Jan (Age 11) - ★★★★1/2

"Awesome action scenes and hilarious comedy moments this movie is perfect for a person like me. The only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars is because I rathered the first films comedy moments otherwise it was one of the most enjoyable movies I've watched. I would recommend this to anyone who loves the genres comedy and action. My favourite part is when Carter is in the club singing and dancing like Michael Jackson . Overall a brilliant movie, Jackie chan was brilliant as Lee, while Chris Tucker did an equaly excellent job as LAPD officer Carter."

There's another oddball crime duo but in animated form with Big Hero 6. Other buddy comedies include Central Intelligence, Ocean's Eight, and of course the other Rush Hour movies. Check out Megamind, Austin Powers and The Mask for more accident prone heroes. Director Brett Ratner also made one of the X-Men movies, The Last Stand. There's more action packed undercover cops (with less comedy) in The Fast and the Furious.
