Works as a capsule -- a snapshot -- of what American metropolitan dating has become: a game of social defense.

Hitch will make dorky, husky guys like Kevin James and myself feel some hope that we too can date women who look like models

With it's share of Jerry Maguire moments mixed with real romance corn, Hitch is well worth the date.

Enjoyable romantic comedy that is sharply written and frequently laugh-out-loud funny, thanks to a hilarious performance by supporting actor Kevin James.

A full 120 minutes dedicated to the hilarious comic notion that white people can't dance (hee, hee - it's funny because it's true, we're so lame!)

Merely cute when it could be affecting, pleasant when it could be relevant.

Reminds us, sweetly, charmingly, and humorously, what Will Smith used to be like before he became an overnight action sensation.

While the last act of the film is kind of forced, most of it is just perfect.

.....laugh yourself silly as Will Smith and Kevin James make up the screen's most unlikely comic duo since Schwarzenegger and DeVito in "Twins".

What this comedy lacks in cleverness or originality it more than makes up for with charm.

I didn't expect much from Hitch and, not surprisingly, I didn't get much -- but I was entranced by the film nonetheless, from a historical perspective.

Dating is difficult. Relationships can be tough. "Hitch" wants to be the Band-Aid that heals the wound.

Romantic comedy is to cinema what hot dogs are to cuisine - the question is only whether it's been prepared decently. And this one has.

Hitch claims to spit on the importance of coded language in relationships. But these are only nice asides; the film is too comfortable with the rom-com statusquo.

Proves how the occasional TV actor (or two) can, indeed, make a smooth transition to motion pictures.
