Bad Review Revue: All "2 Fast" Edition

The title and subject matter of 2 Fast 2 Furious lends itself well to scathing reviews:

Chicago Reader: "Without Diesel's brooding lunkhead presence it's more like 1/2 Fast 1/2 Furious." -- J. R. Jones

New York Times: "All of these supremely expressive vehicles come equipped with drivers, principally a pair of crash-test dummies played by Paul Walker and Tyrese, whose low-gear dialogue makes the whine of engines sound like the highest poetry." -- A. O. Scott

Washington Post: "Miami Vice with many more carz and numberz where all the adjectives used 2 go." -- Stephen Hunter

Los Angeles Times: "My hand trembles slightly as I type these words, but the truth is that while watching 2 Fast 2 Furious, the follow-up to the pleasurably cheap-thrills sleeper The Fast and the Furious, I realized just how much I miss Vin Diesel." -- Manohla Dargis

Christian Science Monitor: "2 foolish + 2 flashy = 4 get it!" -- David Sterrit

Austin Chronicle: "As exciting as a Yugo in quicksand." -- Marc Savlov

Update: Slate totally Rick Bragg'd me.
