Storyline

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 ... Written by Sujit R. Varma

Goofs

When Washburn crashes the first car, he pounds on the steering wheel. This action triggers inflation of the airbag. The sensor for the airbag is in the front bumper, which was undamaged as the car ran backwards into the store. Thus, pounding on the steering wheel would not fire off the airbag. See more »

Quotes

Washburn: [after stopping in the alley during first car chase] Hey! Why'd you stop for?
Belle: [referring to the gun] Hey man watch that thing! It's a dead end, they ain't going nowhere.
Washburn: [loads his gun] Okay! Time to get my burn on!
Belle: You talking to me or your gun? You better not be talking to me. I *know* you ain't talking to me.

See the french Original
9 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

And just to make sure you get it right, i'll repeat myself: Watch the french original! It's so much better, starting from the cast (Queen Latifah is so miscast, it hurts), straight to the story/humor (it's just not right)!

The best scene (to at least have one good comment about the title) is a scene involving Jennifer Esposito and Gisele Bündchen, which had a sort of "tension" to it, that was funny and sexy at the same time! Funnily (or maybe not so funny) enough, with the cast here, you'd be excused to think that it would be more often like that. But it's neither funny nor sexy ... and I'm not talking at the same time, at all! Except the one scene ... but that doesn't save the movie, which just is too long and has nothing going for it! It's a shame, because Jimmy Fallon can be funny, but here he's just annoying!
