A loyal and dedicated Hong Kong Inspector teams up with a reckless and loudmouthed L.A.P.D. detective to rescue the Chinese Consul's kidnapped daughter, while trying to arrest a dangerous crime lord along the way.
It's vacation time for Det. James Carter and he finds himself alongside Det. Lee in Hong Kong wishing for more excitement. While Carter wants to party and meet the ladies, Lee is out to track down a Triad gang lord who may be responsible for killing two men at the American Embassy. Things get complicated as the pair stumble onto a counterfeiting plot by L.A. crime boss Steven Reign and Triad Ricky Tan, an ex-cop who played a mysterious part in the death of Det. Lee's father. Throw in a power struggle between Tan and the gorgeous but dangerous Hu Li and the boys are soon up to their necks in fist fights and life-threatening situations. A trip back to the U.S. may provide the answers about the bombing, the counterfeiting, and the true allegiance of sexy customs agent Isabella. Then again, it may turn up more excitement than Carter was looking for during his vacation.Written by
The scene where Carter and Lee are running down the street naked in Hong Kong was an actual take. Production could not block the street off for the shoot. See more »
Carter buys into the craps game for $100,000 and two stacks of 20 chips were then slid in front of him. He complains that he was given $500 chips. It would take ten stacks of $500 chips to make $100,000. See more »

The televised version aired on Fox, 6 May 2005 included alternate footage to replace questionable language. The new footage included:
1) James Carter saying "Yeah, this is my titty - I mean, yeah, this is my city"; the alternate footage changes it to "Yeah, that's right."
2) Ricky Tan's line "I hate that fortune cookie shit" was changed to "Where did you get that? In a fortune cookie?" This shot is noticeably changed from the original - it features an even tighter close-up of John Lone's face to the point where the film grain is very evident.
Jackie and Chris make RUSH HOUR 2 a success ( not forgetting Bret Ratner and other cast and crew of course). Lee and Carter are back together again and this time the tables are turned. Rush hour 2 is mainly funny on the text. Especially Chris Tucker, everyone complains about the racist jokes but then it`s what makes the movie funny I`m not offended by it. Rush hour 2 is funny really Funny. If I had a ranking it 9/10. This one is way better than the first one.
