HITCH

 

Hitch starts out witty and cute, and then runs out of gray matter real fast.

Audiences seem willing to put up with a lot for a good or bad romantic comedy.

They never even tell you how Smith's character became such an expert on women.

By the end of the movie, it was really getting on my nerves. Its not a total disaster like Wedding Date, but it comes pretty close.

As far as romantic comedies go, this one has it half right.

The first half is great. Hitch's common sense approach to love works for both clients and comic effect: it's when he falls head-over-heels himself that disaster takes place.

Not only does Will Smith lose control, but also so does the storyline.

Another average romance just in time for Valentines Day.

Hitch is a romantic comedy about a professional dating consultant who helps lonely men who need skilled consulting about their love lives.

I liked the idea of this date doctor's fantasy story that runs a little too long, but the characters and star of this chick-flick provided enough clever quips and amusements to make the movie work for me.
