Default Chris Tucker: Why?

Wuh-wuh-why hasn't he done anything? Why are his last 3 movies Rush Hours? How can he be worth 20 million + for his movies when he's only done 10? I can't comprehend any of it. Why the fu ck wouldn't he do more work? I know, I know, family...blah blah...doesn't need the money...blah blah...But this gets me as much as the lack of a Cuba G. comeback.

I'm sorry...this is a ****ty rant, but does no one else wonder why Tucker doesn't do more? This guy neeeeeds a late night TV show.

The Rush Hour trilogy earned almost $250m profit (3 broke even apparently). He's a big reason why. I don't think it's THAT crazy that he makes a quarter of that profit. Now if he gets $20m for ANY role, that's different.

Default Re: Chris Tucker: Why?

there is a rumor that he cant read very well (which I find hard to believe) and thats why he has done few movies and usually works with Brett Ratner.

his next flick is going to be Mr. S: My Life with Frank Sinatra directed by..... Brett Ratner

He earned so big for the Rush Hour movies because they were cash machines, and he was a big part of the box office draw

He doesn't do a lot of movies because he takes his millions and spends his time doing charity work in Africa

Dearest Theo:

My lack of money and continued failure has driven my dear Sien to prostitution. Oh, how I cannot bear to see her in this state! I fear I will give in to father's wishes and abandon her and our child. It pains my soul, but I feel that with time, the torment will subside in us both.

It is a dark day that has dawned in the calendar of my life. I am forever grateful to have you with me, dearest Theo. I hope to move soon to Drenthe, when I am able. I hear the summers are beautiful and the women are bountiful and rather tart! Oh, won't you join me? What wonderful paintings I shall make, there, in Drenthe!

Chris Tucker is an underrated actor. He might not be Al Pacino but he carries the Rush Hour's, and he carried Friday. Thats why Friday 2 was way worse, no Smokie Mike Epp's isn't in his league.

They love him in asia. He can do Michael Jackson and they love that **** over there. Anyways considering how much he does in the movies he's done, he deserves most of the money paid to their casts.
