D.C. Cab is a comedy film that was written and directed by Joel Schumacher. It stars Max Gail, Mr.T, Charlie Barnett, Gary Busey, Adam Baldwin, Bill Maher, Marsha Warfield, Whitman Mayo, Annie DeSalvo, The Barbarian Brothers and Paul Rodriguez. The film follows a young country boy, Albert Hockenberry, relocated to Washington D.C. after his father’s death to work for his dad’s old war buddy, Harold Oswelt. Harold and his wife, Myrna, own and operate the D.C. Cab company. It is the most run-down taxi company in the district, and they are constantly harassed by their competition. The group of cabbies at D.C. Cab is quite an eclectic bunch. Max is henpecked by his wife, and the group of co-workers includes Tyrone Bywater, a soft hearted ghetto escapee who puts on a false bravado and doesn’t hide his love for pop singer, Irene Cara. Cara makes a guest appearance later as a guest in Tyrone’s Cab. Another cab-driving veteran of the company is the muscular and Mohawk-sporting Sampson. He is a crusader against the negative influences and drug dealers in the city and vows to try to persuade the youth to stay away from the bad elements. Max wants to clean up D.C. Cab but doesn’t have the funds to do it. Mr. Rhythm is a homeless man who lives in the alley by the cab company. He finds a rare violin in one of the cabs, and he gives it to Max, who turns it in for a big reward. Max and Albert want to use the money to fix up D.C. Cab, but Myrna takes the money and leaves Max before they can do it. Albert decides that he will invest his inheritance in the company. Things are turned upside down when a couple of children that Tyrone drives to school are kidnapped along with Albert, and the cabbies have to rally together to rescue them.
