A blasphemous bludgeoning of the Fast & Furious series and elements of Wacky Races are the clear cash-in antics of the straight-to-DVD field. Tom and Jerry were common bedfellows of the bargain bin back in the day. Tom and Jerry: The Fast and the Furry is one of the many, many quality offerings that pair nostalgia with a shameless mockery of some popular aspect of culture at the time. Slapstick takes a backseat as sight gags and scriptwriting are relied on. A bold move for a series that still relies on two mute protagonists, with the one time they moved away from that rightly considered a bastardised development of everything the series before it got right. Give the animals speech and it may as well be a whole different concept.
