Washington, D.C., becomes the District of Comedy in this high-speed hit from writer-director Joel Schumacher (Veronica Guerin, Phone Booth, Bad Company). When young Albert Hockenberry (Adam Baldwin) wants to become a cabbie, he's got the wackiest teachers around, courtesy of his Uncle Howard (Max Gail) and the freewheeling D.C. Cab Co., including Samson (Mr. T) and Dell (Gary Busey). Along the way, Albert falls in love with beautiful waitress Claudette (Jill Schoelen) and gets caught up in a kidnapping, with Mr. T and the other cabbies riding to the rescue to the tune of Mission: Impossible. From a raid on a topless club and a game of chicken with an oncoming train to a cameo appearance by singer Irene Cara, their hilarious hi-jinks spell comedy with a "capital" C!

Dorothee Schumacher RTW Spring 2016

There was a personal letter from Dorothee Schumacher addressed to each attendee waiting on his or her seat at the designer’s two back-to-back shows at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin’s new, more intimate Stage venue. It was a welcome note, but also almost a manifesto, encouraging guests to try to be grounded and find the path to beauty — and hence paradise.

If that sounds a tad heavy, the clothes Schumacher sent forth from her stage-set garden were anything but. Abstract and tropical flowers — inspired by Japanese photographer Shigeo Goto — grew wild in different sizes and colors in one outfit, while elongated patches with thickly embroidered fantasy blooms added yet another botanic element to looks that nonetheless felt stylishly urban.

There was a length and a volume for all female sizes and shapes, from short, mid and long skirts that swung wide or fell closer to the body. Square little jackets in novelty florals or raw-edged raffia were sometimes cut out at the shoulders as were dresses and tops; lace-up closures and eyelet variations provided further airy effects. As one key German buyer summed it up, “It was all so pretty and fresh, and I loved how healthy the girls looked.”
