Gladys and I went to see “Taxi” today, starring Jimmy Fallon and Queen Latifah. Now, bear in mind that I love Jimmy Fallon – he was my favorite on Saturday Night Live for a long time. And I just adore Queen Latifah – she’s beautiful for one thing, and extremely funny. So put those two together in a movie and I’m there.
Can I just say I was happily surprised that I found “Taxi” to be pretty good? Now, it’s not exceptional comedy, but it IS basic comedy and considering it had a lot of incredibly bad plotholes I still liked it and plan on getting the DVD when it’s released. Gladys and I laughed through the whole thing.
In particular, I just think those two had great chemistry together and I hope they make another movie together. The nitrous oxide scene alone had tears of laughter streaming down my face. I can’t wait to buy the DVD and see the outtakes and deleted scenes that have to be laying on a cutting room floor somewhere.
