Lazlo’s Clicker: Taxi Brooklyn, Dominion, Young & Hungry and Mystery Girls

If CBS’ Bad Teacher proved the axiom that bad movies make even worse TV shows, then NBC’s Taxi Brooklyn perhaps proves the exception:  bad movies can in fact make, if not good, at least watchable TV shows.

Taxi Brooklyn is based on Luc Besson’s film Taxi, which starred Jimmy Fallon as a somewhat bumbling New York City cop who teams up with a street wise cab driver played by Queen Latifah.  The film was squarely an action comedy in the style of 48 Hours although sadly lacking that picture’s quality or laugh quotient.
