Rush Hour (1998)

Double Impact show

Summary: 049 - This is apparently our first foray into the year that was 1998, so what better time capsule to kick it off than the cross-cultural shenanigans of Chris Tucker trying Chinese food for the first time? This movie wears its 1998 on its sleeve - its got it all - from its celebration of ill-fitting baggy suits and a Dru Hill soundtrack, to its multicultural stereotypes and a plot rooted in the English handover of Hong Kong. But most importantly, JACKIE FREAKING CHAN! So, join us as we dive deep on this late 90's pop-cultural-artefact and decide if it hols up today, or is best left in the past.
