    Star Wars is small potatoes next to the Fast & Furious.

    I wont say Fast and the Furious is a bigger potato than Star Wars just because Star Wars has been around a lot longer than F&F and has entertained and had a bigger impact on more generations but F&f is definitely in the rear view mirror.
