Even better than Rush Hour
2 June 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Brett Ratner the director of this movie & other movies such as "Red Dragon & Rush hour 1,2 & now also making part 3, delivers his best directing performance i think. Money talks probably didn't get as big as Rush hour because of the fact there is a lot of swearing throughout this movie, which makes it even more hilarious. Chris Tucker & Charlie Sheen make a good team together, If you like Rush Hour, Friday, 48 Hours, Starsky & Hutch & Lethal Weapon 4 then you'll love this movie. Chris Tucker is a crack up throughout the movie, while Charlie Sheen is good in being serious yet still funny. I rate this movie a 9 / 10, i recommend this movie to any Chris Tucker fans or a good movie to watch with a group of friends.
