Movie Info

A nameless Chicago cab driver (Paul Dillon) picks up more than 30 different passengers over the course of a typical December day. Many of his fares are rude, from the evangelical Christians who force their small daughter to try to convert him, to the couple who pretend to have sex in the back seat. The driver tries to maintain his calm even as the passengers drive him crazy. As the day progresses, he tries to intervene, wondering how to help some of the mistreated women he picks up.

Audience Reviews for Chicago Cab

  • Apr 25, 2011
    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.

    I expected something boring or just something to watch but it turned out to be interesting
