Jackie Chan and Rush Hour movies

So I recently wrote about how Rush Hour 3 is not funny and I don’t really understand the humor involved. I wondered why Jackie Chan puts himself up to it, and if he actually thinks it funny. Apparently he doesn’t either:

Jackie Chan no fan of ‘Rush Hour’ series

Not surprisingly, Jackie Chan explains he does these movies because of irresistible sums of money, and to satisfy his fans. He also noted that he really doesn’t understand the American humor involved, and he doesn’t like the way fight scenes play out.

Reading this gives me a little bit of hope because now I know that my concerns are shared by others.
