When Carter arrives at the Consul's mansion and we see Carter's Stingray in the background as we walks over the door threshold, the wheels are different than the wheels before-when he threw the keys to the agent and told him to 'take care of it'. See more »
That's why I don't have no partner, that's one thing I learned from my daddy.
Your father was a policeman?
Fifteen years LAPD.
My daddy also a policeman.
Your daddy was a cop?
Not a cop, an officer, a legend all over Hong Kong.
My daddy a legend too all over America. My daddy once arrested fifteen people in one night by himself.
My daddy arrested 25 by himself.
...My daddy once saved five crackheads from a burnin' building, by himself.
My daddy once caught a bullet with his bare hand.

The pool hall sequence was also edited, where Carter uses the line "What's up, my nigga." When he passes another bar patron, the line was altered where "What's up Negro" was substituted. The consequent scenes where Jackie Chan uses the "N" word were unedited. See more »

Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan, the best comedic duo since Lethal Weapon bring us Rush Hour. A classic action movie that brings great action as well as awesome comedy that makes you laugh every minute. Chris Tucker has always been one of my favorite comedians, even before I saw Rush Hour, so it was great to see him in Rush Hour. I know a lot of people find him annoying, but I thought he was just so funny. He showed off his talents in Rush Hour. Not only him, but this is the film that is making Jackie Chan into a world wide super star. His stunts are simply incredible. Rush Hour is one of those very fun action/comedy movies that I'm sure you'll enjoy if you love movies like Lethal Weapon or 48 Hours. The story was just pure entertainment and really kept me on the edge.
Lee is a body guard to the Chinese ambassador and is also a close friend, he also is a teacher to his daughter, Soo Yong. The ambassador goes to the United States with his daughter, but she is kidnapped by an evil man of the Chinese Consol. They want 50 million dollars in return, but the ambassador thinks that Lee should be involved, so he sends for him, but the F.B.I. doesn't want him near the case. So they hire L.A.P.D. screw up, James Carter, to babysit him. But together, the fastest hands in the east meets the fastest mouth in the west, they must learn to work together despite their complete opposite personalities and get the girl back.
Rush Hour is a guaranteed classic down the lines somewhere, I'm sure. It's already spawned a sequel and it's been a success. Chris and Jackie are such a great team, I was really impressed with their chemistry. My favorite scene is where Lee plays "War" by Edwin Starr in Carter's car, and he doesn't know how to say the lyrics correctly, and Carter shows him some moves, it was such a classic scene that brought me down to the floor laughing. I highly recommend Rush Hour, it's all in good fun and it'll give you more than a few good laughs.
