The main plot centers around two police detectives: a Chinese police inspector (Jackie Chan) and an American LAPD detective (Chris Tucker) who can't seem to avoid misadventures involving menacing crime figures. Distributed by New Line Cinema.
When Hong Kong Inspector Lee is summoned to Los Angeles to investigate a kidnapping, the FBI doesn't want any outside help and assigns cocky LAPD Detective James Carter to distract Lee from the case. Not content to watch the action from the sidelines, Lee and Carter form an unlikely partnership and investigate the case themselves.
