Fast paced, lots of action and cheesy lines, but nevertheless it is entertaining. Music was great!

just an excuse for gratuitous violence, promoting criminals as cool guys and random ordinary pop music. I watched because I enjoy the young actor who played Baby.

This movie is not appropriate for teens or young children. After the first 45 minutes, the gun violence and other predatory violence is excessive.

Wildly disappointing. Constant soundtracks of various musical talent trumps good drama. Terrible over-acting. I am not the demographic for the movie. More for the MTV crowd.

The thinnest of plots and the weakest of characters. But as long as the action scenes are choreographed with the music it's all good apparently! Huge downgrade in quality from the director who did Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead.

Action packed, awesome soundtrack and some funny moments.

The ending I could have done without, too much cheese for my liking.

Following our protagonist Baby, a getaway driver for bank robbers and him falling in love with a waitress at a diner. A simple premise but the screenplay was colorful, something most movies nowadays are missing. This movie shows a genuinely kind and thoughtful criminal character. I've been a big fan of Edger's other works but this is my all-time favorite movie after 'Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World'.

I've seen better driving movies. On a scale of 1-10, I give it a 6.

This movie was good until Jamie Foxx showed up and just did to much for me, don't get me wrong I love me some Jamie Foxx, but not in this movie.

IMDb has many choice quotes already but not these two yet as of today:
Your name's baby? B-a-b-y, baby?
-Yeah.
Well, then, you have us all beat. Every damn song is about you. We could drive back and forth across the states forever and never run out of "baby" songs. We might run out of gas, though.
===
It's Debbie. Debora.
-Oh, like the song. The Beck one? Yeah.
Well, except I'm d-e-b-o-r-a, and I think that's just d-e-b-r-a. I don't know that one.
-Oh, it goes, um... Jenny? The song's about him wanting to get with Jenny
and her sister, too, whose name is Debra.
So it's not even really about me. It's about the sister. My sister's name is Mary.
She has got all the songs. "Mary, Mary, where you goin' to?" "Proud Mary keep on burnin'." "The wind cries Mary." She's got me beat. Again. She's got endless songs. I got one.
-No, you got two.
What's the other one?
-Debora, the song I'm talking about.
Who by?
-Trex.
