Taxi

Jimmy Fallon plays officer Washburn, a cop who is having a very bad day that he thinks couldn’t possibly get any worse. How wrong can you be? When his efforts to hitch a ride in a car to chase a gang of female bank robbers go spectacularly wrong, Washburn decides to hail down a cab instead. The problem is that behind the wheel of this particular taxi is New York’s fastest cabbie, Belle (Queen Latifah) and her souped-up yellow auto with all its special “extras” looks like something 007 would have been comfortable driving. In the laugh-a-minute chase that ensues, officer Washburn takes his life in his hands.

Directed by Tim Story (Barbershop and the upcoming The Fantastic Four), Taxi is based on the 1998 French film, written by director, Luc Besson.

Okay, I must admit that Jimmy Fallon is a rather entertaining comedian but this US remake of the French movie Taxi leaves a lot to be desired as this bumbling policeman is joined with taxi driver Belle to uncover a Brazillian bank robbery scheme by beautiful women. The gags are slow and fast but if you're having a quiet Sunday night than this movie may lighten it up or those red-blooded heterosexual males can just subtly perve on the beautiful Gisele Bundchen and Jennifer Esposito feel themselves up when one is arrested. Rent before you buy!

The video quality and audio quality is exceptional and is presented in 16:9 enhanced widescreen with Dolby Digital 5.1, it's the movie experiences without being at the movies.  When it comes to extras, this disc has it all from deleted scenes to commentary and a hilarious tour by Jimmy Fallon. Great car chases, hot cars and sexy women!
