Oh No They Didn’t: Friday’s Reviews Rage


rushhour3.jpgEvery week we round up selections from the funniest, most obscene and brutal film criticism out there so that you don’t waste your cash at the theaters and laugh a little at Hollywood’s expense. This week: Rush Hour 3 is tired, irritating, unnecessary and cruel. It’s also causing critics to have meltdowns. Now that’s the mark of a bad movie. See below.

“In Rush Hour 3, the latest installment in the popular action-comedy franchise, Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker return as mismatched cops who find themselves . . . . Honestly, do you really care?” — Newsweek

“So lackluster that it’s not even worth searching out when it plays on television. The Rush Hour experience, which never attained anything resembling full speed, has come to a crashing halt.” — Reelviews

“Tucker’s shtick is starting to feel long in the tooth, and the thesp feels increasingly like a second fiddle.” — Variety

“This third outing in the series (the last entry wobbled in six years ago) falls flat faster than most of Chan’s goofy line readings.” — Austin Chronicle

“Is this picture the quintessential 2007 throwaway, or is it a vision of our cinematic future?” — Entertainment Weekly
