  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
The laughingstock of his precinct for losing his drivers license, officer Washburn (Fallon) resorts to hailing a Taxi to drive him to the site of a bank robbery. Belle (Latifah), the cabbie soon joins forces with Washburn as they follow the trail of gorgeous bank robbers (including supermodel Bundchen). Based upon the film written by Luc Besson. (Suzanne Hodges)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD picture exhibits sharp and detailed images, with nicely balanced contrast and shadow delineation. The color palette is excellent, with vibrant hues, natural fleshtones, and deep blacks. There is a slight halo of edge enhancement noticed around objects, and pixelization is also quite limited.
