Rush Hour (1998)

Angry chief: Captain William Diel (Philip Baker Hall)
Angriest quote: “It's a disgrace to me! It's a disgrace to my department!”
Anger level: About an eight.
Possible HR issues: Subjecting Jackie Chan’s Hong Kong cop to Los Angeles irritant James Carter (Chris Tucker) may not be in the spirit of international co-operation.
Health problems? A serious case of buddycomedyitis.
Badge and/or gun taken? Worse: he takes the Red Heat approach and gives Tucker a partner who doesn’t understand his banter.

He may look like he’s in his sixties but if we were to tell you that Captain Diel (Philip Baker Hall) is actually 31, you’d probably believe us, knowing what working with Chris Tucker’s motormouthed cop can do to man’s complexion. You can virtually see new wrinkles forming on his forehead as Carter (Tucker) spitballs yet another comedy riff. Sure, crime is rife in the City of Angels but no-one’s getting arrested until Carter’s finished his schtick. No wonder Diel looks like a man on the verge of an aneurysm.
