    eh... I'm bored and it's still better than the honeymoon jokes. Well imo anyway. Besides I would love a job on a movie set watching for mistakes like these during the production process.

    Most movies are shot with scenes in reverse chronological order. So the wardrobe, haircuts, body damages need to be kept consistent within the timeframes.

    Being an Antiques professional, you can easily get an on-set job as a researcher for a movie company.

    There is a CT based movie company, Soundview Productions. They have made a few movies, most popular is www.treesthemovie.com. I have worked with them to create accurate and historically significant electronics props, from the 50's and 60's.

    Don't look for pay.

    They left out one thing from the movie that I noticed about this quote. If he blew out the floor panel, how can Vin get in the car from the passenger side and sit with his feet not dragging on the ground.

    Actually no... both those movies were very decent money makers:

    Box Office History for Fast and the Furious Movies

    Basically the two movies cost $114,000,000 to make... the total US Gross was $271,632,368, with a Worldwide Gross of $422,800,000. That's about $300 million dollars in profits... So no... making those movies was not a mistake. :p

    It wasn't a mistake, I know you guys still liked it, even though it had all those mistakes, you can't tell me that it didn't get you pumped up for a race.

    That person is called a QCer (Quality Control). I was offered that job where I work but I did not want to sit in a room staring at a screen for 8-12 hours a day.
