10 crazy 'Fast and Furious' momentsBy Bryan ReesmanSpecial to MSN Movies  When the producers of "The Fast and the Furious" delved into the world of illegal street racing for the original film back in 2001, they discovered a cinematic gold mine that continues to generate riches. There's certainly a solid formula to the F&F franchise -- a crazy opening sequence, wild car races and chases, hot babes galore, exotic international locales and cheeky wordplay between the likeable outlaws — that has endeared the franchise to its followers. Finding a way to unite supporting characters from the first four films into "Fast Five" was also a clever idea that undoubtedly helped make it the highest grossing entry in the series. The continuing, revved up adventures of FBI agent-cum-criminal Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) and his partner-in-crime Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel), their ladies, and their crews are perpetually pumping with adrenaline surges. You'll turn your brain off during a lot of the action craziness, yet at the same time the lead actors embody the characters well enough that you care about what ultimately happens to them. "Fast & Furious 6" roars into theaters this Friday, so we decided to take a look back at 10 wild and crazy moments from the high octane franchise.For more movie news, follow MSN Movies on Facebook and Twitter.("Fast & Furious 6"/Universal)
