This week brings “Fast and Furious 6,” in which drivers are very, very, very, very, very, very fast. And furious! We’re glad none of these bad drivers from other movies are behind the wheel in this one.
In 1989’s “Driving Miss Daisy,” an elderly woman (Jessica Tandy) gets a chauffeur after numerous crashes. Because the best way to get new stuff is to wreck your old stuff.
In 1994’s “Speed,” Sandra Bullock ends up behind the wheel of a bomb-laden bus that can’t go under 50 mph. Good thing, since she lost her license for speeding.
“Taxi” is a 2004 film about a driving-impaired cop (Jimmy Fallon) who hires cab driver Queen Latifah to help him chase bank robbers. What’s the surcharge on that?
Buzz Lightyear et al.
Buzz and the boys swipe a Pizza Planet truck to rescue Woody in 1999’s “Toy Story 2.” The truck flies about with Buzz at the wheel, Slinky at the pedals and Hamm … reading the owner’s manual.
Leslie Mann plays a booze-happy driver in 2005’s “The 40-Year-Old Virgin.” She gets a sober Steve Carell to blow into the Breathalyzer-type device on her car’s ignition, then careens around singing “Get Ur Freak On.” It’s a driver’s ed film with a happy ending.
