It was all right!
3 May 2007 | by (WILMINGTON, NC) – See all my reviews

Jackie Chan is at it again! In the movie "The Tuxedo", he's a chauffeur who ends up becoming a spy wannabe. Now being a spy isn't a easy job, you got to be fearless. No problem. But clueless, that's a problem. When the man he's chauffeuring is out of action, he steps up to the plate and takes his place. His partner Del Blaine(Jennifer Love Hewitt) has some type of issues in her. Very uptight, and so unwilling to open up, Jimmy Tong(Chan) does his little magic on her. The scenes are fantastic. The fight scenes are classic, and one when he encounters "The Godfather of Soul". Yep, it's James Brown! It's funny when he tells Tong to "enjoy the show". His suit takes him out accidentally. And the suit helped him do the moves J.B. does. I know that Jackie Chan is a little shy about his dance moves, but James Brown is a demanding individual. He wants the dance moves to be perfect. Of course when they did their scene together, J.B. says, "You're fast, but I'm faster!" In dancing yes, but martial arts? I don't think so! In real life J.B. did meet his match in the show business, but he's not jealous of J.C. Everyone in the movie deserve their spot in recognition. Jennifer Love Hewitt can kick butt too. Ever since "I Know What You Did Last Summer", she was tough. In "The Tuxedo" she kicked it up a notch. Great movie! 2.5 out of 5 stars!
