Hitch – Filtered


The date doctor, Alex “Hitch” Hitchens (Will Smith), is on call and has just the right prescription, for a fee, to help introverted men win over the women of their dreams. In this romantic comedy set in New York City, Albert (Kevin James) meets Hitch and through a series of comedic coaching sessions gains the confidence to approach and date the woman he feels unworthy to pursue, Allegra Cole (Amber Valletta). Sara Melas (Eva Mendes), a gossip columnist for a major tabloid, has all but given up on dating and love because of the endless line of superficial men that have crossed her path. Hitch observes Sara giving a pushy guy the brush-off in a bar and decides to show her that not all guys are jerks. “Hitch” is a hilarious look at the dating scene giving hope to all those who have resigned themselves to the fact that their love life is permanently destined to remain in the ditch.

Dove Review

Will Smith plays the role of Alex Hitchens, a highly successful dating consultant. Smith portrayed his part with his usual unstrained and effortless charm and confidence. He helps teach shy men learn to approach the women they are in love with and let their feelings be known. Alex Hitchens (Hitch) is a likable guy, but not overly moral. In one unnecessary scene he is shown partially nude under the bed sheets with a female friend.
