Taxi

Sometimes a film comes along that makes you question just how stupid Hollywood thinks its audience is.  Taxi is one of those films.  Taxi is a stupid film, with a stupid plot populated with stupid characters.  It’s just stupid! 

The “story” follows bike courier come taxi driver Belle (Queen Latifah) on her first day on the job in her super souped up, super customised taxi.  However her dream first day is cut short when moronic detective Washburn (Jimmy Fallon) commandeers her taxi to chase a gang of supermodel back robbers, led by Gisele Bündchen.  Yes, it is as stupid as it sounds, but it is made even stupid because Washburn is a really bad driver and of course ends up causing all sorts of chaos.  The inevitable team-up follows (Belle has had her taxi impounded) to stop these bad, but hot, thieves. 

There is very little entertainment value in Taxi – apart from some glimpses of humour when the friendship between Belle and Washburn sparks - but I wanted to turn it off after 10 minutes; however I persevered, who knows why?  I also don’t know why star Queen Latifah - or Anne Margaret for god sakes! - thought this film was a good idea!?!?! 

Taxi is strictly for fans of souped up cars, super model “actresses” and unfunny lazy humour.  It is loaded with special features including a commentary, behind the scenes featurettes, bloopers and deleted scenes

- if only the whole thing had been deleted.  Catch another ride!
