With a line-up of stars from Will Smith to Kevin James, “Hitch” is one of the year’s best romantic comedies. Will Smith plays Alex “Hitch” Hitchens, a smooth guy who is a professional date doctor. Nerdy Albert (Kevin James) comes to him for help wooing the love of his life, who doesn’t even know that he exists.
Hitch is known as a miracle worker for desperate nice guys who need help making that wonderful girl notice them. While working with Albert, Hitch meets gossip columnist Sara (Eva Mendes). He is smitten with her but finds that his game does not work as well with this pessimist who expects everything in her love life to go wrong.
“Hitch” is a wonderful date movie and will make you laugh out loud. Boys should listen to what the “date doctor” says because he offers great advice.
Anyone between 12 and 112 will enjoy this movie. Although it has the usual happy Hollywood ending, I still recommend “Hitch” as a new dating classic.
