Cabbie of the Year

Australia, 1996 (MIFF 1996, Fiction)

Director: Mick Connolly

The latest from up and coming Melbourne filmmakers Mick and Scottie Connolly Cabbie is a very funny tale about a cabbie down on his luck. Bob is a trouble magnet and a slob with a crush on Kaz the girl in the office. He's too shy to ask her out but things change when Bob is mysteriously selected as a finalist in the Cabbie of the Year competition just when things are starting to look up for the hapless Bob the past returns to haunt him. Chris Haywood as the president of the Taxis Association is in show stoppping form and is ably supported by a strong cast of lesser known comic actors (SQ)
