Spin-off of The Caker Baker's list.
With the Letterboxd crew having recently added the feature of sorting films by rating,…
A mouthy and feisty taxicab driver has hot tips for a green and inept cop set on solving a string of New York City bank robberies committed by a quartet of female Brazilian bank robbers.
First entry on my 5 Days....5 Remakes list (boxd.it/5hJy )
Hollwood version of the French film, now set in New York and starring...
Latifah is a taxi driver and Fallon an inept cop who team up to try and catch some Brazilian bank robbers played by Bundchen and co while trying to stay on the right side of his boss, played by Jennifer Esposito...with un-hilarious results!!
While it makes a nice change to have so many of the main roles played by women, unfortunately the awful Jimmy Fallon renders it almost unwatchable, its like all the worst bits of Eddie Murphy, Jim Carrey and Will Ferrell have been sliced off and pounded…
I don't know if it was the absurdity of wanting us to believe Queen Latifah could ride a bike like a parkour genius, or the CGI racer taxi, or Jimmy Fallon gurning horrifically...
No I know, it was the moment I realised this was FUCKING SHIT.
FAILED - 20 minutes!
Simplona y estúpida. Con guión reciclado.
Watched between World Cup games. Fairly funny, it raised a few chuckles. Jimmy Fallon was pretty funny and Patton Oswalt mentioning Friendster was funny as balls.
Extremely lame and idiotic, Taxi is a movie that meant an incredible waste of time and probably of talent too. I'm sure that Jimmy Fallon and Queen Latifah could make a funny pair in any better-written film, but this one was so bad that by the end of it I felt like I hated the two of them also.
The saving grace of the film was Queen Latifa's witty retorts and the fab action driving around stunning New York
A completely unnecessary remake.
A really quite terrible film, saved partially by an entertaining final car chase sequence.
Well this certainly is a movie. Good thing Queen Latifah is a wonderful, talented, perfect person or there'd be nothing else onscreen I'd even look at.
Watched this in preparation a compare/contrast column on Jimmy Fallon's past attempt to start a movie career vs. his current attempt to take over The Tonight Show. Needless to say, there's a reason why Fallon never became the next Will Ferrell -- he's hopelessly adrift in a formulaic odd couple buddy comedy that doesn't offer decent laughs or decent action. Queen Latifah at least seems vaguely in control of this runaway vehicle, but not to the point where she's able to keep it from careening into a ditch.
Awful film. Horribly unfunny, bar for a few jokes from Queen Latifah.
Love this sequel to Taxi Driver. 5 star performance by the Queen, and king of comedy.
A list of films that incorporate the Wilhelm Scream. I haven't seen all of these so if you can help…
An on-going collection of the worst films ever made. Even the ones that are so fucking bad, they're not worthy…
