  • In THE TUXEDO, Jackie Chan stars as Jimmy Tong, a taxi driver who's aggressive behind the wheel, but painfully shy outside of his cab. Jimmy's driving talents garner the attention of a secret organization, and soon he's hired as the chauffeur for the suave, enigmatic agent Clark Devlin (Jason Isaacs). However, when Devlin is severely injured in an assassination attempt, Jimmy must don Devlin's suit--which just happens to be a state-of-the-art, two-billion-dollar weapon loaded with special capabilities and gadgets. Paired up with ambitious but inexperienced agent Del Blaine (Jennifer Love Hewitt), Jimmy must continue Devlin's mission, which involves foiling Dietrich Banning (Ritchie Coster), a power-mad bottled-water mogul.
    Kevin Donovan's action-packed comedy gives the talented Chan an unusual opportunity to play a character not adept at martial arts. Of course, once he puts on the tuxedo, he's capable of amazing physical feats, but Chan revels in hamming it up as someone who's literally not in control of his actions. Meanwhile, Hewitt provides catty support, and Isaacs (the villain in THE PATRIOT) makes the most of his good-guy role. A goofy Bond-ish romp, THE TUXEDO also features Debi Mazar as a tough secret agent and Peter Stormare as a nerdy mad scientist.
