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
...pretty much pointless.
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.
