Critic Consensus: Chan is as charming as ever, but his talents are squandered by special effects and bad writing.

A cute idea, miserably executed.

Common Sense Media

Chan often looks as tired as the script, and as bored as the viewing audience.

Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker? Great. Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson? Cool. Jackie Chan and... Jennifer Love Hewitt? What the f**k?

Full Review… | December 28, 2008

The Tuxedo is sort of like a film that might have been made from a song by Burt Bacharach; its central conceit is odd, implausible, even a bit silly, but one can hardly begrudge it those elements when the thing plays so beautifully.

... The Tuxedo is an amusing diversion.

Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)

Both Chan and Hewitt need to have some serious talks with their agents.

Oh wow, why? Why?! I don't even know if this warrants a review. It's like Spy Kids 2 meets Jackie Chan meets... severe overproduction. Who, in their right mind, thought this would be a good idea when it was pitched? Seriously.

If It weren't for Jackie Chan this would be a horrible film, the script is pretty bad and Jennifer Love Hewwit is just annoying. It does however raise a few laughs which make it almost worthwhile.
