Outtakes from the film play during the end credits. See more »
When aired on TV, right after Lee and Carter fell through the bridge and were nearly run over, Carters says "I think I broke my shin", the line was removed, because it sounded too much like: "I think my broke my shit!" When Sang tries to abduct Soo Yung, the part where she whacks him in the face with her necklace, cutting the corner of his eye, was cut so the scar below his right eye remains a mystery; When Clive aims a gun at Carter's head and says "I'm gonna blow his freakin' head all over the parking lot, asshole", the line was changed to: "I'm gonna splatter his brains all over the parking lot..."; The word 'ass' is replaced by 'butt' and 'rear' throughout the movie; When a character says 'God damn' or 'God dammit', the 'God' was removed; At the bar, Carter's greeting of 'What's up, my nigga?' was changed to 'What's up, Negro?", it's even changed to that when Lee accidentally says it to the bartender; When Carter takes a joint from a man in the bar and breathes it in, the scene of him having a small trip was deleted; the part where Lee stops Johnson and says "he's just joking" was altered to delete the scene of him noticing his hands are on Johnson's breasts; When Carter shoots the C4 in the back of Clive's car and it explodes, the explosion was shortened; The outtakes were also altered to eliminate profanity.

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.
