    A surprisingly funny, female-driven romp — as long as you don't question too many plot particulars.

    Too much of Taxi is just tired.
  3. Frivolous but fun, somewhere between a comic "French Connection" and the craziest Nascar race you never saw.
  4. 30
    The glitch, beyond the rote story, is that while she's an infectiously upbeat screen presence, Latifah is not, inherently, a major laugh generator, and neither, it would appear, is Fallon.
  5. It would take the ghost of Stanley Kubrick to get great performances out of Jimmy Fallon, Queen Latifah, and supermodel Gisele Bündchen, and Tim, you're no Stanley.
  6. 0
    Very nearly as entertaining as watching a potato bake.

    Although the remake wasn't that good, but Taxi got some smooth laughs and very entertaining. Give props to both Queen Latifah and Jimmy Fallon. Sometimes the critics almost got it wrong, but I digress. Expand
