With Fast Five still creating buzz in the theaters, there was no way we’d let the moment pass without creating some sort of list. The fifth installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise has grossed over 85 million worldwide, breaking records and is garnering critical acclaim from reviewers. The franchise is popular for delivering intense car sequences involving pimped-out rides and swagerrific wheels either exploding or in high-octane action.
For Fast Five, it's a Best Car Chase list that listmasters will turn to. And FHM.com.ph was gonna do that, too. Except TIME.com beat us to it with an awesome roster they prepared (Damn you TIME!). So we take the detour and make a list of car fail scenes in cinema. Here's hoping you enjoy the comedy of car failures as much as you enjoy the car chase speed.
1. Up in Smoke
There’s no doubt that if you put two stoners in a car, they’re going to light up and hotbox the damn vehicle. And that’s exactly what happens in Cheech and Chong’s Up in Smoke. When the two stoner buds spark a fatty in Cheech’s car, they end up so high that they believe they’re still cruising. When the smoke airs out, our favorite baked-out buddies themselves parked in front of a post.
EPIC FAIL: When they say, “Don’t drink and drive” well, I guess the same rule goes for when you’re smoking the good leaf. Too much of it might just steer you towards an accident or worse towards prison.
