| A cheap rip-off of a classic french comedy
Avoid this film at all costs! This is just a very very cheap remake of the french movie by the same name. Being a big fan of that Taxi, I was intrigued to see what the Yanks had done with it. Watching it was painful, the only reason I watched till the end was to see how low they were going to go with this film.

Queen Latifa's performance is the only redeeming aspect of this film, who does her best with an unoriginal, crass and cheap script. The best scenes are direct rip-offs of the original film and Jimmy Fallon is wasted on a one dimensional ridiculous character.

Go see the original french film and give this one as wide a berth as you can!

Quotes

Washburn: Mi Castro, su Castro.


Goofs

During the exterior driving scenes, the induction plates on the air intake do not move when the engine is accelerated and the car is speeding up. The plates should open up to allow in more air every time the gas pedal is pushed as it is mechanically linked to the pedal.

Outtakes are shown during the closing credits
