In 2001, a movie about cocky street racers made $200 million and became the hottest summer blockbuster that year. The Fast and the Furious combined everything you might find in a beer commercial: hot cars, hot weather, hot chicks, and dudes. It was all packaged neatly within a movie that should’ve been seen — and forgotten…The Fast and the Furious wasn’t forgotten, however. Thanks chiefly to the golden-boy looks of star Paul Walker and the rage-fueled bulk of rising star Vin Diesel, the movie became a beloved hit. Fans didn’t mind the plot holes and extreme swagger — they embraced it. Marlon Brando and Jack Nicholson used to star in movies like this in the ’50s and ’60s. Biker films like The Wild One and Hell’s Angels On Wheels brought rebels to the big screen. But The Fast and the Furious was bigger than those old biker flicks. And it had heart and true chemistry. The cast was perfect and the formula has spawned many sequels, spin-offs, and billions more in revenue over the past two decades. This month marks the film’s 20th anniversary. So what better time than now to look back and dig into what you never knew about The Fast and the Furious.
