Ignore the critics who have cut this movie to shreds. Its pure escapist fun that rates four stars. Enjoy!
Wow has Jimmy Fallon aged!!
He's adorable puppy in this film. Looking at him on late night and you have to conclude, damn, that boy has some serious city years on him. One decade, 40 years of living.
Queen Latifah is fabulous as expected. Her man toy is . . . hot. Enough said. The rest of the cast = delightful. QL and JF + Giselle+ make for a cute action flick. Nothing profound, but good to watch once or play in the background as regular rotation. Level of hotness for supporting cast is frankly through the charts.
Watch it. It won't hurt you.
While there were some points in the story that were lacking, the humor and excitement made up for it.
This movie has great car chases and everything else you need to keep excited during a movie about a taxi.
Latifah plays Belle, an adrenalin addicted cab driver who's anxious to begin her career as a NYC cabbie in her souped up Ford Crown Victoria, yet despite her female macho outer shell, she's really a romantic softie at heart. Her character, despite being larger then life (come on... how many overweight black females actually ride as a bike courier in NYC?) is also not the typical paper-thin, one dimensional empty shell that so many comedy roles are. And her role perfectly complements the male lead.
Jimmy Fallon plays police detective Washburn, and he does such a fantastic job of playing a pathetic little dweeb of a cop that more then once I wanted Latifah to pound his skinny little a@@. The comedy kicks in when Washburn, who drives worse then a 90 year old grandma, looses his license and gets a demotion. He manages to hook up with Belle and her crown vic, and together the two unwilling partners must team up to stop a band of bank robbers.
Okay, so there's nothing deep or profound about the movie, but, Latifah and Fallon are talented comedians and together they make for a lot of laughs and a fun ninety minutes.
