2.0 out of 5 stars Poor disk quality.
I used to think double sided discs were a good buy. These discs seem to play fine in spots, but skip in exactly the same spot every time no matter what DVD player I use. Good movies, bad disc quality.

### ABOUT THE 4 FILM FAVORITES SERIES ###

Warner Brothers/New Line's "4 Film Favorites" is a line of two-disc sets consisting of four films that are part of a series/franchise or center around a common theme. Each disc is dual-sided, with the contents of each side being a bit-for-bit copy (a "disc image") of a previous DVD release. Usually the very first DVD release of a film is used as the master for each side, which could be either single-layer or dual-layer. If the DVD master that is used first came out at the infancy of DVD production (the late 1990s), there may be little to no extras, and even a poor film transfer when compared to a later re-release. Also, if that original release was a two-disc set, or a dual-sided disc (see: Lethal Weapon 4), only Disc 1 or Side A will be used. The "4 Film Favorites" line is priced with the budget-conscience consumer in mind, with Target having the lowest price at 9.99 each (occasionally on sale for 8.99). Other stores will inevitably be priced higher, though I don't recommend paying more than ten dollars for each two-disc set.

This review is from: 4 Film Favorites: Chris Tucker (Money Talks, Rush Hour, Rush Hour 2, Rush Hour 3) (DVD)
I received the movies in a timely manner. However when I opened the case the DVD's were stacked on top of each other. Thankfully they weren't scratched and I had extra cases laying around to put them in.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great value buy, for casual fans of chris tucker/brett ratner films..., September 22, 2014
This review is from: 4 Film Favorites: Chris Tucker (Money Talks, Rush Hour, Rush Hour 2, Rush Hour 3) (DVD)
So far, Chris Tucker and director Brett Ratner have collaborated together on four wildly entertaining action comedies, which are included in this collection. Money Talks (1997), Rush Hour (1998), Rush Hour 2 (2001), and Rush Hour 3 (2007), are each on a separate DVD. All four discs are mounted to a single spindle in the center of the case. If you care about the condition of the discs, you will probably want to find an alternate way of storing them, as they tend to get scratched up when mounted on a single spindle.

Chris Tucker's outrageous onscreen persona, usually works best when paired with a more conventional type personality. Charlie Sheen has this role in Money Talks, playing an investigative TV reporter, while martial arts superstar Jackie Chan, is Tucker's partner in the Rush Hour trilogy, films which took the "buddy cop" genre to a whole new level.

Each of these films is a winner. Tucker is a more loose and raw in Money Talks, but his comedic talent is clearly evident. In Rush Hour, Tucker clearly demonstrates that he is ready for stardom. His partnership with Chan is a unique symbiotic relationship, which brings out the best in each performer. Their chemistry together is special, and just so much fun to watch.

Having appeared in only one non-Rush Hour film since 1998, at this point in Chris Tucker's career, the Rush Hour series has come to define a significant section of it. His growth and maturity is evident in the later films, as is an improvement in Tucker's fighting skills.

Jackie Chan's physical abilities are near legendary, but despite making movies in America for many years, Chan's lack of fluency in the English language has been an impediment to his achieving greater success. The partnership with Tucker, creates new comedic opportunities, and expands the fan base for each actor. Employing a similar formula, Chan would later team with Owen Wilson, in the action comedies Shanghai Noon (2000) and Shanghai Knights (2003).

This set is a great buy for casual fans of Tucker, Ratner, Chan, or the Rush Hour franchise, as you get four movies at a very low price. Unfortunately, the versions of Rush Hour 2 and Rush Hour 3, are stripped down with minimal bonus features. Serious Rush Hour fans, many want to consider either the Bluray edition of the films, or the Rush Hour: Three Film Collection, which features DVD editions of Rush Hour 2 and Rush Hour 3, that contain additional bonus features.

4.0 out of 5 stars What more do you want?, December 22, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 4 Film Favorites: Chris Tucker (Money Talks, Rush Hour, Rush Hour 2, Rush Hour 3) (DVD)
You see what 4 movies come in this package? Why are you reading reviews, you should order it already. Duh! Classic Rush Hour is worth the price alone, then you also get the second one which is almost as good, and the 3rd one which is definitely worth watching, but not as great as the first. Money Talks was a surprise! I hadn't seen this movie in years and it was surprisingly funny and action packed! All around, this is a great package, with a great price. Buy it for you, or someone you know. Comes on 2 disks, front and back of course. Quick shipment too.
