When Del (Jennifer Love Hewitt) introduces Jimmy (Jackie Chan) 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 »

I think Jackie Chan movies are cool. They have great action with humor, and normally a good plot. This movie is a disappointment. It didn't have enough action, badly scripted humor, and the plot is beyond stupid.The concept of Jackie Chan being a tuxedo-clad super hero is silly and wierd. The idea of the villain poisoning the town's water supply with water striders is lame. Also, if I have to listen to Jackie Chan's rude partner(Jinnifer Love Hewett) complain,I'm going to scream.She was very pretty, but not likeable at all.When I was watching this movie, I felt like Jackie falling off that water tower. Very painful to watch.
