Rush Hour 3

The fate of this franchise kind of reminds me of what happened with the Austin Powers series. The first one was cute and funny and made a lot of money, so they decided to make another one, then another one, but unfortunately they realized that there just wasn't that much new territory to explore with their concept, so the later movies wound up being more than a bit lame.

Even the *jokes* in Rush Hour 3 were trite. Jackie Chan was his usual bouncing-all-over-the-scenery self, only older, but the *acting* was non-existant.

Instead of seeing Rush Hour 3, I recommend hitting Blockbuster or Netflix and watching the first one again. You won't miss anything, and you might actually laugh.
