But fortunately he has become a big enough star for the film to be pulled off - but only justI won't try to sum up the plot, partly because it's be done by others already, and partly because it is so disjointed and skewed that it struggles to make any sense.

Anyway, after some more pointless scenes of hilarity and mischief, the suit is given to the bad guy, the CEO of a major Water company, and he becomes all powerful.

There was something confusing about the movie that I did't get.

If you haven't seen this movie yet, PLEASE don't waste your time!

I see that a lot of screenwriting hacks got fat paychecks on this unwatchable garbage.

I'm positive it's not as good as the rush hour movies (I haven't even seen them, but they look better than this), but it's entertaining.

I found the film to be predictable especially with 'James Brown' although the singing scene was very funny and kept me entertained...

Summary: Don't waste your time watching The Tuxedo- it sucks big time.

I mean, how intense can a car chase be when your hero is running from a remote controlled skateboard.

Four scriptwriters co-wrote the movie, and all what we watched was just some parties, old stereotypes, weak jokes, and dull sequences.

Jackie Chan is an entertainer, and "entertaining" an audience is what he does best.

Don't waste your money on it; it's really not worth it.

the tiresome water plot nearly dehydrates the rest of the film and leaves one looking to Chan and Love Hewitt's banter for a little refreshment.

However, even with the language barrier I found Chan's Hong Kong movies much funnier and much more entertaining, that the current lot that he is serving up.

i, of course, recommand this movie 2 EVERYONE; it's worth watching.

The biggest problem with the movie is that the storyline (even though it's juvenile) is extremely hard to follow.

The storyline was interesting and twisty, if a bit predictable complete with classic spy-type innovations.

Most people watch Jackie Chan because he does his own stunts, his stunts are excellent, and his movies are entertaining.

The magic tuxedo idea had potential (maybe not), but was let down by completely uninteresting scenes with awkward dialog and uninteresting action - even with Chan.

Although we are long-term fans of Jackie Chan, this movie was so dull that we left less than half-way through.

The relationship between Jimmy tong (Chan) and the girl at the gallery is predictable since the beginning, and you start to enjoy ever since he left the gallery, and he gets the job as the driver of Clark Devlin.

Adult men will definitely find her presence in the movie enjoyable, especially when the two are undercover at parties.

From the opening scene to the closing credits, this film keeps your adrenaline pumping and your laughter rolling.

aside, the movie itself was reasonably entertaining, in a pseudo-Bondlike way, and I was left with the impression that it parodied some of the earlier Bond films, Sean Connery's films in particular.

A very enjoyable movie.

Pretty entertaining, in an Americanized sort of way .

The Tuxedo, film starring the ever-so entertaining Jackie Chan and beautiful, seductive Jennifer Love Hewitt, is a bit of Rush Hour intermingled with Bondesque technology plus some of Jackie's "good' ole" martial arts action.

Its one of the worst movies i've ever seen!

A fun though only marginally entertaining flick as megabuck flicks go, this step backward for Chan is for Chan fans only.

Jackie Chan, while always visually stunning and frequently extremely funny, has lived to his fullest potential in this movie.

This means that you get a lot of well choreographed fighting and stunt scenes, unfortunately at the expense of an intriguing plot and story.

Well the movie is not fantastic, but it's enjoyable and the performances are actually good, Love Hewitt was solid on her character, and Jackie Chan was good too.

I know Jackie is getting older, but 'New Police Story' had a fair share of wire work, and it managed to be entertaining.

Fairly Dull .

When I watched this movie, I found the beginning to be confusing because I didn't realize the point of the movie until the movie got going, which took some time.

Both enjoyed it and the sex content was low so nothing to explain to the 8 year old.

Though not great cinema, I found it highly entertaining which was it's intention.

All in all, not quite as good as previous Jackie Chan movies, but an entertaining way to spend a couple of hours.

Video rental for a very slow night.

In conclusion, great movie which I found far more entertaining than many movies this year.

Great fun, enjoyable.......

The plot does fail (or never really tries), the acting is horrible (both Chan and Love Hewitt), the dialogue is trite.

Strictly second-rate and erratically uneven, "The Tuxedo" qualifies as an occasionally clever but more often clumsy spy comedy that wastes more time on its formulaic plot instead of the star's superb athletic talents.

I'm also tired of the old, old cliche that putting a pair of glasses on a Barbie doll turns her into an unattractive braniac, so that has something to do with my annoyance with her as well.

Just like "Pearl Harbor" with it's aerial attack sequence, "The tuxedo" is worth watching only to see Jackie Chan doing the James Brown.

It's definitely not Jackie's best work, but at least it's quite entertaining.

Granted some scenes are entertaining, even if the setup of a "super-tux" is just plain silly.

The best it could have hoped for was a bit of fun and frankly, I got bored.

I very much hope that the man can continue to work on good scripts such as Rush Hour and leave behind the non-comical, formulaic scripts such as the Tuxedo that seem to have been written while on the toilet seat.

The bad guy's plan is so contrived, so ridiculous, so stupid, so irrelevant that I felt physically bad for Jackie in this film.

Jackie has always made entertaining movies with his blend of slapstick, physical movements and of course the martial arts that he performs so well (maybe second only to Jet Li).

Final confrontation between starring and the baddies is breathtaking and astounding .

I left the theater disappointed because I saw a really bad action movie.

Rating : 5,5/10 nice and entertaining .

Another entertaining film from Jackie Chan.

So I have a certain tolerance for films like "Rumble in the Bronx" that have no plot or character depth whatsoever, as long as there's plenty of action and some comedy.

Hollywood has finally dragged Jackie down to their level.

But this is a enjoyable piece of fluff that will entertain as long as you don't think about it too much.

this movie, like a slap in the face, is unexpected, unwarranted, and somewhat painful.

Of course this was a live action cartoon, and the situations were silly, but I found it very entertaining overall.

The climax of the film, which should be exciting, is just a mish-mash of poor plot exposition, dumb ideas, and far too much footage of Miss Hewitt, who thinks she can get away with going around and insulting Jackie for most of the film.

The film is badly paced, with a lot of rushed and slow spots that dispand from any more believability the film could have had, and the direction is bland.

Jennifer Love Hewitt is stunning throughout the movie.

This is another underrated Jackie Chan film, that i enjoyed quite a bit, with fun performances all around and i highly recommend it!.

Very Silly, But Fun & Fast-Moving .

Jason Issacs brief Bond-like Clark Devlin appearance also proves very entertaining and is much too short-lived.

`The Tuxedo' is a comedy of almost unimaginable badness, easily the worst movie Jackie Chan has ever made.

Everything about this film is trite, recycled and dumbed-down to the lowest common denominator.

Barring a few funny moments, it was bland and left a bad taste in the mouth.

) but some is entertaining.

Honestly, I did not stick around to watch the ending of "The Tuxedo," I had to walk out of the theater (which is something I never do).

What to say about this 2 hour ultimate boring stuff.

It's too formulaic, too 'let's make a quick buck'.

The first act is hugely enjoyable in fact; consistently laugh-out-loud funny.

While some of his more recent films can be forgiven, this one tends to be one of his duller and less satisfying moments.

Kids will enjoy the juvenille humor bits, while adults will yawn and smirk at times.

jennifer is absolutely STUNNING & of course funny in it.

(And you can also wait for the third movie in the tiresome "Rush Hour" franchise.

Some laughs, good action, and a quick pace make this an enjoyable diversion.

*Yawn* .

For one, the very entertaining scene where he imitates James Brown, doing the foot moves and shaking his ass was one of the FUNNIEST scenes of the movie; something he wouldn't have been able to have done without the pretext of the Tuxedo.

Overall an enjoyable movie that is fast paced and funny.

The humor isn't very good, either, with relentlessly predictable jokes ("nice rack") and an astonishingly digressive segment involving Chan performing like James Brown, which is cringe-worthy, to say the least.

I rate this 1 out of 10, the equivalent to "a true waste of time and money"

This was the worst movie I have seen in a long, long time.

A true waste of time and money .

The story itself is a disjointed mess, jumping from scene to scene without sense or logic.

As with all of Jackie's recent(ish) American films, wirework threatens to render this one unwatchable.

Jason Isaacs is given a very bland role and not even he with his great charisma can prevent his character from being dull and totally uninteresting.

These movies become predictable, with the same style of repetitive action.

" This movie just seemed dull and uniteresting.

The sexual innuendo is redundant and tiresome to listen to.

I started watching 'The Tuxedo' bearing in mind that I'd heard from Jackie fans and Jackie haters alike that 'The Tuxedo' was one of the worst movies ever.

The one positive thing I'll say is that it often looks stunning.

Instead, expect long stretches of dumbness and boredom.


Terrible and boring, nice cinematography.

Most of the movie plays out rather limply, though entertaining enough in a sort of TV-dinner way.

This hour and a half (or so) of movie was more entertaining than most of last years efforts, i`m looking in your direction Minority Report!

Firstly you can tell that this has been a cut-and-paste job from all of the other Jackie Chan fish-out-of-water Hollywood movies, therefore the film just feels pointless, whimsical and boring.

Rush Hour was fine, and I was glad to see Jackie finally get some recognition here in the States but everything from that point on has been darn near unwatchable.

a FUN movie that worth watching .

Instead, I was bored silly and almost infuriated by the countless stream of sex jokes that we've heard and seen over and over again.

Formulaic Jackie Chan movie lives up to previous films.

At first it seemed that she and Jackie Chan would be a good match, specially in Hewitt's first fight scene, but from there on she went from dull to duller.

the tuxedo is an action comedy starring jackie chan yes, but anybody expecting an action packed stunt fest like his other movies are going to be dissopionted, as there isn't much action at all, and what few stunts there are, are all wire work and cgi.

This movie does not let him do those fancy moves, instead where are left with very cliche lines and a dumb plot.

Another entertaining film from Jackie Chan .

delightful, refreshing and entertaining .

Overall i highly recommend it!.

So much so,her character becomes completely unbearable.

it sets out to be an entertaining movie, and in the end that's what it is.

This movie is a waste of time.

Chan really did not do anything, and the movie plot was very cliche.

bland Chan supported by a pretty face - again .

I left the theater somewhat puzzled, because I didn't see a Jackie Chan movie.

It's certainly a fast-moving 99 minutes and there's nothing wrong with that.

Waste of my time .

Lack of plot, lack of Jackie .
