The car chases are good but it's so tedious to watch. Didn't enjoy it at all.

I'd rather watch " Bullitt " with Steve McQueen- that movie had amazing car chases AND a comprehensible plot and characters in it.

BABY DRIVER is like watching a live action version of a Warner Bros. cartoon. It is a monstrosity, an absurdity. John Hamm and Jamie Foxx must have been in need of a big payday because their efforts here are embarrassing. Much is made of the opening car-chase sequence set to Jon Spencer Blues Explosions' "Bellbottoms." It's a decent scene. But everything is derivative here. It's hard to sit through two hours of cliches. I felt manipulated the entire time.

Yes, the third act has some startling moments, but it's a fun ride. And the car-related stunts are much more believable than those in a longinthetooth movie franchise are (not naming any names).

Action and music. The integration of the story with the music is awesome. I really enjoyed this movie but not for the faint of heart.

Pretty lame action flic from Edgar Wright- he should stick to making movies with Simon Pegg. The movie is all flash and no substance- kind of like if you ate cotton candy for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Oh Baby Baby it's a Wild World....Well, this is NOT on the soundtrack but rather a propos, a Reservoir Dogs lite? This Baby is groovy with a good heart; check out the warm scenes in sign language with his foster father. Quotable: " It may seem tough now, but once they are gone, you'll miss having someone to care for". Foxx/Hamm/Spacey great fun to watch as Baby's boss/cohorts/tormentors.

it drags somewhat after the car chase beginning. Still, very entertaining and, of course, great soundtrack. Fans of Kevin Spacey: this may be the last time you see him, so enjoy.

If you want to see which songs played during the movie , there is a list of all the songs that played that appears on 3 or 4 pages of listings that appear in the extras at the end of the movie.

My advice is always to check out movies before viewing them as this might negate the numerous negative comments regards shallow movies such as Baby Driver. For this guy, Baby Driver was a lot of fun with great car chase scenes, a first rate sound track (what was that Queen number again?), and suitably evil bad guys. "I was in love once" laments crime boss Kevin Spacey. Alas.
Oh yes - Brighton Rock!

IMDb has many choice quotes already but not these two yet as of today:
Your name's baby? B-a-b-y, baby?
-Yeah.
Well, then, you have us all beat. Every damn song is about you. We could drive back and forth across the states forever and never run out of "baby" songs. We might run out of gas, though.
===
It's Debbie. Debora.
-Oh, like the song. The Beck one? Yeah.
Well, except I'm d-e-b-o-r-a, and I think that's just d-e-b-r-a. I don't know that one.
-Oh, it goes, um... Jenny? The song's about him wanting to get with Jenny
and her sister, too, whose name is Debra.
So it's not even really about me. It's about the sister. My sister's name is Mary.
She has got all the songs. "Mary, Mary, where you goin' to?" "Proud Mary keep on burnin'." "The wind cries Mary." She's got me beat. Again. She's got endless songs. I got one.
-No, you got two.
What's the other one?
-Debora, the song I'm talking about.
Who by?
-Trex.
