Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker reprise their roles as Chief Inspector Lee and LAPD Detective James Carter, in their third outing, which takes place in Paris: When a Chinese ambassador about to reveal the identity of the leader of a notorious crime syndicate is shot and lies in a coma the two detectives travel to France to find out who's responsible. Also with Max von Sydow, Noemie Lenoir and Hiroyuki Sanada. Directed by Brett Ratner. [1:30]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man and a woman wearing a corset and stockings kiss, they lie back in hotel bed, she nibbles on his ear and tells him, "I'm a bad girl," she changes into a bra and panties, he orders a bottle of honey and a Red Bull from room service, they continue to kiss, we see her on top of him, and he caresses her back and they kiss again; at this point he is bare-chested and the scene is interrupted.
 A woman wears a very low-cut dress that reveals cleavage. Cabaret dancers wear tops that are made only of beads and reveal part of their bare breasts. Several scantily clad women dressed in cabaret costumes are shown in a dressing room, a man enters and identifies himself as a costume designer and he has them disrobe to evaluate them for new costumes; we see the women lined up wearing only thong underwear (bare buttocks, backs, legs and shoulders are visible) and he looks them over. Women wearing men tailored suits dance on a stage, they pull their pants off and we see them in panties, garter belts and stockings that reveal their bare thighs. A police officer handcuffs two women and has them bend over the hood of their car; they both wear low-cut and short dresses that reveal bare legs and cleavage.
 A man standing outside a room where a man and a woman are fighting thinks that they are having sex, judging from the moaning and groaning he hears.
 A man speaks to a woman using sexually suggestive terms, assuming she doesn't understand English, but she does. A woman tries to seduce a man and invites him to her room (please see the Violence/Gore category for more details). A man tells another man that he has arranged a date for them with two women and that one of the women wants to play "hide the little Asian policeman." A man says that he'd like to watch a dirty movie. An outtake reel shows a man talking about "dirty movies" he'd like to watch, and he refers to a variety of animals. A man talks about French women being "naked 34% of the time."
 It is implied that a man conducts a body cavity search on two other men (we later see the two men walking as if they are in pain).
 A man sings a song, makes gestures with his hips and grabs his crotch while conducting traffic. A man kisses another man on both facial cheeks.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - A sniper takes position on a rooftop and shoots a man in the chest (we see blood spurt and the man falls to the floor).
 A woman is stuck inside a large turning wheel and is crushed as the wheel turns and she is caught between the wheel and a girder (we hear a crunch and splatter and people that are watching react).
 A man holds a gun to a woman's head, he is shot in the back and falls into a fountain (we see blood on his back and blood spreads in the water). We see blood on a man's face and ear after a fight.
 Two men fight with swords: one is slashed on the arm (we see a bloody cut) and the other talks about killing him with a 1,000 cuts, one man falls out a window, the other pulls him up, then he falls and catches onto a girder, they continue to fight on exposed girders high on the Eiffel Tower, they fall, are caught in a safety net, the net pulls apart, they cling to it, and one man falls and crashes into a ticket booth far below (we see the booth splintered).
 Two men are shot at, they jump off the Eiffel Tower and sail through the air using a flag as a parachute, and they crash into a large fountain (no one is hurt).
 A man accompanies a woman to her room, she tells him, "someone is going to die here tonight," she pulls out a hand-held fan that has blades along the rim and tries to slash him with it, they fight with punches and kicks and hurling furniture, and the man and another man run away as she throws knives at them (no one is injured).
 A car is chased by several motorcycles: they speed through traffic, two motorcycles crash into the open doors of the car and the drivers are thrown, and another motorcycle crashes through a parked van and the driver is thrown through the windshield.
 A man in a speeding car tries to kick a motorcyclist off a motorcycle, the cyclist grabs and holds onto the man's leg pulling him back and forth, the car tips on its side, the motorcyclist is pushed into the car and is punched repeatedly by two men inside, and he is then thrown out of the car and slams into a fire hydrant.
 A man jumps through a window and lands on a large flower bed on the ground, gets up uninjured and chases another man through traffic, one man is nearly struck by a car, one man slides under a closing door, they hold guns on each other, one shoots at the other, and a car speeds toward them and one man runs away.
 A man loads a gun while walking toward a patient in a hospital bed, he takes aim and two other men with guns threaten him; they struggle briefly, and a gunfight ensues causing broken glass and objects.
 During a stage performance dancers point guns at a car where a woman sits, they open fire (not with real bullets), her name is etched in the car door, and later men in the audience open fire (with real bullets) and the car is riddled with holes (the woman gets out of the car uninjured).
 Two men are tied by the wrists to the ceiling and beaten in the back and chest by two other men using what looks like telephone books; then a man puts on a rubber glove and it is implied that he conducts a body cavity search (we later see the two men walking as if they are in pain).
 A woman throws a knife at another woman. A man holds a woman by the throat, another man grabs him and the woman kicks and punches him. A man tied to a chair is struck in the face while being questioned. Two men punch a man in the face at the same time and he falls to the ground.
 A very large man fights with two men: he throws one man, steps on his chest, then he throws both men, one man tries to use weapons and hits himself in the head with nunchucks, the large man then picks the two men up as they cling to a pole, spins them around and they fall to the ground.
 A man holds a pair of scissors to another man's neck and two men hold guns to a woman's head; the two men drop their weapons and a woman holds them at gunpoint. A man holds a gun to another man's head and pulls the trigger (it is not loaded). A man holds a gun to another man's head and forces him to sing the American National Anthem. Two men are held at gunpoint by several other men.
 A young woman is bound and dangles from a girder high in the Eiffel Tower. Several children surround and hold pointed spears at a man who's trying to walk through a martial arts school. A woman slaps a man in the face.
 A car explodes as several people walk toward it (they are blown to the ground but no one is injured). Several cars crash together in a busy intersection.
 A woman talks about someone being ceremonially beheaded. A man says, "let me kill someone tonight." Two men running from gunmen slide down a chute and into a sewer collection tank (we see them later with stained clothing and people react to their odor). A man yells at another man about having shot his girlfriend in the neck. A cab driver tells an African-American man that he doesn't drive "his kind," meaning American. A police officer talks in racist terms about Iranians. An interrogation scene shows a nun translating for a French-speaking man and there are many near obscenities uttered (please see the Language category for more details).
 A dog urinates on a man's shoe (we see the stream and hear the trickle). There are two references to someone being constipated.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
