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 »

Love Hewitt
26 September 2012 | by ebiros2See all my reviews

I like this movie now more than when I first saw it.

The movie is really a mixture of Hong Kong style action with Hollywood style production. And it has Jackie Chan style humor that goes with it.

When this movie was made Jennifer Hewitt was still a relative unknown, and it seemed odd that she was Jackie Chan's sidekick. She kind of lacked the softness or sexiness of a woman at the time, and didn't soften the touch of the team. But now she's well known, and it's much easier to pick out her signature style of being the "Brain".

It's amazing to see Jackie Chan mimicking the move that's supposedly the work of the "Tuxedo". Human Jackie Chan is making the tuxedo look like it's making the human Jackie Chan move like super human.

Maybe teaming Jennifer Hewitt with Jackie Chan was bit experimental at the time, but after a decade, I can see how beautifully this movie is made, and how interesting the action is with Jackie and Jennifer as a team.
