Forget The Godfather. Forget Jaws. Forget Taxi Driver.
This movie, THIS MOVIE is the best film of the decade. That's right. Mother, Jugs, and Speed: Best Film of the 1970's.
Picture this brilliant concept: DC Cab meets The Death of Mr. Lazarescu, sprinkle in some Larry Hagman as a womanizing crazy man, Raquel Welch as a feminist with big juggs, Bill Cosby with a pottymouth and a heart of gold, an African-American ambulance company, Harvey Keitel, Dick Butkus, and LQ Jones and you begin to get the picture. This movie can not be beat. Completely nuts. Completely nuts! What the hell was going on in the mid 70's?
I'm not sure if my favorite Cos moment in this movie is the drunk driving, the honking at nuns in the intersection to scare the shit out of them, or the getting back massages from vibrator wielding hookers. Oh wait, I guess this is a pretty obvious choice, isn't it?
