Think twice before hailing this Taxi.

A laid-back, inoffensive time-waster.

I expected this to be much funnier: Latifah coasts on her charm, and Fallon seems incapable of playing an actual character.

It would take a tankerload of laughing gas to pump some humour into this flat-tyred fiasco.

While Taxi is certainly full of faults that would be hard for most good actors to overcome, Fallon provides the fatal blow himself by being the least interesting part of a pretty paltry movie.

It's got suped up autos, suped up models, and suped up action. Fairly safe to say that it'll appeal to it's target audience, wethinks?

Taxi is one long car chase, which quickly crashes and burns.

As ótimas seqüências de perseguição e as duas ou três boas piadas não são o bastante para equilibrar o fraco roteiro e as péssimas vilãs (especialmente Bündchen, pavorosa).
| Original Score: 2/5

While the film has the look of a cliché buddy movie, Latifah and Fallon bring in their own flair of comedic skills to make a difference.

Dismal comedy that's only watchable thanks to Queen Latifah's star power.

This is a cynical, tired example of filmmaking. Plenty of noise. Little va-va-voom.

Latifah, known for going after roles meant for men just because men have the much juicier characters written for them, is both ballsy and sensuous here.

A dim slog with few laughs. Latifah deserves better.

It's hard to decide which character is required to act more stupidly.

The film offers some laughs - but not big ones.

So, as with many a hit French film, this was remade in English with an all-American cast. Also, as with most of these remakes, this one sucks big time...

... the goings-on are neither very exciting nor terribly funny.

Somewhere along the way [Story] apparently forgot he was making a comedy. But, then again, the script doesn't exactly provide an arsenal of creativity.
