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

A generally joyless affair thanks to a script by committee and a director with no grasp of Chan's work and no feel for this sort of comedy.
| Original Score: 2/5

I patiently waited for the credits and then ran for the exit.

The movie is silly beyond comprehension, and even if it weren't silly, it would still be beyond comprehension.

During The Tuxedo's 90 minutes of screen time, there isn't one true 'Chan moment'.

Four words I didn't plan on saying: Bring back Chris Tucker!

A cute idea, miserably executed.

One man kills another - again, we won't specify who - by throwing a bug inside the other's mouth. Granted, it's a poison bug, but still...

Hewitt and Chan lack anything sensual at all. It's like a Powerpuff girl talking to a Pikachu.

September 27, 2002
Idiotic plotting to annoy grown-ups; smutty comedy that'll confuse kids. Who, exactly, is this movie for?

September 26, 2002
A mechanical action-comedy whose seeming purpose is to market the charismatic Jackie Chan to even younger audiences.

One of the worst movies of the year.

Chops up the action so we never get a clear view of Chan doing that voodoo he do do so well (or did do, in his Hong Kong films).
| Original Score: 1.5/4

Matinee Magazine
October 27, 2002
With a story that would be right at home in a lame-brained Rob Schneider comedy, the film seems to have been spit out by some sort of devious Hollywood assembly line.

October 2, 2002
A confused film that aspires to be a superhero flick, screwball comedy and martial arts movie all at once.

It's drab. It's uninteresting. It squanders Chan's uniqueness; it could even be said to squander Jennifer Love Hewitt!
Clint Morris
October 2, 2002
Much like the Jim Carrey movie The Mask, it's all bells and whistles and no plot here.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

Not only does it squander most of [Jackie Chan's] assets, but it provides very little to distract us from the waste.
