...a facile, undemanding romantic comedy elevated from formula dreck by the considerable charisma of Will Smith

The premise is intriguing, and for a time it seems that the Date Doctor may indeed know things about women that most men in the movies are not allowed to know, but the third act goes on autopilot just when the Doctor should be in.

Men may be from Mars, and women from Venus, but Hitch hails from the planet GetMeSome.

...a klutzy, long-winded, far-fetched and not-all-that-funny affair that somehow flashes an unobjectionable charm when expectations are kept low.

Does everyone fall in love after the third date? In his world, they do.

Here's hoping this first romantic comedy won't be his last. Or the best.

the makers of Hitch - a film that overstays its welcome by a good half-hour - seem to be the only filmmakers in Hollywood to not know how to put together a fast happy ending
| Original Score: 2/5

Hitch wastes both Will Smith and Kevin James with yet another convoluted romantic fable

By the time Smith offers up his unnecessary race-against-the-clock mea culpa, Hitch's cupid's arrow has already veered way off course.

It's just too bad that Smith wanted to play it so safe and so easy when Hitch could've benefited from a stronger vision and much bigger laughs.

Under- whelming, and predictable cookie cutter romantic comedy fluff...

[Writer] Bisch... has a fairly dim view of humanity... as easily manipulated automatons...

A sweet, slick, streamlined yet, ultimately, forgettable ploy in the game of love

Hitch doesn't impress with its sophomoric observations on sexual politics.

Se esta comédia oferece algumas boas gargalhadas, todas se devem a Kevin James.

A little like being on a blind date. Bits of it are charming, much of it is awkward and several sequences plod along with the self-consciousness of a first-date stop-and-start conversation.

It's an equal-opportunity fizzle.

The sour subplot, in which Sara's dark side mistakes Hitch for a cad, staggers to a gummy resolution, throwing a wet-blanket reminder that romantic comedy -- indeed, romance itself -- isn't what it used to be.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Smith and sexy Mendes spar nicely, but they don't spark. In movies, that's the kiss of death.
