  • Considerably heavier on romance than comedy, "Hitch" stitches together relatively few laughs but generates enough goodwill and energy to keep much of the audience in its corner.

  • 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.

  • Tennant loses tempo towards the end as he tries to shoehorn in sufficient rom to temper the com, but by then we've seen enough from Smith to know he can - and will - milk this genre for all it's worth.

  • 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.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this film. Funny and entertaining, with a great story and excellent acting.

    Very funny and smart, it's shot like a comedy and suffers like most comedies do because of it.

    I have seen a lot of crappy romantic comedies, When in Rome or The Bounty Hunter. This was on TV and I laughed for once. Will Smith and Kevin James are genius. The concept is great, the story has a lot of rocky plot points, but it smooths right back, I really enjoyed Hitch.

    Despite great performances by Will Smith and Kevin James its far too predictable and barely memorable
