When Carter (Tucker) and Lee (Chan) are getting to know each other at the beginning, Lee reveals to Carter that Juntao killed his partner (after Carter questions the very existence of Juntao). Yet, towards the end when Juntao is on the stage, after taking over for Consul Han, it takes Lee a while to recognize that it is actually Juntao. This could mean that Lee has only ever heard about Juntao's exploits but has never actually seen him before. It's safe to say that at the end, Lee connects the dots and finally has a face to match with the name. See more »

Obviously, "Rush Hour" is mostly just another buddy comedy, but there's so much hilarious dialogue between Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker, that it's all worthwhile. When a consul's daughter gets kidnapped, Tucker gets hired to take the case, but Chan gets brought in from Hong Kong to assist. Naturally, they have a very hard time cooperating.
I guess that a major aspect of these movies is that you shouldn't try to take them seriously; just accept them as completely crazy. With Chan doing his martial arts and Tucker being a loudmouth, it's a great time from start to finish. Also starring Elizabeth Pena, Chris Penn, and Tom Wilkinson. I liked the sequel equally.
