Hitch has some tricks up his sleeve, those are actually quite pro and actual tricks men use,
but somehow he manages to find the balance between the game and destiny, a very well made film.

A movie with a lot going for it, great sympathetic characters and a good script. Perhaps a little contrived and overplayed at times and a little longer than it needs to be. Nevertheless it easily gets 4 stars, the comedy hits the mark more often than not and it leaves you feeling good at the end. It got great reaction in the theatre when I saw it and you can't argue with that.

Alex "Hitch" Hitchens (Will Smith) is a professional "date doctor" who coaches other men in the art of wooing women, with a focus on long-term relationships. While coaching one of his clients, Albert Brennaman (Kevin James), who is smitten with a client of his investment firm, celebrity Allegra Cole (Amber Valletta), Hitch finds himself falling for Sara Melas (Eva Mendes). Sara is a gossip columnist and a major workaholic. While Albert and Allegra's relationship continues to progress, Hitch finds it difficult to initiate a dialog with Sara, finding that none of his methods are working for catching her, while likewise being impressed with her ability to see through people's attempts to make advances. Throughout the entire process, he keeps his career secret, claiming to be a generic "consultant." Hitch meets with Vance Munson (Jeffrey Donovan), a shallow chauvinist attempting to enlist Hitch to help him land a one-night stand with Casey Sedgewick (Julie Ann Emery), Sara's coworker and best friend. Although Hitch refused to help, Vance misled Sara into believing that he used Hitch's services. After finding out Hitch's true identity, Sara publishes an exposÚ, causing Allegra and Albert to break up and Hitch's reputation to suffer. Hitch needs to come clean and show his love for Sara to mend their relationship...

"Hitch" carries classic romcom signs, but yet has its own entity within the genre in my eyes. The fact is that this sort of role fits Will Smith like the hand in a glove. His character Alex "Hitch" Hitchens has that balance between being self assure and suave but yet within there┤s that unsure and real person he battles with. Smith handles that in a great manner and his cool facade breaks down the more he becomes in love with Sara. The same goes for the lovely Eva Mendes character Sara and she handles it equally well as Smith. Even if Smith┤s character helps his clients to make memorable impressions with women they like and want to start a relationship with, he does not help out guys who want to "Hit it and quit it". Meaning there┤s a love code and moral to it. I like that. Kevin James is maybe a bit like Will Smith, in a way one dimensional in his acting, however the character Albert is perfect for him. There┤s funny moments, sad moments, ok dialogue, chemistry between the main actors, solid soundtrack and a beautiful homage to New York City through the camera lens. "Hitch" is ok in my eyes.

Predictability is inevitable in Hitch, but that point is irrelevant due to the charming and terrific performances delivered by Will Smith and Kevin James.

Hitch is Will Smith's and Kevin James' best romantic movie. Hitch will make you smile and laugh. Hitch will show you the way to love. I would suggest this movie.

The only great part about Hitch is the story, and the performances by Kevin James and Will Smith, whereas the comedy is the opposite of what comedy is supposed to be.

Because of Will Smith it is an above average movie. I had a good time with it. It doesn't do anything extraordinary but it is a feel good movie that is worth seeing.
