Language And Conflict In the Movies: Rush Hour 3

The character played by Chris Tucker has learned Chinese since Rush Hour 2.  Unfortunately for him, the first person with a distinctly Asiatic appearance that he gets to question... speaks only French.

I like movies if they explain something important, after all, it is so much easier to watch a movie than read a book.  I always point to Wild River, 196?, as an example of a movie which really deals with eminent domain.  I've got several movies which illustrate language issues, I'll bring them up over time.
