2 Fast 2 Forever #161 – Better Luck Tomorrow (2002)
At long last, we’ve made it to Better Luck Tomorrow: a movie we’ve likely talked about more than any other we haven’t covered. Han, here we are! Before diving into Justin Lin’s breakthrough film, we talk about Vin Diesel’s interview with Entertainment Weekly and break down the first theatrical trailer of The Fast and the Furious in The Fast and the Furious Minute. Then, we welcome in Brian Rodriguez (High School Slumber Party) for the first of a two-part Better Luck Tomorrow crossover extravaganza! We discuss whether or not this is “canonical Han,” whether or not Justin Lin used this movie as a pitch reel to land a Fast and Furious movie, and begin to touch on the high school elements (before we finish that conversation on Friday on High School Slumber Party). We also, apparently, cede total control of this show to Brian, who’s your real host now. (Movie conversation begins around 35:25.)
