Coinciding with the launch of Rush Hour 3, the only book on the Rush Hour movies—a full-color companion for fans, with more than 250 photos and excerpts from the outrageously comic action-packed scripts.

"I'm Detective Carter. Do you speak-a any English? Do-you-understand-the- words-that-are-coming- out-of-my-mouth?" And so a legendary partnership is born. One's all talk, the other's all action. Streetwise L.A. detective James Carter (Chris Tucker) and Hong Kong supercop Chief Inspector Lee (Jackie Chan) mix punches with punchlines in the hilarious action-comedy trilogy Rush Hour.

From the streets of Los Angeles (Rush Hour) to Hong Kong and Las Vegas (Rush Hour 2) and Paris high atop the Eiffel Tower (Rush Hour 3), these unlikely partners take down criminals around the globe, and let the wisecracks fly:

"You are a civilian. In Hong Kong, I am Michael Jackson and you are Toto."
"You think they scare me? I'm from Los Angeles. We invented gangs!"
"Just follow my lead, act like a tourist." "I am a tourist, fool!"

Rush Hour: Lights, Camera, Action! includes an introduction by Brett Ratner (who directed all three movies), a foreword by major fan Quentin Tarantino, movie stills, storyboards, behind-the-scenes material, excerpts from the three scripts, and film reviews. 250 color photos.
