Storyline

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 Lordship

Trivia

Ziyi Zhang could not speak English, so she had to take direction via the combination of an interpreter (often Jackie Chan) and Director Brett Ratner essentially performing "charades". Her character only says three English words in the movie: "Some apple?" and, later, "Out!" In an interview, Roselyn Sanchez said that Ziyi Zhang tried learning English from her, but tried to discourage her as she would have ended up speaking it with a Puerto Rican accent. See more »

Goofs

Lee and Carter arrive at the Yau Ma Tei Police Station while inside the station the signs say Central Police Station - two different areas of Hong Kong. See more »

Quotes

Captain Chin: Chief Inspector Lee will supervise your people.
Agent Sterling: No, he will report to me. Do we understand each other?
[Lee and Carter pass through the room naked]
Agent Sterling: Who the hell is that?
Captain Chin: That is, uh... Chief Inspector Lee.

Alternate Versions

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.

TERRIFIC SEQUEL!!!! BETTER THAN THE FIRST!!!!!!!
8 September 2003 | by rchrdsheltSee all my reviews

I saw the first Rush Hour and didn't know what to expect when i watched it at a friend's house. I watched it and thought it was one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. I was glad that it was something fresh and new as the Lethal Weapon movies (Which I also thought were excellent!!!!!!!) had finished and i thought that it was even better than them. Then when i heard that they were making Rush Hour 2 I couldn't wait until it came out, however i was worried that it might not be as good as the first as very few sequels are these days, but i was not disappointed in the slightest. I laughed all the way through this movie and even more than the first one. Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker are perfect for the roles and both are excellent throughout the movie which has even more humor than Rush Hour 1. Rush Hour 1 is still excellent but i think Rush Hour 2 has to be funnier having watched them both hundreds of times. I cannot wait until Rush hour 3 comes out!

I highly recommend this movie and Rush Hour 1 to all action/comedy fans out there!
