A man who teaches dateless wonders how to become irresistible to women learns just how hard it can be to do it yourself in this romantic comedy. When a guy in New York City wants to make the right impression with a certain lady, Alex "Hitch" Hitchens (Will Smith) is the man he calls. Hitch has made a career out of coordinating a man's first three dates so that they'll show him to his best advantage (for a price, of course), and more than a few have taken women to the altar they first started courting with Hitch's help. But Hitch discovers his own romantic limitations when he falls for Sara (Eva Mendes), a journalist who has her own ideas about romance, and might just expose Hitch's underground business to the world. In the midst of all this, Hitch has his hands full with Albert, a sweet but socially inept man who has enlisted Hitch's services. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Cheerful, lo-cal entertainment. Will Smith's intelligence is a saving grace, Adam Arkin is an asset to any comedy, and Kevin James was surprisingly appealing. As usual in Hollywood fare, we root for schlubby guys wooing beautiful women; the formula wouldn't work in reverse unless the women could become beautiful with 10-15 minutes of makeover. But it's a nice formula anyway, and the script is amusing.

There's a "hitch" here by talltale June 7, 2005 - 5:10 AM PDT

Occasionally, a film appears that makes me realize all over again that I must be living in some alternate universe. This year it's HITCH--which I gave up on after an hour. This movie is made for our current times: promising wonderful things while lying through its teeth from the outset. The premise--getting men to be completely other than they are in order to land the woman of their dreams--is a one-way ticket to disaster as far as any real relationship is concerned.

Sure, this is a "mainstream" romantic comedy, but you need to be awfully dumbed-down to buy into something so wrongheaded. Will Smith and Kevin James are occasional fun, though the women here take a decidedly back seat (Mendes seems to be confusing attitude with acting chops; the Ellis Island scene is silly, sentimental and finally embarrassing). There are some cute touches, but sixty minutes into this drivel, heading back to the daily grind seemed like a pleasure.
