I hate to use the phrase, "they're only in it for the money," but if any sequel ever exemplified that ethos, it's this one. Ultimately, Rush Hour 3 is a one trick pony whose day has long since passed.

It's a tedious, soulless, junky comedy whose outtakes reveal just how little effort aside from writing Tucker that big fat check and another for renting the Eiffel Tower was put into getting it on the screen.

It seems fairly likely that this is a case of returning once more with a bucket before the well runs dry.

It's hard to think of a sadder commentary about Hollywood's sequel fetish than the existence of Rush Hour 3.

It may have taken six years to get Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker back together but the chemistry is still there even if it looks like everyone probably signed on just to mint money.

There is nothing new, nothing engaging, nothing to indicate that anyone is here for any reason other than the paycheck.

Rush Hour 3 isn't quite painful enough to kill off a film legend, but I suspect it would give Jean-Luc Godard a sharp pain in his side, at the very least.

Please, please don't make a fourth.

Chan still sounds silly talkin' jive, the action sequences are peppy if not exactly memorable, and the gags have been sitting out long enough to make penicillin.

No matter how fast Chris Tucker shoots his mouth or Jackie Chan flashes his fists, they can't recapture the charm of the original Rush Hour in this third installment.

Humor is as obvious as the fact that Brett Ratner and screenwriter Jeff Nathanson watched every single Bruce Lee and John Woo movie before making this.

Although much of Rush Hour 3 is in Paris, it's no French pastry. It's more week-old Happy Meal.

The third installment is so cartoonishly stupid it makes the original look like a classic.

A movie that not only depends on but demands you don't think in order to enjoy it.

This Rush job should put the franchise down for good.

A sluggish repeat of its predecessors that remains mistakenly convinced that miscommunication between Tucker and co-star Jackie Chan is the funniest thing ever.

I'm not gonna lie to you: A lot of the movie is straight-up stupid.

The film is formulaic and the plot is barely connected together. But it moves along quickly and there's the occasional smile.

A dated, stale, anti-American comedy. I hope they all make enough money never to make another Rush Hour movie again.

The material here makes one wonder how low you have to set the bar before it becomes irrelevant.
