and then try to guess what the movies are about. we like to call it "fast forward and the furious." yesterday, he watched "the fast and the furious: tokyo drift," and today is day four. so there's arthur earlier today, watching the fourth "fast and the furious," at four times its original speed, trying as hard as he can to figure out what it's about. well, that was earlier today. he has since finished the movie, and he's now going to tell us what he thinks it's about. let's bring him out. arthur meyer, everybody. ♪ [ applause ] >> jimmy: arthur, thank you for doing this. >> thank you. >> jimmy: now, you've never seen this movie before, have you? >> never seen this movie before. >> jimmy: and what is this one called, now? >> this is just called "fast and furious," so they got rid of the word the. >> jimmy: yeah, no "the fast and the furious." >> yeah, just "fast and furious." >> jimmy: is it a shorter film than the other ones? >> it's the exact same length. 26 minutes.

is about? >> okay, well, first -- >> jimmy: took a lot of notes there. >> yes. now, first, i just want to say that the bighing in this movie is that vin diesel is back. [ cheers ] yeah. >> jimmy: he's back in this one. >> he's back in this one. he was in the first movie. he wasn't in the second. he was in the third for about four seconds. [ laughter ] so i guess that's, like, 16 seconds. but now he's back, and he still loves driving cars. >> jimmy: ah, isn't that great? good to hear. >> so here's what the movie is about. "fast and furious" is about vin diesel getting mad at different men. [ laughter ] some of whom are bald like him. [ laughter ] others not. he drives cars at fast speeds a lot. and even though i couldn't reallyell what the movie was about, it was just great to see vin diesel driving around and having fun. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: oh, my gosh. that's great. to see good old vin -- now, which one was your favorite so far? >> well, even though there is something that's truly great about seeing vin diesel drive cars, my favorite is still "2 fast 2 furious" because the cars were more colorful. >> jimmy: that's right.
you said, yeah, now -- that was very good. i appreciate that, arthur. well, thank you. we will see you back here tomorrow to talk about the fifth movie. it's called "fast five." >> oh, my god. >> jimmy: you're excited about this? >> i'm so fast and curious.
