MONEY TALKS Chris Tucker, Charlie Sheen (1997, New Line, R, $104.99) Ticket scalper Tucker (Jackie Brown) teams with Sheen’s steely newsman to foil some francophone jewel thieves. The film’s got style: a score by Mission: Impossible themester Lalo Schifrin, flashy action scenes (subdued on the small screen), and a limber leading con man. But all such salt-and-pepper flicks turn on the notion that two outmoded stereotypes can arrive at detente by colluding in wacky high jinks. And as long as that pap supplants characterization, can’t we all just get along without them? C-
