Storyline

Edit 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. — Sujit R.

Washburn : Driving lesson? You call that a driving lesson?

Washburn's Mom : Yes!

Washburn : Dad let go of the wheel and said "You better steer or you're gonna kill the whole family".

Washburn's Mom : Yeah! It's good for you.

Washburn : We where going 90, I was six!

Review Top review 3 / 10 Weak remake of 3 classics This is the American version of the French Taxi films and it suffers in comparison.

I m not kidding when I say that this a remake of the three French films since although the film is mainly a poor remake of the the first film, it lifts sequences from the second and third films.

Its a mess, a real mess. I m a huge huge fan of the French films, and for me there was no real point in my seeing this since anything that worked came from the originals.

Why did they bother? They changed the sex of the lead (though the Queen is excellent), combined others and rewrote the cops mother to the point of stupidness. They lost any sense of timing and connection they should have started from the ground up.

Its not the painfully awful film that some reviews made it out to be, but it is a waste of time. If you can find the originals and watch those. That should take you the better part of 5 hours and in the end you will not feel as though you ve wasted your life.
