Overview

An inept cop suddenly gets a new partner in the person of a cabbie with attitude in this high-rolling comedy. Washburn Jimmy Fallon is a police officer who becomes the laughingstock of the department after a series of traffic accidents cause him to lose his driver's license. One day, Washburn gets an urgent call to head out to the location of a bank robbery; unable to drive himself there, he hails a cab. As it happens, the taxi is being driven by Belle Queen Latifah, a single mom who, after making a name for herself as the fastest pizza delivery person in New York, has moved up to driving a hack. What begins as a wild ride to the scene of the crime gets even wilder as Washburn and Belle become unexpected allies while following the trail of a team of beautiful but reckless female bank robbers led by Vanessa Gisele Bundchen. Adapted from a popular French action comedy with the same name, Taxi was Jimmy Fallon's first big-screen vehicle after leaving the cast of the popular sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live.

    Jimmy Fallon + (insert name here) = FLOP

    I tried to sit through this putrid mess of a movie. Jimmy Fallon is by far the worst actor to ever come from the hallowed ranks of SNL alumni (although Will Farrell is a close second). His over-the-top antics and constant mugging do nothing to hide his lack of acting talent. Queen Latifah was good in her role, but she deserves better than this. Maybe it got better after the first 20 minutes, but I wouldn't know. I didn't make it that far before turning it off.

    This movie is really cool!

    I really enjoyed this movie- from the biracial parts to the hilarious conversations between Latifah and Jimmy. They complimented each others' comedy so well. It's just a really cool movie
