The last time Brett Ratner directed Chris Tucker in a "Rush Hour" movie, the Iraq war hadn't begun, Barry Bonds had hit only 540 home runs and Paris Hilton hadn't made her sex tape. But 2001's "Rush Hour 2" was such a big hit -- grossing $347 million worldwide, more than $100 million more than 1998's first "Rush Hour" -- that New Line Cinema wanted at least one more buddy cop comedy. And here it is, "Rush Hour 3," starring Jackie Chan and Tucker, who, advance of the movie's opening, hams it up here in the lobby of Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills.
