Lee (Jackie Chan) is taken to Grauman's Chinese Theater by Carter (Chris Tucker). In 2013, Chan had his own hand and footprints placed at the same theater. See more »

The TBS version digitally alters the closing credits so that they run the exact length as the bloopers, which are shown at normal speed as the credit scroll zooms past at warp speed. At one point the text actually overlaps the blooper footage. See more »
A funny cop buddy film, with a good chemistry between Chan and Tucker
I recently saw this movie, and I was surprised at how good it was despite some of the *obnoxious* loudmouth phrases by Chris Tucker. I think he got a little too mouthy at some scenes. But other than that the movie is pretty good.
The plot is after consul Han Solon's daughter is kidnapped, a close friend of Han's, Detective Inspector Lee(Jackie Chan) is sent in to help because Han does not fully rely on the work of the FBI alone. So an LAPD officer James Carter(Chris Tucker) is sent in to help keep Lee out of trouble. It had some very good lines passed between the actors, and you could tell they were having a fun time together acting. Some of the martial arts/karate that Chan does in the film is impressive, just like in all his films, and Tucker does a good job playing the loud mouth(even if he did get out of hand sometimes). I'm going to definately see the sequel, Rush Hour 2. I would give this film 3/5 stars. It's a good movie to just rent out, or watch on tv some night.
