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.

The glitch, beyond the rote story, is that while she's an infectiously upbeat screen presence, Latifah is not, inherently, a major laugh generator, and neither, it would appear, is Fallon.

Taxi is one of those madcap comedies where they show all those wacky bloopers during the closing credits to show you how much fun everyone had on the set. Maybe that's because they were in denial.

[Fallon] doesn't so much act as show up, and his utter lack of personality generates a vacuum that the movie cannot overcome.

Throughout this Americanization of the Luc Besson-scripted French hit, Latifah itches to check her watch, Fallon appears mortified, and only Ann-Margret mainlines any comic adrenaline.

Taxi serves up embarrassing evidence that even a ragged French original can be better than its American remake.

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

Director Tim Story's film has two speeds: pedal-to-metal and screeching halt. The former is guaranteed to make the audience carsick, the latter to give it whiplash.

Full of car chases, weak jokes and scenes so meandering they make Saturday Night Live look like a paragon of brevity and wit.

A remake of a 1998 French film of the same name, Tim Story's Taxi is a bland, half-finished film that seems to have been conceived as off-peak cable fodder.

We often hear about movie scenes and characters being left on the cutting-room floor. In the case of the would-be comedy Taxi, that's apparently where all the laughs were left.

An action-choked dud in which even the closing outtakes barely deserve to be left on the cutting-room floor.

A completely inane buddy flick filled with flashy car chases, ridiculous situations, cheap self-help advice, unabashed mugging and a few good laughs.

Taxi isn't quite a bad movie, but its slack comic timing may have you wishing they gave the Crown Vic a speaking part.

Despite some gratuitous, lingering shots of Bundchen with her scantily- clad cohorts and some equally heated, rubber-burning car chases through Manhattan, Taxi never really gets out of second gear.
