I know it was always Paris that held the title of "The City of Love", but with this charming film, New York City could be a contender for the honor. Too often, Hollywood delivers a beautiful love story that can leave an audience yearning for such feelings in our own lives. But let's face it...how many of us will find ourselves on a giant sinking ship, members of warring families, or intellectually-challenged and living in Alabama? Hitch shows another side of romance movies...a side that's quite possibly atainible. Think about it, how many of us meet "the one" at work or on the street or at one of our usual routine stops? That's just one factor that makes this movie worth watching. Second is it's stars. I'll readily admit that I would have never imagined Will Smith and Kevin James teaming up (they're both actors, but their resumes suggest very different types of work.) After seeing this film, I'll readily admit I would have never imagined the paring working out so well. These gentlemen seemed to be acting the most natural when they were interacting with each other that I almost forgot it was a movie...in fact, could someone show me a script for those scenes so I can just make sure? Talk about chemistry. Will Smith plays a "date doctor" whose advice I could certainly use and want and Kevin James plays a love-struck and rather nerdy pencil-pusher who anyone could relate to. Playing off these gentlemen are Eva Mendes as a gossip columnist who brings respectibility to the profession and Amber Valletta as the socialite millionaire (or billionaire...I'm not quite sure...apparently her last boyfriend owned Sweden or something like that) who has her own insecurities. This cast tells their story against one of the finest backdrops in the world, New York City. Really, what other city would this really work in? The location and the cast's talents make this a truely romantic story worth watching over and over again...this time, the feelings you're left with afterwards may very well be within your grasp. Perhaps you should listen to Mr. Smith there. Most of advice seems to be very sound...especially the advice he gives to one sleezy gentlemen played by Jeffrey Donovan (could he show me that move?). There's just one thing that I'm not entirely thrilled about...it doesn't lose this film a star, but it does keep me up at night. At one point, Will Smith's character believes that his real talent is simply giving guys like Kevin James's character the confidence to get the woman of their dreams and suggests that this is no big deal in the big picture that is a subsequent relationship. I disagree...confidence is a huge part of it and I'd certainly like a "date doctor" to help me out in that department...and like I said, show me that move.
