Trivia

When Del introduces Jimmy for his James Brown performance, she refers to him as "The Emperor of Soul. " This is somewhat of an ironic quip, as Emperor Penguins are the inspiration to the nickname for Tuxedos, "Penguin Suit." See more »

Goofs

When Delilah first visits the lab with Jimmy she's wearing a bustier beneath her dress; in subsequent scenes she isn't. Later during the fight in the lab she takes off her dress (not shown or explained on screen) and she is then wearing her petticoat and her bustier again. See more »

Mindless but hilarious entertainment
11 March 2007 | by (Sana'a, Yemen) – See all my reviews

I am surprised by how low rated this film is. Don't think. Just laugh.

Jackie Chan dryly pokes fun at action film clichés. He plays a non-hero, an unassuming regular guy who can't meet a girl, or do anything except drive, who gets sucked into a ridiculous situation.

Completely unbelievable and ridiculous. Not great cinema. All action movies are that way; this is funny because of the low-key irony.

Even Jennifer Love Hewitt seems deliberately miscast, but hilarious as she vacillates between superintelligent nerd, ditz, valley girl and superheroine.

We prefer this to Austin Powers with its completely over-the-top, zero subtlety. Here the sexual innuendo would not be missed by a teenager, but would go right over the head of kids, making it a film any age could enjoy. But you have to want to laugh, not critique.
