Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeDearBoy: Creator/JohnSingleton had seen the first film and was awed by it, saying:
-->When I saw ''Film/TheFastAndTheFurious'', I was like, 'Damn, why didn't I think of that?' Growing up in South Central L.A., we had street races all the time.
* InspirationForTheWork: Creator/JohnSingleton credited ''Film/TopGun'' as a major influence for the film, particularly with regard to the action sequences.

Added DiffLines:

* IronyAsSheIsCast: Before production of the film began, Creator/DevonAoki did not have a driver's license, nor any driving experience.
* NoStuntDouble: When Brian wins the first race, he powerslides toward the crowd. Creator/PaulWalker actually performed this stunt himself, among many other in this film and the prequel, as he was a big fan of street racing and a good driver.
* PropRecycling: The cars Brian races against at the beginning are the same models that won the major races in the first film and they reach the bridge in reverse order of their appearance in the first movie. The stunt crew actually reused some of the stunt cars from the original (they were, of course, modified to resemble the cars in the sequel).
* ThrowItIn: To keep the feel of the movie interesting, Creator/JohnSingleton often encouraged the actors to improvise during filming. Many of the humorous moments on screen are ad-libbed.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Universal had two different scripts commissioned. The first script featured Toretto, while the second script did not, in case he decided not to return.
** The first draft of the script actually had the character of Markham, being in cahoots with Carter Verone the entire time.
