An inept cop suddenly gets a new partner in the person of a cabbie with attitude in this high-rolling comedy. Washburn (Jimmy Fallon) is a police officer who becomes the laughingstock of the department after a series of traffic accidents cause him to lose his driver's license. One day, Washburn gets an urgent call to head out to the location of a bank robbery; unable to drive himself there, he hails a cab. As it happens, the taxi is being driven by Belle (Queen Latifah), a single mom who, after making a name for herself as the fastest pizza delivery person in New York, has moved up to… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"I expected this to be much funnier: Latifah coasts on her charm, and Fallon seems incapable of playing an actual character."
‑ Hank Sartin, Chicago Reader
"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."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Think twice before hailing this Taxi."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"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."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Buckle up for crap!"
‑ David Cornelius,
"It would take a tankerload of laughing gas to pump some humour into this flat-tyred fiasco."
‑ , Time Out
"[Fallon] doesn't so much act as show up, and his utter lack of personality generates a vacuum that the movie cannot overcome."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"A laid-back, inoffensive time-waster."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"It's got suped up autos, suped up models, and suped up action. Fairly safe to say that it'll appeal to it's target audience, wethinks?"
‑ , Empire Magazine
"As ótimas seqüências de perseguição e as duas ou três boas piadas não são o bastante para equilibrar o fraco roteiro e as péssimas vilãs (especialmente Bündchen, pavorosa)."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"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."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"Goes nowhere fast."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"Take the bus instead."
‑ Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons
"Taxi is one long car chase, which quickly crashes and burns."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"While the film has the look of a cliché buddy movie, Latifah and Fallon bring in their own flair of comedic skills to make a difference."
‑ Wilson Morales,
