    "TAXI" is on SBS

    "TAXI" is on SBS tomorrow night, 19th Oct, at 9:30pm. For anyone who doesn't know about the "TAXI" films here's the SBS description.
    MOVIE - COMEDY - TAXI
    Street-wise Daniel is a former pizza delivery man who drives a souped-up Peugeot taxi. Rather than lose his driver's licence for a speeding offence, Daniel makes a deal with the arresting officer, Emilien, a clumsy but well-meaning cop. Emilien, who does not drive, agrees not to prosecute Daniel if he consents to serve as his personal chauffeur. The two unlikely allies spend most of their time chasing down a bunch of German bank robbers known as the Mercedes Gang at high speed through the streets of Marseille. Directed by Gérard Pirès and starring Samy Naceri, Frédéric Diefenthal and Marion Cotillard. (In French, English subtitles). (1998) M (S,L,D) WS

    Don't forget to set the VCR (DVD-R, HDD-R or what ever you have).

    It was great!! I must get the DVD. Whereabouts in Melbourne can you pick one up, and how much do they cost?

    I'm guessing it'd only be available in the more specialist DVD/video shops that are dotted about..

    Awesome flick, had a real good laugh, taped it last night and ummm watched it again this morning, the engine noises are fantastic. Imagine a 406 done like that appearing at Auto Salon, that would get a few bemused looks. Just need to get a multi-zone DVD player and I will be getting 1 & 2 on DVD.

    I watched and taped it .... does anyone else have digital TV .. cause on SBS last night (all the way from the new Napoleon series and through-out TAXI) the test pattern for SBS would pop-up for 1/2 a second and disappear. This happened at least 5-6 times last night, strange.

    You can actually see the Taxi car in the Peugeot museum in Sochaux (or however you spell it).

    I have Taxi & Taxi 2 on DVD, as i said in the previous topic, i'm wanting to see number 3, it was released in europe on the big screen in january, but haven't seen it on dvd as yet...

    *Taps foot in anticipation*

    If you go to google, you can find after looking throught the results small write ups about it and you can also find the movie posters as well...
