"Buddy Cop" genre films require a lot of attention no matter if it's the first or third installment. The first Rush Hour (1998) I found fairly entertaining because of its relationship between Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker's opposite like personalities. Of course, this is the defining element of these kinds of movies. But it worked so well for this franchise not just because Chan is Chinese and Tucker's American, but because how extremely opposite their version of negotiations are denoted as. Carter (Tucker) is more upfront, while Lee (Chan) is more diplomatic, that is until he's forced to be upfront when Carter drags him into trouble.

The first installment to Rush Hour (1998) is actually more fun than the first but it still could be funnier without the constant crude jokes.
