From Amazon.co.uk

Bumbling cop Washburn (Jimmy Fallon) is a terrible driver who loses his license and so recruits reluctant Belle (Queen Latifah) and her souped-up mega-cab after he stumbles onto a team of supermodel bank robbers. Several klutzy encounters and high-speed car chases ensue. If this sounds to you like the obvious result of a Hollywood pitch session ("Hey, let's pair some guy from Saturday Night Live with a tough-talking African-American and set them after babes on wheels!"), you're right; it doesn't mean, however, that you won't get in a few decent laughs before director Tim (Barbershop) Story's amiable time-killer falls into a steaming pile of would-be blockbuster buddy film cliches. The ever-ingratiating Latifah has long since proved her star charisma, and Fallon does an amusingly offhand parody of failed machismo. They're clearly having a good time together, and you could do worse than their company. There isn't a frame here that isn't cheaply recycled from some other lame action comedy, but if you grit your teeth for the very bumpy ride, you'll come out without too many scratches.--Steve Wiecking

Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), English ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (2.35:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Biographies, Commentary, Deleted Scenes, Featurette, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Belle Williams is a speed demon. Flying through the streets of New York in her tricked-out taxi, she's earned a rep as New York's fastest cabbie. But driving a hack is only a pit stop for her real dream: Belle wants to be a race car champion. And she's well on her way--until she's derailed by overeager cop Andy Washburn, whose undercover skills are matched only by his total ineptitude behind the wheel. Washburn, whose lack of vehicular skills has landed him in the precinct doghouse, is hot on the heels of a gang of beautiful Brazilian bank robbers, led by Vanessa, their cold, calculating--and leggy--leader. To nab the evasive crooks, drivers license-less Washburn convinces Belle to team up with him to pursue Vanessa and crew. Belle has carte blanche to drive at any speed and break any law. The car-less cop and speed-demon cabbie--New York's unlikeliest partners-- begin a high-speed game of cat and mouse with the robbers. That is, if Belle and Washburn don't end up killing each other first. ...Taxi (2004) ( New York Taxi )

1.0 out of 5 stars Only 15% of the original 1 Sep 2005
Format:DVD
I was dubious when I realised Latifah was the main character. On one hand she was OK in "Bone Collector" but on the other hand Hollywood is currently fond of the "Loud mounthed Black Girl" stereotype. In fairness she never goes far enough down that road to be irritating.
If you can't handle movies with subtitles this is a good case for taking special reading classes so you can view the originals. The french movies are quite simply far more funnier, stylish and entertaining. While it is good Hollywood didn't try to make a english language carbon-copy most of the differences aren't that good and the missing bits are very much needed. They keep the same ending to the final chase which is a little boring to those of use who've seen the original. The bicycle opening sequence is different, but not so charming as the scooter race as you see people diving out of the way of the bike. One of the most charming characters of the original was Camile, the cop's mother. Here she is a one-dimensional drunk and it is a pity to see Ann Margret ending up in such a role.
On of the few good original parts is the model searching the female captain but most of what is orginal is not good, and visa versa.

I have a recent LG 3D Blu-Ray player with an up-to-date software installation, but I have had two copies of this disc, and neither of them would play at all, play starts but the counter just stays on zero. Perhaps this is the copy protection the disc claims to have? Maybe this is why they are two for £10?

By all means buy this movie, I am sure it is great, but be prepared to be disappointed if it won't play...
