Summary: Pretty darn funny and action-packed.
Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker star in a martial-arts comedy-drama about two detectives looking for the kidnapped daughter of a friend. They really hit it off well, they're quite funny together, and Tucker isn't annoying like he's been in his other films (such as The Fifth Element). Everyone had a great time, it's hysterical in places, and paced well with Jackie's typical extremely choreographed martial arts fights. I loved it.

Viewing Location: CO Worldwide, NYC Grade: C-
Summary: Racist and not all that interesting.
Rehashed drek. Full of asian stereotypes and racism. For Pete's sake, Jackie Chan steps off the plane and you hear a "gong". C'mon. Chris Tucker makes a comment to a bad guy about his "sweet and sour chicken ass." Lovely. Jackie Chan is, as usual, talented and great at the action scenes, but there are better movies of his out there.

Summary: It's a Jackie Chan movie
Jackie Chan movies suck infrequently. Chris Tucker is substantially more tolerable than he was in The Fifth Element. There's fighting, and lots of the movie is in English. Plus that old guy from The Full Monty is in it, so bonus.

Summary: simple-minded but fun
I laughed all the way through this. Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan worked really well together. Chris Tucker gave the Fifth Element a whole extra dimension, and this movie moved him into my "will consider any movie he's in" list.
