The Tuxedo is a very enjoyable, funny movie.
Terry R. Reynolds
I guess I just couldn't get past the idea of a Tuxedo that can do anything...It seemed like Inspector Gadget.
Daniel V. Reilly
It's one of the bad movies starring Jackie Chan.

*SYNOPSIS* ~ Jackie Chan plays Jimmy Tong, your average ordinary type of cab driver; though a talented 'speedy' driver, he still has his own problems, including a puppy love crush on a woman he can't even talk to! But things change drastically when a mysterious woman (Debi Mazar) offers him a job he simply cannot refuse. The job: chaffeuring for a Clark Devlin (Jason Isaacs) with whom he isn't allowed to speak to! Fortunately, the two hit off and become good friends. But things of course aren't as they seem. Devlin is almost killed by an assassination attempt, Jimmy Tong is suddenly thrust into the espionage world with the beautiful but quick-tongued Del Blaine (Jennifer Love Hewitt) as a partner and the millionaire Diedrich Banning (Ritchie Coster) as the evil nemesis. And of course there's that tuxedo that Devlin tells Tong to wear...
*PLOT* ~ All right, you've heard it all before. Your-average-ordinary-fellow is strangely pulled into a plot to save the world from the clutches of a man-who-plans-to-take-over-the-world-by-some-diabolical-means. And there's the beautiful-yet-acid-tongued-co-agent. You've heard it before? I'd be surprised if you haven't! The hollywood world certainly has used this basic plot numerous times. But the movie isn't all negative. The whole plot surrounding the 'tuxedo' is pretty cool! I mean, think about it! A suit you put on that can practically have you do ANYTHING! Fight, do gymnastics, dance, light a cigarette... you name it, the suit does it for you (think Inspector Gadget)!
*ACTING* ~ Jackie Chan is as always sweet and charming to watch on the screen. The very first scene he appears in where he tries to talk to 'the girl of his dreams' is especially cute. And OF COURSE his fighting always pleases!

THE TUXEDO is an entertaining, over the top, gimmicky and sometimes preposterous action movie. But it completely entertained me for its length and I think Jackie Chan and Jennifer Love Hewitt had a workable chemistry that buoyed the movie's flaws. The opening shot of the deer peeing in the water is great, knowing that this so called clear mountain water is going to make it to the grocery stores. The tuxedo itself is a great gimmick, letting us see a normally graceful Chan become an awkward slave to its many devices. Peter Stormare has a great cameo as the looney scientist who concocts the plot to poison the world's water supply, and Jason Isaacs, Debi Mazar and Richie Coster all do their parts well, although Isaacs and Mazar are criminally underused. But this is Jackie's movie---silly, some great fight sequences and most of all, an entertaining 90 minutes. What more could you ask for?

Martial arts action superstar Jackie Chan returns to the big screen in "The Tuxedo" alongside the super-hot, 18-36 male demographic attracting, Jennifer Love Hewitt in this "Alfred turned Batman/James Bond" type action flick.
THE STORY:
Chan plays Jimmy Tong, an NYC cab driver turned super-spy chauffeur/sidekick. When Tong's boss, super-spy Clark Devlin, goes down, Tong's "Alfred" assumes Devlin's "Batman" role and becomes the unlikely hero trying to stop the insidious plot of an eco-terrorist. Jennifer Love Hewitt co-stars as Chan's partner, new CSA field agent/scientist nerd chick, Del Blaine.
THE COOL STUFF:
Though Chan, self-admittedly, is getting up in age and can't quite pull-off the death-defying stunts he used to, the action in this movie is still enough to make this movie enjoyable though hardcore Chan action fans may be a little disappointed.
With the action not quite as big a focus this movie turns up the notches on the "story" element and the "humor" element. The storyline in this film is definitely more developed than a lot of Chan's older flicks imported from Asia (ie - Rumble in the Bronx, First Strike and Mr. Nice Guy).
The pairing of Chan and Love Hewitt (which sounds like as about as unlikely a couple as you could ever get) is really effective and I enjoyed how they managed to play off each other. They had good chemistry. You ain't seen nothing until you've seen Jennifer Love kicking some bad guy booty (and looking GOOD at the same time).
Tons of special effects (including the now standard "Matrix" FX) abound courtesy of Chan's "Tuxedo" which is the source of his power.
BEST SCENES:
1. "The Last Emperor" of Soul including James Brown cameo
2. The bedroom scene
3. Jennifer Love getting all "Kung Fu" on the bad guys.

The Tuxedo is a very enjoyable, funny movie. The writing, acting, effects, etc. are all top-notch. For some reason, the critics that I read came down on this one. The movie did what it was supposed to. It entertained me. It kept me thouroughly engrosssed in the story from beginning to end, and laughing a lot, too.

The basic plot is already well described, so I won't repeat it here.

For parents: There is little of what I would call gratuitous sex. Yes, Jennifer used her charms to distract a bad guy or two. And, the bad guy's girlfriend tried to seduce Jackie Chan. However, I saw little that was truely offensive. There was some violence, as it is an action-adventure. But, the violence was quite tame for such a movie, and they tamed it without reducing the action.

For the rest: If you are looking for a movie to be profoundly affected, pass it up. If you want to be entertained for a couple of hours, go for it. You won't be disappointed. There is a lot of action and humor, and the story is unique.
