Jackie Chan was almost killed filming the scene where he is almost crushed by metal boxes. They slammed together about a quarter of a second after his head was clear. See more »

When aired on television on TBS in 2001, the following alterations were made: usage of the word 'shit' was completely removed and replaced by 'stuff','it', etc., the usage of the word 'ass' was limited; The scene at the police station where Carter apologizes to Johnson for spreading rumors at Christmas about them sleeping together and Johnson is enraged, the part where Lee stops her and says that Carter was just kidding and also notices his hands are on Johnson's breasts was removed; when Johnson and Lee come to Soo Yung's aide in the van, Johnson's sentence of 'it'll blow if I take it off' was removed; many of the outtakes were removed and shortened, like Jackie Chan's "My daddy cotcha bullet by his bare hands, no bullshit." was shortened; at the beginning where Clive shows Carter some C4 in his trunk, Carter's response of 'the Iraqis can't even get this shit' was altered (by replacing 'Iraqis' with Americans and removing the word shit). Also at the beginning and endings of the commercial breaks, interviews with Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker and scenes from Rush Hour 2 were shown. Jackie and Chris discussed working on the movie and commenting on each other. See more »
Rush Hour is fast, funny and Fantastic. It is 2 hours of non stop entertainment. I have seen the sequel, No where near the Classic. Jackie Chan is amazing as the martial arts expert cop from Hong Kong. Chris Tucker is Hilarious as the fast talking cop from America. What happens when two people like this meet, Excitement and entertainment. This is Jackie's Best Hollywood Movie. I have seen a few Chris Tucker movie, this is his Best performance. I hope the third in the series will entertain as the First. If you have not seen this movie, then i recommend this movie. A great action comedy movie for all type of audience to enjoy. One of the best cop buddy movies since Lethal Weapon.
