Rush Hour Series Episode 1

A lethal 48 hours with a Chinese boy scout and a Beverly Hills supercop

Jackie Chan cut his teeth (and every other body part) in Hong Kong kung fu flicks and police stories throughout the 1970s and 80s, but he didn’t achieve Hollywood superstardom until he hitched his wagon to the 1998 action-comedy Rush Hour. Was Chan’s biggest stunt partnering with renegade cop Chris Tucker, and bumbling his way through Los Angeles tourist spots on the road to rescue a kidnapped 11-year-old girl?  Find out if their sweet-and-sour chemistry gives the buddy cop formula a new flavor.
