It's still fun, and has a number of great Jackie Chan set pieces, but it's got that early-2000s edge lord thing creeping into the comedy bits, and it's rough at times. My wife and I have talked about this at some length in the past, and watching these back to back was a great example - there was significant media backslide on gender in the early 2000s. There's a lot of "we're over it" energy that only got worse once post 9/11 nihilism kicked in.
I still adore those movies. Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan were both just incredibly funny and charismatic to me. I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say I’ve probably watched them around 100 times
