rush hour was just one big fat paycheck for jackie chan

This really isn't a surprise... Jackie Chan recently admitted that he isn't a fan of his own Rush Hour movies, even though they were huge box office hits: Jackie Chan No Fan of 'Rush Hour' Series. He made the first one to test the U.S. market, made the second one because he was offered an insane amount of money, and the third one was for the fans. I wish Jackie had just stuck to his gut feelings and refrained from making these godawful movies. Unfortunately, the Rush Hour movies are the ones that people are going to remember, at least in the United States. I found this quote particularly telling: "I spent four months making this film and I still don't fully understand the humor." You and me both, Jackie.
