The Tuxedo


The Tuxedo

Cast: Jackie Chan, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jason Isaacs

Director: Kevin Donovan

Ka-pow! Jackie Chan high kicks his way onto the screen as Jimmy Tong, a cabbie who becomes an unwitting special agent.

There is only one rule when you work for playboy millionaire Clark Devlin: Never touch his prized tuxedo.  But when Devlin is temporarily put out of commission in an explosive "accident," Jimmy puts on the tux and soon discovers this extraordinary suit may be more black belt than black tie. 

Suddenly thrust into a dangerous world of espionage, and paired with a rookie partner (Jennifer Love Hewitt), Jimmy becomes an unwitting - if impeccably dressed - secret agent.

Throughout the 1980's and 1990's, Jackie Chan rose to international fame as an action star known for completing his own dangerous stunts.  With the massive success of 1998's Rush Hour, Chan wowed Western audiences with his sensational martial arts expertise.  Since then, the 51-year-old has become a bona fide Hollywood star.

"It's the kind of part I've never done before, and that is what made me want to do the movie," Chan says.  "The script was funny, and my character was interesting.  I wasn't playing a policeman, just an ordinary person - a taxi driver who becomes a kind of super spy because of a tuxedo that lets him do all kinds of special things."
