Movie Info

The husband-and-wife team of Mary Cybulski and John Tintori (creators of the acclaimed short Manhattan Dinner) directed this Will Kern screenplay which he adapted from his 1992 play Hellcab about a winter's day in the life of a Windy City driver, beginning at 6am in 20 below zero degree weather. Johnny (Paul Dillon) is that rare type of cab driver who will drive anywhere and pick up anyone, and during the 14 hours compressed here into 95 minutes, he ferries about some two-dozen passengers,

The various passengers (played by John Cusack, Julianne Moore and Laurie Metcalf) highlight the funny, scary, and dreary moments that define a typical work day of a Chicago cab driver.

Running on a flat-tyre throughout.....a trip to the dentist would be more exciting

Audience Reviews for Chicago Cab (Hellcab)

Though not the most enthralling premise for a movie - day in the life of a Chicago cab driver, I kind of liked this slight film.
I have to admit, 30 minutes in, I was really not feeling it, and had started to write a so-so review as I watched, but slowly but surely this one grew on me.
The 90's setting and soundtrack fit and the quality of the passengers improve as the movie goes on. John C Reilly particularly is a real douche here and, as I only know him from newer movies, it was strange to see him so much younger. I also found the brief Laurie Metcalf scene amusing and the cougar lawyer as pitiful as it was amusing.
The Gillian Anderson scene is underwhelming and John Cusack strangely menacing. I really don't think I would like this guys job!
As it is set around Christmas time, not a bad movie for that time of year. Worth a look.
