Washington, D.C., becomes the District of Comedy in this high-speed hit from writer-director Joel Schumacher (Veronica Guerin, Phone Booth, Bad Company). When young Albert Hockenberry (Adam Baldwin) wants to become a cabbie, he’s got the wackiest teachers around, courtesy of his Uncle Howard (Max Gail) and the freewheeling D.C. Cab Co., including Samson (Mr. T) and Dell (Gary Busey). Along the way, Albert falls in love with beautiful waitress Claudette (Jill Schoelen) and gets caught up in a kidnapping, with Mr. T and the other cabbies riding to the rescue to the tune of Mission: Impossible. From a raid on a topless club and a game of chicken with an oncoming train to a cameo appearance by singer Irene Cara, their hilarious hi-jinks spell comedy with a ‘scapital’s C!
