Pretty bad, actually
22 January 2011 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I've seen one other "Taxi Boys" short so far, "Thundering Taxis", and it was pretty good. This one is flat-out awful. I've seen very little of Ben Blue's work, and based on what he's done here, I'm not particularly interested in seeing any more. He's not even remotely funny, mugs outrageously and seems to spend most of his time trying to upstage Billy Gilbert--and failing miserably. I'm a HUGE Billy Gilbert fan, but I'm sorry to say he's not particularly good in this, either, hamming it up almost as much as Blue does. The plot is even more brainless than your average two-reel slapstick short--two dimwitted taxi drivers get mistaken for foreign dignitaries while running from the law--and everything about this entry, from the writing to the direction to the music, is second-rate at best. Very, very disappointing.
