Chicago Cab

"OK"

Chicago Cab Review


Nothing inspires more horror in me than the words "Based on the play..." and sure enough, Chicago Cab has that based-on-theatre feel to it. Day-in-the-life-of-a-cab-driver has been done before (never successfully, though), and this star-packed film does nothing to reverse that trend.

Aka Hellcab.
