Everyone there either laughs or cheers. It is a small moment of trope subversion because people would expect Brian to be frustrated after losing.

However, it also establishes a long-running joke in the series of Brian’s determination to beat Dom in a race. It leads to another funny moment in Fast Five where a casual bet leads to an impromptu race, in which Dom lets Brian win, so the extra money will go to Brian and Mia’s unborn child. Brian is once again thrilled until the others inform him that it isn’t real. Therefore, this comedic moment in the first movie helps establish one of the franchise’s best recurring gags and best relationships.

4 Roman Isn’t In Interpol’s Top 10 Most Wanted
The Fate Of The Furious

Another humorous moment surrounding Roman in Fate of the Furious is his disappointment at not making Interpol’s list of the top 10 most wanted people in the world. Mr. Nobody (Kurt Russell) informs the main crew that they have all made the top 10 list, except for Roman, who came in at number 11. Roman is infuriated by this when Letty, Hobbs, Tej, and Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel) all rank above him.

Roman’s general anger about the situation is funny, but the beat comes back at the perfect moment during the final fight. After taking down the people shooting at him, Roman pauses for a second, before saying: “Number 11 my a**.” It is a good bit of internally referential humor that is not overplayed because Roman is the only person who hears himself say this. It is also a good way to bring comedy to the increasing stakes of the Fast Saga, where the main cast are international criminals who are always wanted for something or other.

3 “Cars Don’t Fly”
Furious 7

Dom jumping between skyscrapers is hands down, one of the most ridiculous scenes in the Fast Saga. It is also the moment that best captures how out of control the series has become, rivaled only by Roman and Tej going into space. However, the comedy of the skyscraper car jump moment combines with the impossible stunt for a laugh-out-loud effect — whether it is because of the dialogue or how ludicrous the whole thing is.

Brian is (mostly) used to Dom’s stunts by now, but he is still screaming that “cars don’t fly” at Dom right before they take off. The writers set this comment up earlier in the movie when Brian says the same thing to his son, after the toddler throws a toy car. It’s even funnier in the context of Brian’s boat jump in 2 Fast 2 Furious, which freaked out Roman at the time.

2 Shaw Takes Care Of The Baby (While Fighting)
The Fate Of The Furious

Dom’s family forgives Deckard Shaw remarkably fast, making him a new family member in record time in Fate of the Furious. If anything cements this newfound trust, it is Dekcard and his brother teaming up to save Dom’s infant son from Cipher (Charlize Theron) at the end of the movie. Oddly, Shaw saving the baby from the plane is also one of the funniest scenes in the Fast Saga.

While fighting his way through Cipher’s men, Shaw occasionally takes breaks to check on the baby, who is happily listening to music, thanks to Shaw positioning headphones on him before starting. The cute comments and the baby’s perfect reactions contrasting with the action are hilarious. This scene proves that humor is the best way to redeem a Fast & Furious villain — there are likely going to be some funny and awkward interactions every time they ally with a former enemy anyway.

A custom image of Tej, Han, and Roman from Fast and Furious Related 10 Best Fast & Furious Characters That Didn’t Appear In The First Movie The Fast and the Furious may have kicked off the Fast Saga, but some of the franchise’s best characters were only introduced later down the road.

1 Hobbs Breaks His Cast & Arrives At The Fight
Furious 7

As ridiculous as it is (probably the most ridiculous scene of the franchise that doesn’t involve a car), Hobbs is completely straight-faced when he breaks his own arm cast.

The Rock always brings over-the-top energy to the Fast Saga as Hobbs, resulting in some scenes where his muscleman persona is so outrageous it becomes comedic, due to his ability to seamlessly blend action and humor. As ridiculous as it is (probably the most ridiculous scene of the franchise that doesn’t involve a car), Hobbs is completely straight-faced when he breaks his own arm cast. He is just as sincere when he tells Letty: “I am the cavalry.”

As the action becomes more implausible in the Fast & Furious franchise, the only way to keep the tone balanced is for the characters to be cavalier about their circumstances and constantly make jokes about them. Johnson is one of the best actors to do this, which is why Hobbs’ return in Fast X is a good thing. He and the rest of the cast will doubtlessly continue to play hilarious moments in Fast 11 and beyond.

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
Telly Savalas talking on the phone in Kojak

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.

The Rock’s WWE Run Proves Fast & Furious 11 Needs To Give Hobbs More Of An Edge
Fast & Furious Would Benefit From Hobbs Adopting Some Of The Rock’s WWE Tendancies
Dwayne The Rock Johnson in Black Adam, WWE, and Hobbs and Shaw

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.
