Rush Hour

Year: 1998
Director: Brett Ratner
Cast: Jackie Chan, Chris Tucker, Chris Penn
The classic fish out of water action comedy, part Hong Kong Jackie Chan action film, part Beverly Hills Cop clone, with Rock as the fast talking and funny loudmouth who balances the action with laughs.

The daughter of a rich Asian industrialist is kidnapped for ransom in LA, and the cop sent from China to retrieve her (Chan) has to team up with the irritating sidekick in the form of Rock.

It's a tangent-friendly premise with lots of opportunity for comic banter and Chan's signature stunt-driven fight sequences taken, some more effective than the rest, but above all a lazy good time.
