The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

Revealing mistake: In the disco scene, the DJ is playing music, but the Pioneer decks and the DJ Mixer are not even turned on, as no lights are showing.

Continuity mistake: The inside of the plane to Japan is a Boeing 747, but outside it's a 737. (00:11:40)

Continuity mistake: In the closing credits, Sean's father was listed as "Major Boswell." However, it was established early in the movie that he is in the US Navy and Major is not a rank in the Navy. Its Naval equivalent is the rank of Lieutenant Commander. Even so, in the scene when he was in uniform he had Navy Lieutenant rank on (which is the Naval equivalent to an O-3 Captain in the other branches of the US military).

Trivia: When Sean is learning how to drift at the docks, the fisherman that comments about his drifting is actually the real Drift King, Keiichi Tsuchiya. The comments about betting on the '72 Skyline and '86 Corolla are throwbacks to him as well as the Skyline was his first drift car and the Corolla was one of his favorites.

Trivia: On the movie poster, signs on the buildings say "Wild Speed" and "Wild Speed Drift" in Japanese characters. "Wild Speed" is the Japanese title for "The Fast and the Furious".

Yakuza: There's an old saying - For want of a nail...the horseshoe was lost. For want of a horseshoe, the steed was lost. For want of a steed...the message was not delivered. For want of an undelivered message...the war was lost.

Question: When DK beats up Sean for spending time with Neela, what is the translation of what he says after he says "or the only thing you'll be driving is a wheelchair"?

Chosen answer: I believe he says 'find another driver'.
