After filming and editing was completed, a rough test cut was shown to audiences - who demanded more Jackie Chan action scenes. The crew went back for a few more filming days and added in the scene where Chan fights multiple bad guys during the closing confrontation and the giant vase scene. See more »
When Carter is posing for the tourists' photos on the bus, the badge he shows them is pretty small in size. Later, when Carter and Lee put their hands up to the cab driver pointing a gun at them, Carter shows the driver his badge, which is significantly larger than the badge he was wearing on the bus.

This movie is pure comedy from the beginning to the end. You will have a good laugh thanks to Chris Tucker in his role of Carter, a clumsy LA cop. The city of Los Angeles is spectacular and is a great scenario for this entertaining movie. Jackie Chan at its best kicking asses everywhere with an outstanding humble attitude. I think Americans love Jackie Chan because he's so nice and great person.
The main reason why I like this movie is the wonderful duo they play, constantly arguing, while walking around exciting California, USA, about everything, but in the meantime they are loyal partners. The great diversity there is in America singles out in a city like Los Angeles when we go through Chinatown. And fortunately, the movie brings us out there. Interesting cultures melt into a huge variety of ethnicities that make anything possible to happen. This is why America is so interesting and wonderful and we from abroad love her as a beautiful land.
All in all, this is a worth-seeing Hollywood movie and probably you would like to watch it several times!
