Rush Hour (1998)

A sweet young Asian girl has been kidnapped and James (Chris Tucker) has interjected himself in the case with the FBI. James is on the phone with the kidnapper and he says “we want 50 million dollars,” James yells in the phone, “50 million dollars, who do you think you got, Chelsea Clinton.”

Oriental Baby Back Ribs and Rice is inspired by Rush Hour’s blend of oriental spice and soulful ribs. Just like are guys James and Lee. This dish is the very best of both worlds. Enjoy!
