Jackie Chan and Jennifer Love Hewitt???
Mr. JKW | Honolulu, Hawai'i | 10/28/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"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 cameo2. The bedroom scene3. Jennifer Love getting all "Kung Fu" on the bad guys. "Yeah!!!"THINGS TO WATCH OUT FORThe movie overall is fairly tame with very mild violence but there are a few "gross out" scenes courtesy of some bugs and a few particular gross "death scenes." Overall though, there's nothing that should give you nightmares or upset you.THE VERDICT:Overall, some long time Chan fans may feel deprived that the action levels not where you've come to expect it but the action levels still acceptable and nothing to sneeze at. This can safely be chalked up as more "comedy-action" than "action-comedy" which isn't really a bad thing.Overall, it's still an enjoyable movie to unwind with the gang or your loved one.Recommended"
Dumb, but a lot of fun!

"Action star Jackie Chan has recently expressed an interest in moving away from stunts and kung fu, and more towards dramatic roles. The thinking here is sensible and not unexpected. Chan is a bit past it to continue the jaw-dropping stunts and fights that he's famous for, and has accepted the enevitable fact that retirement must one day come.Here, Chan gives us a few impressive fights and stunts, but mostly he plays a character part, in keeping with his new career direction. Taking the place of his injured super-spy boss, Clark Devlin, Chan takes on the bad guys in Devlin's place. Along the way, he hooks up with another agency spy (Jennifer Love Hewitt), who falls in love with him. The bad guys are planning to corner the world's bottled water supply using a very unlikely method, and Chan must use Devlin's impressive super-spy tuxedo to stop them.Oh, it was dumb, no question about it. But, regardless, I just plain liked it anyway. There was a lot of slapstick, and for some reason, a lot of non-PC humor. Frankly, it was just plain funny.Probably the best thing here is the Clark Devlin character. Devlin is the perfect Bond-ish agent; suave, sophisticated, irresistable to women, and super-cool. In fact, it makes one long to see actor Jason Issacs play 007 for real in a new Bond film (sorry, Pierce).While this would be just fine as a renter, I think you should try to catch it in the theater if possible. Dumb or not, it was a fun movie, and it may be interesting for Chan fans to see a sampling of the new direction the actor/stuntman/martial artist is trying to grow in."
IF THE TUX FITS

"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?"
