Storyline

How do siblings deal with each other in their targets? This is the question tackled in this movie. 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 ...

User Reviews

A fabulous, truthful, instant-favourite movie
24 November 1998 | by PFJSee all my reviews

A beautiful woman gets into Ed Burns' cab, and asks him to drive her to New Orleans. What guy wouldn't relate to this fundamental fantasy? This is a guy's movie. It has brilliant observations on the love-hate relationship between brothers, and also on the Irish-American family. "You don't even believe in God," Ed Burns says to his sermonising father. "That doesn't mean I can't be a good Catholic," his father replies. There are countless twists, and countless funny lines. Ed Burns is some kinda genius. A fabulous, truthful, instant-favourite movie.
