Martial arts master, Jackie Chan and his leading lady, Jennifer Love Hewitt star in the action-comedy, The Tuxedo. Check out Kidzworld's movie review to see if The Tuxedo is worth the hype and your allowance bling-bling.

No lie! This has truly been my cinematic summer of discontent. Followed closely by disbelief and disgust. So, after all the disappointment, I was hoping to end the season on a big screen high. But alas... it was not meant to be.

The Tuxedo, starring Jackie Chan and Jennifer Love Hewitt, starts off with a deer peeing in a stream. From there, the pee and the movie, quickly head down the drain.

The story (mad British guy plans to poison/alter world's water supply using armies of water striders so people will be forced to drink his bottled H2O,) just doesn't hold water. Didn't anyone, during the early drafts of this script, ever say "Hey, but won't, like, all the animals, plants and things die because they don't carry cash or credit cards to buy the bottled stuff?"

Anyway, after evil skate boys (you know who you are) injure his suave, super spy boss, Jackie puts on the Tuxedo, which turns out to be equipped with martial arts smarts, weapons and groovy dance moves. That's more than you need to know. The world's water supply is saved, Jennifer Love Hewitt does NOT get BareNaked and for a Jackie Chan action film, there really wasn't any.

Each and every week the people who produce TV shows like Buffy, Angel and Gilmore Girls manage to provide better action scenes and dialogue than all of this summer's series of over-inflated movie messes.

Before the studios get started on next summer's releases of sequels and prequels, maybe they should try starting with something unique and new - like a good story.

And The Tuxedo, from the opening credits to its all too Jackie outtakes, is disheveled.

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
