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

    Too much of Taxi is just tired.

    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. Queen Latifah is a natural-born charmer, but there's only so much she can do when paired with a costar so irritating it's hard not to squirm when he's on the screen, which is most of the time.
  6. 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.
  7. 0
    Very nearly as entertaining as watching a potato bake.

    That's an hour and forty minutes of my life that was just wasted. How depressing.
