When Lee gets on the bus outside Grauman's Chinese Theater he travels a short distance and then the bus turns a corner, it travels a few blocks before Lee exits by grabbing a street sign. The sign is for Hollywood. However Grauman's Chinese Theater is on Hollywood, and the bus had supposedly traveled some distance before he got off. See more »

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.

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.
