D. C. Cab is not an entirely bad movie -- it has its moments -- but if it had used more actual taxi-riding incidents and more recognizable driver types, it could have been a little masterpiece.
D.C. Cab jumps you in the spirit of a big, shaggy and affection-craving pooch. You may wish it weren't quite so sloppily demonstrative, but it's too full of zest and good will to be resisted.
What can you say about a film that has Mr. T in a starring role?
By any rational measure, D.C. Cab is pretty terrible...but for all its faults, it's our movie, because it gets the fact that this town has more sides than just the two on either side of the congressional aisle.
Thus beginning the career of director Joel Schumacher...
"I pity the fool" who doesn't like D.C. Cab. Directed by Joel Schumacher, the film follows a young entrepreneur named Albert Hockenberry who moves to D.C. to join his Uncle Harold's cab company, which is made up of a bunch of misfits who are barely scraping by. Starring Adam Baldwin, Gary Busey, Bill Maher, Paul Rodriguez, and Mr. T, the cast has some impressive comedic talent. However, the writing isn't that good; but this kind of works in the film's favorite as the chaotic nature of the story fits the characters. And the humor is outrageous, delivering plenty of laughs. D.C. Cab is a crazy mess, yet it ends up being a lot of fun in a zany kind of way.
Sure this movie is cheesy and takes a while to get itself together, but in the end, it's a fun and humorous adventure about keeping your job and your sanity. I liked it, but it could be better, obviously.
Fine comedy, rough and raucous story of the metamorphosis of a run-down Washington taxi firm with the advant. Lots of action and some very loud musical numbers.
