Product Description

Racing is in Alex Johnstone's (Mircea Monroe) blood. It was her father s life and it ultimately caused his death so her uncle Bill (Dwier Brown), who runs the local speedway, is determined not to lose his niece the way he lost his brother. But Alex is determined to prove to Bill, to the world, and especially to herself that she has what it takes to be the best in a traditionally male-dominated sport. And when she meets up with handsome professional racecar driver Darryl Sands (Justin Guarini), the emotional stakes are raised even higher. Will Alex crash and burn or can she carry on her dad s legacy and make her dreams come true?

4.0 out of 5 stars A Pleasant Family Movie with Zoom February 5, 2008
By L.A.
Fast Girl centers on the world of professional racing as conducted at local tracks all over America, and features an actual formula one racing team that races the west coast circuit. This angle is what differentiates the movie, because the basic plot line (girl has dream, adult stands in way of dream, girl meets guy who urges her to follow her dream, girl has to beat out rival) is pretty standard issue. The inclusion of the racing scenes is a clever move by the filmmakers, because it makes Fast Girl a romantic drama that boys as well as girls will want to watch.

Mircea Monroe (Drive) does a good job of portraying the rebellious young woman who has "racing in her blood." Dwier Brown (Field of Dreams) convincingly delivers the role of Uncle Bill, the adult who stands in her way. Justin Guarini (American Idol) proves he can act with the throw-away love interest role, although one has to question the filmmakers' decision to hide his natural curls under what is obviously a straight wig.

At times, the staging is a bit awkward, as is some of the dialog. This can largely be attributed to the fact the filmmakers probably shot the entire movie in the length of time that a big studio production takes to film a single scene. Small matter, however, because ultimately, the race cars are the star of this show.

Lacking a big special effects budget, the film uses its resources well. The track scenes have a realism that a glitzy production cannot provide. The director sets up and ultimately captures the split-second decisions Monroe's character has to make in the final racing scene, which determines whether she achieves her dream of becoming a professional race car driver.

The movie contains a couple of brief kissing scenes but otherwise no sex, bad language, or violence. Set your expectations for a pleasant movie that you can watch with your kids and not have to explain anything other than why there are no doors on formula one racecars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Family Film With A Lot of Heart January 28, 2008
By Simon
Fast Girl is a fun and heart-felt family film that also offers the excitement of auto racing. Beautifully shot and directed, and with a surprisingly solid performance by Justin Guarini (first year American Idol runner-up). I'm a car buff and this movie has lots of great racing footage, too. Well written with characters we all felt for, and a good message.

My wife and I enjoyed it just as much as our kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful feel good movie March 3, 2008
I recently watched this movie and was so pleasantly surprised! The acting was great, and the filming (especially the race scenes) was fantastic. Justin Guarini was REALLY good (and quite adorable). Alex's struggle to follow her dreams was very moving, and I found myself teary more than once watching her struggle. There was great suspense, and I really cared about these characters. It was the kind of movie that left me smiling, and wanting more. Great family film!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Family Entertainment February 4, 2008
By Siren
Fast Girl has something for everyone from action to drama to romance to suspense. It is a wholesome movie that all members of the family can enjoy. Mircea Monroe and Justin Guarini have great chemistry as Alex, the "Fast Girl" and her love interest, Darryl. Dwier Brown and Caroline Rhea provide support as Uncle Bill and Maddie. This is an inspiring movie with a solid message. I highly recommend it as a great way to spend an evening with family.
