D.C. Cab Reviews
While the film is fairly disjointed in its plot, I actually enjoy that fact, as it leads to some crazy and hilarious scenes.
This has also been a fun movie to show people over the years. When I first got the dvd, my friends and I watched it every day for two weeks because different people who hadn't seen it would come over. A few of us watched it every time, and each new person enjoyed it enough that the audience grew the whole time.
This movie is full of good memories for me, but it's also just a fun movie, especially if you're not expecting too much from it.
This movie is complete 80s insanity, which is probably why I like it. Loose plot, extremely goofy characters, jokes that make no sense, yet it has that aura to it that makes it it's own entity. And, Mr. T is in it! Why? Because it was 1983. Look for a young Bill Maher, too, before the weight of the word made him the clay-faced curmudgeon you see before you today.
Along the way Albert falls in love with a beautiful waitress (Jill Schoelen) and gets himself caught up in all manner of mayhem, including a kidnapping. But when the chips are down and the morale is at its lowest it's up to Albert to inspire the motley group of cabbies to work together as a team and get things back into gear.
