This tuxedo is barely worth renting
25 March 2003 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

This movie is occasionally funny if you don't get bogged down in trying to figure out the plot holes. Jennifer Love Hewitt is attractive and charming, but absolutely nothing her character does makes sense. Is she a secret agent, a secret double agent, or a secret triple agent? Does she have a sly sense of humor or is she merely tolerating someone else's sexist humor? Is she a skilled martial combatant or an incredible lucky newbie? The script never makes any of this clear. It's like this movie was written to make her look stupid (attractive, but stupid).

Jackie Chan's moves are entertaining, but as an action flick this is probably one of his worst. The problem is that in the story he's wearing a near-magical tuxedo that gives him superhuman powers. Instead of knowing that everything you see is Jackie busting his butt doing his own stunts, you're watching special effects ginned up with wires, blue screen, and computer enhancement. It's more like watching a Superman movie than a Jackie Chan flick.

Overall I'd give this movie a 3/10. Watching it is better than doing nothing for 90 minutes, as long as you're not paying much for the privilege.
