Corrected entry: At the karaoke pub when Carter tries to order the people around in Cantonese and Lee translates to Carter what he has just said, the translation is utter nonsense (Lee says Carter told them to "pick up their samurai swords and shave your butt"). Most of what Carter says cannot even be recognised as Cantonese, except for the last few words, which mean "go home and sleep".
Corrected entry: When they set up the girl who kept kicking Carter in the face to "shoot" Ricky Tan, he falls in the water, behind the boat. Although it was a set up, the propellers would have sucked him up and finished him off. There's no way he could have survived. He didn't fall that far into the water, either. (00:33:25 - 01:06:20)
Corrected entry: There's a timeline issue here. Rush Hour 1 is set a couple of months after the end of British rule in Hong Kong i.e. around summer time 1997. This film picks up where the original left off with Lee and Carter having a 'vacation' in Hong Kong. Which means some of the mobile phones and cars/ fashions are four years too early for 1997. Carter says something about getting a new laptop for Ricky Tan with a DVD player. In 1997 he wouldn't have known what a DVD was. (00:18:00)
Corrected entry: Chris Tucker goes to Heaven on Earth massage parlour in Hong Kong. He realises later that he left his passport there. On his way to go retrieve it, he gets distracted when he sees Ricky Tan and never makes it to the massage parlour to retrieve the passport. Yet, later on in the movie, he goes back to LA without a passport.
Corrected entry: Towards the end when Hu Li puts the grenade in Lee's mouth and the man tapes his head up with the box tape he wraps it all the way around his head many times, despite the fact that his head is against a couple of the iron bars behind him and the man's arm that is around his neck is holding him still.
Corrected entry: Ricky Tan bought the plates for making 100 dollar bills on the black market. The plates, the only ones ever to leave the U.S., were supposedly given to the Shah of Iran in 1959. However the bills produced from these plates were the new look, modern "Benjamins" that have just been produced over the past couple of years.
