L. C. ANDERSON HIGH SCHOOL TRIBUTE 24: 1969 YELLOWJACKETS YEARBOOK: ADVERTISERS & RUSH HOUR

MY FAVORITE MOVIE NO. 24 IS "RUSH HOUR" STARRING

"CHRIS TUCKER" AND "JACKIE CHAN"
Rush Hour is a 1998 American buddy action comedy film directed by Brett Ratner and starring Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker as mismatched cops who must rescue the Chinese consul's kidnapped daughter. Released on September 18, 1998, the film grossed over $200 million worldwide. The film's success led to two sequels, Rush Hour 2 (2001) and Rush Hour 3 (2007). PLOT: On the last day of British rule in Hong Kong late 1997, Detective Inspector Lee of the Hong Kong Police Force leads a raid at a shipping bar wharf, hoping to arrest the mysterious crime lord Juntao. He finds only Sang, Juntao's right-hand man, who manages to escape. However, Lee successfully recovers numerous Chinese cultural treasures stolen by Juntao, which he presents as a farewell victory to his departing superiors: Chinese Consul Solon Han and British Commander Thomas Griffin.  Shortly after Han arrives in the United States to take up his new diplomatic post in Los Angeles, his daughter, Soo Yung, is kidnapped by Sang while on her way to her first day of school. The FBI informs Consul Han about the incident. Han calls in Lee to assist in the case. The FBI is afraid that the injury or death of Lee would result in negative attention internationally, decide to pawn him off on the LAPD just to keep him out of their way. The arrogant, reckless and loudmouthed detective, James Carter is tricked into doing this but Carter makes a plan to solve the case himself when he finds out that he has been given a mundane task as punishment for botching a sting operation.
