Trivia

The original casting choices for the roles that ended up being Lee and Carter were Chris Farley and Martin Lawrence, and many news reports connected Farley's not making the film to his tragic death in December 1997. In fact, Farley and the production for the film had decided a few years earlier not to work together on the film, as they were already leaning towards the ultimate casting choice for the two leads (one Asian actor and one black actor); Farley's downward spiral in real life covered roughly the same time period that this film was made.

amusing buddy film
13 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

The Chinese Consul's daughter is kidnapped and the FBI steps in to investigate the case. The Consul doesn't trust them however, so he calls in an old friend and police inspector from Hong Kong to aid in the rescue of his daughter. Not wanting to work with outsiders, the FBI pairs him with a cocky, loudmouthed street cop who dreams of becoming a federal agent but doesn't work well with partners. The formula is tired and predictable, but it's redeemed to a surprising extent by the effective pairing of Chan and Tucker who are an ideal action-comedy duo. Lots of gimmicky action scenes and big time laughs, with the added bonus of a script that doesn't require a lot of thinking. ***
