release year:1998 genre:action/comedy viewing setting:theater, 10/9/98 what I expected:not much what I got:passable entertainment
synopsis:Sassy American cop teams with Hong Kong cop to find a kidnapped girl.
impressions:I don't like Chris Tucker. I don't like Chris Tucker. I don't like Chris Tucker! He's an irritating little bitch. His character in this movie would never make it as a real cop. But this is the movies, not reality. Jackie Chan did a good job, and there was much humor in addition to the fight scenes.
acting:Decent, for what it was (an irritating black comedian and an action star who speaks another native language.)
final word:It wasn't as irritating as I expected, but it wasn't a classic either. It was funny, though.
