NPR has a piece about it called 'Fast & Furious' Owner's Manual: A Guide As The Best Worst Franchise Turns 20 that really nails what's fun about the entire franchise.

If you're looking to break your routine, I recommend this shit.

Just finished FF8 last night and this quote from Wikipedia sums it all up:

"The film received mixed reviews from critics, many of whom praised the performances and action sequences, but deemed the film unnecessary. The film grossed over $1.2 billion worldwide..."

“Uh, what’s ‘necessary’, Mr. Critic, is my yacht - and all them big-tittied womens on it. You can go fondle Citizen Kane and leave me to my millions.” - the director of (and anyone involved in) a F&F flick.

They can’t all be art. Sometimes you gotta drive a lime green car with a four-foot spoiler really fast for no apparent reason.

There’s room for all kinds. For every 12 Years a Slave there’s gotta be a Jo-Jo’s Krazy Kar Wash IV: the Knob Polish Chronicles.
