Taxi 4 (stylised as T4xi and T4Xi) is a 2007 French comedy film directed by Gérard Krawczyk and the fourth installment of the Taxi series. As with all the other films in the franchise Gallic Taxi, Samy Naceri plays taxi driver "Daniel Morales", this time in a Peugeot 407, unlike the 406 in the previous films. Frédéric Diefenthal is "Émilien Coutant-Kerbalec", whilst Jean-Christophe Bouvet reprises his role as "General Bertineau" yet again.
A Belgian criminal, wanted all over Europe for his crimes, is in the custody of the Police Department of Marseille to be watched for a few hours before transfer to a prison in Congo. Unfortunately Émilien (Frédéric Diefenthal) is tricked by the villain and convinced to let the prisoner go.
After these events he's fired, but luckily for him, his friend Daniel (Samy Naceri) helps him one more time by telling him the location where the criminal is located, having been the taxi driver who drove him after he left the police station, not knowing he was a criminal. With Daniel's skills and his new Peugeot 407, Émillen seeks to capture the criminal to restore his job back.
On the opening day, 450,000 people attended in France with 43,000 in Paris alone. T4xi's Canadian premiere was at the Just for Laughs Comedia Film Festival on 22 July 2007, a week before wide release.
