Fast & Furious: Muscle cars and just plain muscles

4.9.2009

By Noah Michelson

The number one box office movie "Fast & Furious" is an interquel, which according to TV Tropes is a sequel that comes in between previous sequels. It might also mean "we have another video game and need a movie to promote it" or alternatively "Vin Diesel realized jumping ship from a cash-cow franchise was a bad investment."

I know very little about cars, but no fear, the film tells you when to pay attention to them, when to be impressed, and even what car jokes to laugh at, which is good because I could relax and focus on Vin Diesel's muscle -- his car and the ones in his arms. He can appreciate my pastime, apparently, as evidenced by my favorite bit of dialogue:

Hot Chick Who Likes Vin: Are you one of those boys who prefers cars to women?

Vin: I like a nice body, no matter the make.

Bisexuals of the world couldn't agree more. I'm not the only one who notices such non-subtleties, as Andy Samburg and Seth Rogen star in this mock trailer:  "The Fast and the Bi-Curious":

I was pleasantly surprised the the comment section for this video wasn't filled with grossed-out homophobes, but instead numerous people, both men and women, decrying its hotness. We might never get rid of two-straight-girls-making-out-for-straight-men's-pleasure, but I will settle for adding lots of two-straight-men-making-out-for-our-pleasure to all entertainment media.
