Rush Hour (18-Sep-1998)

Director: Brett Ratner

Writers: Jim Kouf; Ross LaManna

Keywords: Action/Comedy, Undercover Cops

Kidnappers demand a $50M ransom for the 11-year-old daughter of the Chinese Consul; as the FBI investigates, the Consul hires a Hong Kong police detective, Inspector Lee. The FBI assigns loudmouthed and troublesome LAPD detective James Carter to work with Lee, but mostly to keep him out of the way of the investigation. Quick-paced buddy cop action/comedy, with great chemistry between Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker. Followed by two sequels.
