Big Money, Little Funny

In Rush Hour 2, the stars may get the last laugh, but when do we get ours?

Shades of green: Rush Hour 2 exists only so 
Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker can pick your pockets.

Rated PG-13

Ratner and screenwriter Jeff Nathanson (responsible for bits and pieces of Coyote Ugly, Speed 2 and Twister, which should violate some three-strikes-and-you're-out law) seem to think that getting a funnyman to deliver straight lines (they couldn't be jokes, could they?) warrants a hefty paycheck. In truth, all it does is demand that Tucker, who's already as subtle as a nail gun in the eye, turn up the volume to 11 (do earplugs come with that popcorn?). Tucker spends damned near the entirety of the movie yelling, screaming and screeching at Chan and the audience. And still, he's making jokes about Chan's nationality, as though the two aren't even friends and Rush Hour never happened. If only. Rush Hour 2
