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.

Chan's ballet-like martial arts moves don't disappoint, and his nice-guy, fun-loving attitude is highly contagious.

The charisma of Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jackie Chan elevates an otherwise run-of-the-mill film into enjoyable entertainment.

If it weren't for the likeability of Jackie Chan and his inventive, acrobatic, larger than life and entertaining martial arts prowess, a film like The Tuxedo would be a minor disaster.

A keeper, for its humor, its action, its hint of romance -- and its too-brief cameo by the great James Brown.

There's nothing like an "underdog battles against all odds to conquer evil" story, especially when said underdog is partnered with something as sinfully delicious as Jennifer Love Hewitt.

While this is a fun film, and is certainly worth a matinee, [Chan's] beginning to get a bit tired. See it anyway.

On the whole, The Tuxedo is a great piece of entertainment.

Jackie Chan is probably too old and too westernized at this point to make a pure Jackie Chan film (as if Hollywood would let him) -- but he still knows how to entertain.

The Tuxedo is good goofy fun. Do not attempt to apply logic or reason to it.

Several good laughs, some enjoyably ridiculous action sequences, a good pace, and decent chemistry between Jackie Chan and Jennifer Love Hewitt.

Deftly plotted genre shenanigans... an attractive piece of evening wear.

If it's not all that Jackie can be, it's an amusing 90 minutes of family-oriented action.

As an actor, [Chan] does stretch a bit.

Critics and cynics will probably beat up on this flick, but if you go just wanting to be entertained, that's what you'll get.

It's 'leave your brain at home' entertainment that works for what it aspires to be.
