The Jackie Chan hit The Tuxedo comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that fails to preserve the original theatrical aspect ratio of the film. English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1, while a French soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital 5.1 as well. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by director Kevin Donovan, deleted scenes, a making-of featurette, a featurette concerning the development of the stunt scenes, and the theatrical trailer. This is a fine disc for what it is, but the same extras are available on a different edition that also carries a widescreen transfer. That version is superior to this one.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
James Bond-inspired gadgetry runs amok in this delightful send-up of spy movies, an appealing pastiche of goofy gags and spectacular stunt sequences that shows Jackie Chan at his high-spirited best. He portrays Jimmy Tong, the personable but barely competent chauffeur of debonair secret agent Clark Devlin (The Patriot’s Jason Isaacs), who is currently trying to market a chemical that turns water into a dehydrating agent. When Devlin is seriously injured in an assassination attempt, Jimmy take the superspy’s place and appropriates his most formidable asset: a $2 million tuxedo outfitted with enough sophisticated, miniaturized weaponry to destroy a small country. Rather improbably, Jimmy is mistaken for the enigmatic Devlin by nearly everybody with whom he comes into contact, including fellow agent Del Blaine (Jennifer Love Hewitt). Chan has used this mistaken-identity gambit before to good effect, and it works quite well here. Much of the humor derives from Jimmy Tong’s inability to master the various features of his versatile evening wear, and director Kevin Donovan rates kudos for the inventive sight gags he deploys with such facility. Hewitt is a bit shrill at times, but her girlish enthusiasm makes her a good foil for the hyperkinetic star. And, of course, Jackie’s signature stunt sequences are very much in evidence; nearing the age of 50, he shows no signs of slowing down. Airy, fast moving, and funny, this Tuxedo is absolutely seamless. The DVD includes a terrific assortment of bloopers, a mini-documentary about the staging of stunts, an HBO behind-the-scenes featurette, and commentary by director Donovan.
