77: "She Has Built Herself A Murder Car" - Taxi (2004)

Remember when a young Jimmy Fallon left SNL to conquer Hollywood, only to sink into obscurity for 5 years before he became the second heir to the Jay Leno throne?  This week on Saturday Night Jive we are discussing the 2004 Jimmy Fallon, Queen Latifah vehicle (get it?) 'Taxi'.  This is a remake of a French film produced by Luc Besson, which neither of us have seen but the fact that it has 3 sequels and doesn't involve an unfunny Jimmy Fallon, we can only assume is far better.  The American version was written by Reno 911 creators Tom Lennon and Robert Ben Garant and has lots of sexy shots of Giselle Bundchen, unfunny Jimmy Fallon bits, car stunts, and a big drunk Ann-Margret.  How does a mentally challenged man get hired and keep his job on the NYC police force?  What bizarre hours does the NYC BMV keep?  Why did they design so many buildings to house epic car chases?  How does Queen Latifah keep her incredibly attractive boyfriend?  We also discuss the current SNL cast shake-ups (Goodbye Taran Killam, Jay Pharoah and Jon Rudnitsky) and are sponsored this week by Gary's Getaway Garage.  When you have to modify your car to commit crimes there is no better place in New York City to go.  Enjoy!
