About the Movie
Jimmy Tong (Jackie Chan) is a well-meaning but clumsy New York City cab driver who is tapped by Steena (Debi Mazar), associate to multi-millionaire Clark Devlin (Jason Isaacs), for a new job as Devlin's personal limo driver. After a mysterious accident lands Devlin in the hospital, Tong learns that his new boss has a secret — when he's not wheeling and dealing in high finance, Devlin is also a secret agent for the CSA, a top-level security agency. The secret to Devlin's success as a spy is his trademark tuxedo, a suit which is loaded with special gadgets which turns him into a high-tech fighting machine. After Tong dons the tuxedo and is transformed into a martial arts master, he takes over for Devlin and discovers that the agent's injuries didn't happen by accident. As Tong tries to chase down a handful of international super-villains bent on world conquest, he has to deal with Devlin's new partner, Del Blaine (Jennifer Love Hewitt), a CSA rookie who is just as baffled by her new assignment as Tong.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: For the first time in Chan's glorious career, credits for various fx-oriented skills far outnumber those for stunts and fight choreography, always in the past the beating, thumping heart of every Chan movie.
Rotten: Some hack makes a beer commercial and winds up trashing Jackie Chan.
Rotten: The only possible surprise in The Tuxedo would be an extended demonstration of what was once Chan's trademark, the daffily choreographed kineticism forbidden of late by either his own age or the scruples of story editors.
Rotten: It is a measure of the screenwriters' laziness that Brown's impromptu aside to Chan during the obligatory closing-credits outtakes sequence turns out to be the wittiest one-liner in the whole picture.
finally but where is shanghai noon !!!??? I've been wanting to buy for years now !!
The Tuxedo - about time.
I have been waiting for this one for a while. I can appreciate why it did so poorly on the tomato-meter; however, this is actually a pretty sweet (charming) movie despite some predictable-but fun-action sequences. I won't say more about that b/c it'd be a spoiler. :-)
Funny and action packed the way Jackie does it. A must see!
