  If co-starring in the flimsy buddy picture/action comedy "Taxi" was the reason Jimmy Fallon left a cushy gig as a cast member on TV's "Saturday Night Live," he might reconsider. And the meter's running, Jimbo. He's partnered with captivating actress/singer/rapper Queen Latifah in "Taxi," and it's a weak echo of her team-up with genius comic actor Steve Martin, "Bringing Down the House," which was a box-office success despite it being a less-than-clever comedown for its two stars. As Latifah's follow-up foil, the insubstantial Fallon — a boyish, likeable performer on the small screen — ain't fit to wear Martin's mock-arrow-through-the-head. This "Taxi" is empty of laughs. Andy Washburn (Fallon) is a calamity-prone New York police detective who has his driver's license revoked by his attractive female lieutenant (Jennifer Esposito) after he instigates one too many costly traffic accidents. Heading home on foot after flubbing a sting operation and being busted down to beat cop, Andy hears a report about a bank robbery in progress. He hails a taxi driven by speed-demon cabbie Belle (Latifah). They make it to the crime scene, just in time to see a getaway by the perps — a quartet of crafty, model-beautiful Brazilian babes. "Taxi" just gets more incoherent and absurd from there. One can only wonder why the classy Ann-Margret agreed to play Andy's alcoholic mom in this slipshod effort.
