Better then i expected

Overall a decent (though dumb) chic flic (and even funny at times). The pretty good performances definitely helped (I like Will Smith). 6.5/10

This movie is a good example of how even most successful romantic comedies can only succeed in one of the two categories. Hitch is way too easy and breezy. It isn't really romantic but it is very funny. This is largely due to Kevin James, who was somewhat of a revelation to mw, as I didn't watch "The King of Queens". I always figured he was another no-talent sitcom star but he is a gifted slapstick comic. He is one of those heavy set guys who is surprisingly balletic. He pulls off the physical comedy very, very well, and it plays up beyond that because he seems so authentically besotted and charming in the film. This is one of the better supporting performances in a comedy for me. It isn't easy to steal a movie from Will Smith, but he does, proving to be a stealth candidate for the top echelon of supporting comic characters.

It's full of romantic comedy clichés, but Will Smith and Kevin James deliver some serious and funny moments and helpful advice for those in the dating game who are trying to out-kick their coverage.

I met Will Smith once. Well, not really. But that would be awesome if it were true.

This hilarious rom-com is a really good Smith's originality with him performing a good date doctor helping out one of his clients, James performing his usual. (A-)
(Full review coming soon)

Despite being cliched really bad, Hitch is still a charming and surprisingly funny movie.

Fantastic although extremely predictable love story , with Eva complimenting Will things can only go well. Hitch is a soon to be classic and is a great romance. Suitable for viewers teen and up.

This movie just illustrates why Will Smith is a moviestar powerhouse. But everyone comes to play, to make a typical rom com and enjoyable film that has cemented itself both in my heart and in pop culture.

The flimsy dialogue and uninspired plot are just about enough to overwhelm Will Smith's abundant charm and Kevin James' endearing presence, making Hitch a fairly entertaining, but easily forgettable romantic comedy.

One of my favorite love stories, this movie is fun, meaningful and heartwarming all at same time. Not to mention great performances from Will Smith, Kevin James and Eva Mendes.

I'm done Breaking Bad (what a spectacular series, btw) so now I'll be regularly reviewing films (this means almost daily). Let's start our mid-summer reviewing craze with the Will Smith romcom Hitch - it's alright. One big con about it is that it's so forgettable that five years later I never hear people saying "Hey, I watched that Will Smith movie Hitch the other night!".
Alex Hitches is a "date doctor" who helps hopeless guys get their girl of their dreams - in this case it's Albert Brennaman, who has hopes of dating a local celebrity. Hitches eventually gets this but attracts the hungry media freaks, who are wanting to hunt him down.
Hitch isn't bad. Kevin James is for sure likable and Will Smith playing the womanizer is normal, but it's kinda forgettable. The film itself isn't awful, but it's like a lot of other romcoms and there's nothing really special to it. Hitch isn't bad for a couple on date night, per se.

Hitch may be incredibly predictable and often cheesy, the film still presents solid acting from Will Smith, Kevin James, and Eva Mendes. The actor present their characters well and portray fantastic chemistry, allowing Hitch to be the feelgood movie that it is.

It may tick some mushy and cliche boxes of a rom-com but Will Smith and some other reasonable performances helps raise this into a watchable movie.

Wonderful bit of lightweight hokum, entertainingly displaying how people are their own worst enemies in their prospective relationships.

I own this on DVD and Blu-Ray

Will smith maintains his on screen charm in this rather standard and predictable rom-com.
