A comedy about a veteran NYPD cop whose rare baseball card is stolen. Since it's his only hope to pay for his daughter's upcoming wedding, he recruits his partner to track down the thief, a memorabilia-obsessed gangster.
Juan Carlos Hernández
The Japanese ambassaor is visiting Marseilles to view the city police's anti-gang tactics. During the visit, however, he is kidnapped by a group working for the Japanese yakuza. Young officer Emilien is determined to rescue the ambassador and officer Petra (his girlfriend), who was also kidnapped, and restore the honor of his department. Once again, speed demon taxi-driver Daniel (from the first Taxi movie) is called upon to save the day with his high-speed driving skills. Written by

Ha-ha-ha-ha, oh yes, Marseille is complicated. Full of small streets. And you'll see that the cells aren't big either.

Though it isn't burdened with a heavy plot or serious acting, it's a great comedy. I don't know how it did in the USA, but here in Taiwan it was a hit. It's fresh and clean, and shows some nice French locations. But it's funny. Certainly, there are things taken from other films, but it really is funny.
This is a film which the whole family can enjoy, as there is very little violence and, as far as I could tell, no foul language. I rented the DVD, and unfortunately, it did not have an English soundtrack, only subtitles, but the translation was excellent, bringing a lot of the play on words into the mix.
I wonder how much those Peugeots go for...
