Rush Hour 3 reminds us that Tucker is an utterly strange entertainment phenomenon: He exists only in the world of these movies.

By no means is it a great movie, but it is great slapstick fun, one of summer's guilty pleasures.

It's a jerry-built kick-ass insult machine assembled entirely out of secondhand parts.

This may be the best-looking film in the series; certainly, the Paris setting, with a climactic battle among the girders of the Eiffel Tower, keeps the visuals interesting. Better you buy a postcard.

Strangest of all, Roman Polanski shows up to torture our heroes with a Paris phone book, then subject them to a full-cavity search. A gratuitous nod to "Chinatown"? Who knows? Who cares?

Feels as desperate and static as being trapped in a traffic jam.

It works primarily because of the chemistry between Chan and Tucker, which is at its combustible best this time out.
