Overview

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. 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. The Tuxedo marked the feature-film debut for director Kevin Donovan, who had previously won international acclaim for his work in television commercials.

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.
