A laid-back, inoffensive time-waster.

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.

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.

Latifah and Fallon are an unlikely comedy team but they keep the laugh meter running

Taxi stalls when it pretends to have an interesting story to tell but flies when it simply lets stars Queen Latifah and Jimmy Fallon loose.

A surprisingly funny, female-driven romp -- as long as you don't question too many plot particulars.

A formula picture, with enough laughs to get by.

Giselle Bundchen is called upon to lean over in low-cut shirts and have long legs, both of which she does well. She is also called upon to act, which she does not do well.

An example of the sort of fun you can have when you're not taking yourself -- or the job -- too seriously.

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?
