Seems less like a releasable movie and more like a dress rehearsal for a releasable movie, or the roadshow production of a dress rehearsal for a releasable movie.

[A] thoroughly repetitive, ill-conceived and poorly executed effort.

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.

Listen to Taxi carefully and you can hear Jimmy Fallon's film career stalling.

The film's labored attempts at titillating sexiness is reminiscent of a mediocre Maxim magazine celebrity-skin spread.

So Jimmy Fallon leaves 'Saturday Night Live' and immediately starts making bad movies. And the circle of life continues.

While Queen Latifah is irresistible, this movie is terrible.

Films as lightweight as this usually can be counted on for some smiles, thrills, and good times. Taxi lacks all three.

Taxi can never seem to decide if it's absurd by design or accident.

While Taxi is certainly full of faults that would be hard for most good actors to overcome, Fallon provides the fatal blow himself by being the least interesting part of a pretty paltry movie.

Bottom line: folks, save your cab fare because the frightfully foolish and formulaic Taxi is one extremely banal and bumpy ride.

Cripes, it's bad enough these Saturday Night Live guys recycle the same dumb ideas; now they're starting to look alike.

someone thought Taxi could be funny, and stuffed it full of idiocy instead of hilarity.

There isn't anything especially witty, and Latifah's transforming taxi is just plain stupid.

A dim slog with few laughs. Latifah deserves better.
