Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The whole film plays like an outtake, and that I do mean as a compliment."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"For fans of the still-youthful franchise, this movie's going to hit the spot."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Less compelling than the first, but fun for fans."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Indubitavelmente superior ao original."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"a series of high-decibel Chris Tucker improvisations alternating with a series of truncated Jackie Chan action moments."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"While the rest of it isn't really any good, it's certainly no chore to watch."
‑ Charles Taylor,
"About half as much fun as the original, and for August, that's probably good enough."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"A gaudy, whirling dervish of escapist fun."
‑ Margaret A. McGurk, Cincinnati Enquirer
"Follows so closely in the footsteps of its hugely successful predecessor that an actual review is practically unnecessary."
‑ Steven D. Greydanus, Decent Films Guide
"Gives mindless entertainment a bad name."
‑ Andrew Howe,
"The film seems content to rely on the formula that could (small sigh) extend for a few more sequels."
‑ Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"Delivers its share of laughs, but offers nothing you haven't already seen."
‑ Melanie McFarland, Seattle Times
"A well-honed stunts-and-shtick flick."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"The action scenes are still good, but the comedy itself is very slight."
‑ Mark Dujsik, Mark Reviews Movies
"If Chris Tucker ever comes to my house for dinner, he'd better bring some aspirin."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
