Its fun having a broadband connection wherein you can download DVD quality prints of the newest movies and watch them, royalty free. I watched Hitch recently, and I enjoyed it Make no mistake about it, Hitch is a formula, romantic comedy. Yeah, yeah YET_ANOTHER_ROMANTIC_COMEDY !! There aint nothing you havent seen before; naughty boy meets inquisitive girl, they fall in love; they misunderstand and break up; finally the power of love prevails and they get together.
Not once did I find myself teetering on the edge of my seat, wringing my hands in despair because I was fearful of a disastrous outcome. But who cares? What I did find myself doing was laughing out loud quite a bit, while also trying to conceal the drool that would escape on the right side of my mouth whenever Eva Mendes would appear on screen. Woo baby!
The movie is pretty enjoyable itself. Will Smith's smooth. Eva's the hottie with personality. Amber Valetta does a decent job in the movie. And the real pick is Kevin James, with his fat_man_dancing act in the movie. Smith is the ultimate ladies man in the movie who realises in the end, that there aint really no formula to love.
My recommendation is that you grab your sweetie, accept that you're not gonna see any new ground being broken, make sure you have your yellow bucket handy for Will's big speech at the end, and enjoy a funny, cutesy, fairly safe romantic comedy this summer.
Hitch has enough laughs for the guys (and well, enough Eva for the guys) and enough romance for the ladies, for me to recommend it to those of you looking for a cute romantic comedy to help you celebrate a summer evening. There are a few moments that will gag you with sugary sweetness, but strong performances by Will Smith, Eva Mendes, and Kevin James help you overlook it.
