Take a Ride on the Wild Side.
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 know everyone hates this, but i'll fight them

Short Review: This is a pretty short, silly film with no real weight to it. It's best seen for the car chases, which are modestly cool. I can dig the souped-up taxi. As for everything else, a lot of the comedy falls flat (although there are a few charming moments), and the plot involving the bank robbers never feels all that relevant or important. Characters can be charming, and the acting is not bad. Despite the film's weaknesses, it is pretty breezy and fun.
This film opens with Queen Latifah doing some sweet BMX tricks. The only direction from there is down.
We all have a few films that no matter how bad the critics and other reviews, we simply cannot shake ourselves from loving it.
I'm not saying this is some iconic piece of cinema, but what I AM saying is I connect with Jimmy Fallon's character and his coping mechanisms that help him drive better.
everyone legit hates this movie but apparently they don't know how to stop judging a movie and just laugh because Jimmy Fallon + Queen Latifiah = hilarious

A silly movie with some funny moments and not a bad watch. Queen Latifah and Jimmy Fallon actually make a funny duo. Fallon as a cop and Latifah as a cab driver. They band together and go after beautiful, supermodel Gisele Bundchen and her posse, who are bank robbers. The film is super cheesy with many fake and absurd moments. Not a film you'd want to waste money on, but not a bad movie to pick to pass some time.
I can't believe Jimmy Fallon was a cop before he became a talk show host
Love the original french series and (slightly apologetically) enjoyed this one too! Great car chases and New York has never looked so colorful. Cant really defend some of the script and screenplay but still like it anyhoo!
