It's a fantasy that will fill box-office coffers, but it makes for a movie that's a little too innocuous for its own good.

Hitch isn't a memorable date.
February 24, 2005
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.

I did enjoy the buddy dynamic between Smith and James, who puts kind of a cocky spin on the clumsy fat guy cliches. And there were about a half-dozen jokes that had me laughing out loud.
February 12, 2005
The movie's last two minutes, in which they all do goofy dances and have no dialogue or script to get in their way, is easily the highlight. It's the previous 113 minutes of plot that cause problems.

Looks like another love TKO.

Smith and Mendes are terrific together. He brings her game up so high you'd think she has had as many good parts as Smith.
February 11, 2005
Smith, of course, is so cool he can afford to pretend to be uncool; but what really works for him here is the interplay with James, whose inner-wild-man dance moves alone are worth the price of admission.

In my view, Smith would do well to tweak his career a bit. How nice if he'd find a small, serious movie that tests his acting chops. Can the action heroes. Scrap the charm.

Manages time and again to deliver familiar notes that it then jazzes up.
February 11, 2005
Here's hoping this first romantic comedy won't be his last. Or the best.

Will Smith has always had an easy time grabbing the spotlight.
February 11, 2005
Will Smith proves that if he ever wants to stop fighting screen robots, aliens or drug dealers, he is more than able to fill the rom-com leading-man shoes.
February 11, 2005
It's a good script, packed with knowing zingers about the game of love.
February 11, 2005
It is smarter than your average rom-com and boasts some genuine pathos towards the end. The movie certainly has enough commendable qualities to earn referrals from dating gurus.
February 11, 2005
Even though a little less Hitch might have been a better thing, the Fresh Prince keeps the proceedings from becoming too stale.
February 11, 2005
Faint praise it may be, but those looking for a cute date movie this weekend could do far worse. As could Smith, for that matter.
February 11, 2005
Director Andy Tennant and screenwriter Kevin Bisch establish a breezy tone and offer up a New York that exists only in the movies, in the best, most escapist sense.
February 11, 2005
A rare studio product that earns the goodwill it smugly demands.
