The fastest hands in the East meet the biggest mouth in the West when legendary martial arts daredevil Jackie Chan (Shanghai Noon, The Forbidden Kingdom) teams with comedic powerhouse Chris Tucker ("Jackie Brown," The Fifth Element) in Rush Hour. When Hong Kong police detective inspector Lee's (Chan) favorite pupil is kidnapped in America, the dedicated cop and martial arts genius travels to the United States to find her. Unhappy to have a meddling outsider, the FBI assigns reckless, arrogant and infuriating LAPD detective James Carter (Tucker) to baby-sit Lee--and keep him away from the investigation. But these two very different cops will stop at nothing to find the missing girl.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A kick-happy buddy film!
Fresh: Raucously entertaining!
Fresh: Rush Hour effectively teams Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in a formulaic but funny action comedy that should please fans of both stars.
Rotten: Hollywood calculation can't match the primitive eager-to-please quality that made those Hong Kong films refreshing; they were appealing because they were so free of irony.
