Blue-collared Mickey drives a New York taxicab since the breakup with his promiscuous ex-fiancée Heather two years ago. His younger, white-collared brother, Francis, cannot let Mickey forget the tragedy of the "hairy ass": (Mickey's image of his apartment floor of the guy having sex with Heather after walking in on them). Finding relief in driving his cab, Mickey meets an art student named Hope whom he marries after knowing her for only 24 hours. Mickey also meets his old lover Heather, and learns more about life itself as taxi fares in the course of a summer. Francis, a young Wall Street corporate raider, unhappy in his marriage to Renee and led by his infidelity, continues his shots at Mickey throughout the film, only to find himself a plot device that lends humor and lessons about marriage and brotherhood when he meets and starts an dangerous affair with Heather, despite Mickey's ...

This is great!
9 August 1999 | by (Helsingborg, Sweden) – See all my reviews

You have to see this movie. It's one of the best romantic comedies ever; the story is great, the performances are solid,and the dialogue is amongst the wittiest I have ever seen on screen. What more can I say, I've already seen it seven (or something like that) times and each time I get as ecstatic as the first. This is a must-see! I give it 9/10!
