    Wall Street Journal Joe Morgenstern

    In a truly terrible action adventure called The Tuxedo, a high-tech monkey suit turns Jackie Chan into an all-powerful cyborg, and will turn you into a boredborg.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

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

    ReelViews James Berardinelli

    You know you're in trouble when 50% of the running length is devoted to plot exposition, and the movie still doesn't make any sense.

    Chicago Tribune Michael Wilmington

    A breakthrough for karate comedy king Chan, but not necessarily the kind we've all been waiting and hoping for. It's an ultra-digitized DreamWorks show crammed with elaborate special effects, the kind that physical-stunt specialist Chan has always avoided.

    Entertainment Weekly Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Chan needs a foil, and Hewitt, while perky, doesn't project nearly enough comedy weight; she's too slight and tailored for his style.

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

Iffy for 12+

A cute idea, miserably executed.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has crude humor and gross violence. There are some vulgar sexual references. Characters drink and smoke (there is an anti-smoking joke). Del uses her cleavage to get past a security guard, and both spies pretend to romance people to find out what they are hiding.

  • Families can talk about the different kinds of courage. Jimmy is very brave about some things but not about others. What are you brave about? What do you find harder to be brave about?
