The good films are action or comedy films, but the best films are action and com-ed films mixed together. That's why I've chosen the film Taxi 2.

I've looked very much forward to see that film, because Taxi was very go...

Each summer, audiences can expect to see car chases, gunfights and explosions, and studios can expect to see millions and millions of dollars in return.
