At first glance, Hitch may look like a silly movie about a “date doctor” teaching geeks how to wine, dine and bed good looking women. In fact, it’s a whole lot more. We find that the aspirations of Alex “Hitch” Hitchens are far greater.

-- Alex “Hitch” Hitchens

In Columbia Pictures’ sophisticated romantic comedy Hitch, Alex “Hitch” Hitchens
(Will Smith) is a legendary -- and deliberately anonymous -- New York City “date doctor” who, for a fee, has helped countless men woo the women of their dreams.

While coaching Albert (Kevin James), a meek accountant who is smitten with a glamorous celebrity, Allegra Cole (Amber Valletta), Hitch finally meets his match in the person of the gorgeous, whip-smart Sara Melas (Eva Mendes), a gossip columnist who follows Allegra’s every move.

The ultimate professional bachelor, Hitch suddenly finds himself falling deliriously in love with Sara, a reporter whose biggest scoop could very well be the unmasking of Manhattan’s most famous date doctor.

Click to enlargeAt first glance, Hitch may look like a silly movie about a “date doctor” teaching geeks how to wine, dine and bed good looking women. In fact, it’s a whole lot more. We find that the aspirations of Alex “Hitch” Hitchens (Will Smith) are far greater than wining, dining and bedding (as shown in a scene where a high powered Wall Street hot shot unsuccessfully tries to force Hitch to take him as a client). In his world, even shy firemen, quiet doormen, andin the main focus of this filma portly, four-eyed financial advisor with dorky dance moves deserve the chance to sweep the beautiful women of their dreams off their feet.

Click to enlargeSometimes the romantic comedy formula seems dead. I mean, how many last-minute-realization/mad-dash-to-the-airport scenes can we endure? How many quirky best friend characters? How many predictably happy endings? But still, I for one don’t mind seeing a well-worn formula done well—after all, formulas become formulas because, at some level, they work. Hitch works. It follows the romantic comedy formula well, and also manages to do some unique things with it. In the end, it’s good for lots of laughs, the requisite insights into love and life, some great dialogue, and hopefully, more opportunities for Kevin James to get film roles.

I know other reviewers at Hollywood Jesus have done this movie and to be honest, I didn’t even know I was going to be seeing it until last night right before I walked into the theater. To be honest I have to have one of the most unique perspectives and experiences of seeing this movie of anyone on the planet.

Yesterday was the day of love for most of us in North American, Valentines Day, 2005. My present vocation as a pastor allows me some unique opportunities and yesterday was one of the most unique I have ever had.
