Clothes make the superspy in this high-energy action comedy. 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.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Chan's worst Hollywood film to date."
‑ Ernest Hardy, L.A. Weekly
"This overproduced and generally disappointing effort isn't likely to rouse the Rush Hour crowd."
‑ Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
"A cute idea, miserably executed."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"... The Tuxedo is an amusing diversion."
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
"This film could have been for Chan what The Mask was for Jim Carrey. Unfortunately, it will be more like what Leonard Part 6 was for Bill Cosby."
‑ Nick Rogers, State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)
"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."
‑ Ed Park, Village Voice
"This movie is about the worst thing Chan has done in the United States."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker? Great. Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson? Cool. Jackie Chan and... Jennifer Love Hewitt? What the f**k?"
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Both Chan and Hewitt need to have some serious talks with their agents."
‑ Josh Bell, Las Vegas Weekly
"Chan's ballet-like martial arts moves don't disappoint, and his nice-guy, fun-loving attitude is highly contagious."
‑ Tyler Hanley, Palo Alto Weekly
"One of the worst movies of the year."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"It's drab. It's uninteresting. It squanders Chan's uniqueness; it could even be said to squander Jennifer Love Hewitt!"
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"The Tuxedo is sort of like a film that might have been made from a song by Burt Bacharach; its central conceit is odd, implausible, even a bit silly, but one can hardly begrudge it those elements when the thing plays so beautifully."
‑ Todd Gilchrist, IGN Movies
"Apesar de Jackie Chan ser sempre simpático, não há uma única coreografia de luta interessante ao longo de todo o filme, o que é decepcionante. Além disso, Hewitt está insuportável."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"...Only marginally funny at its best."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
