I am a bloke and I enjoyed this; maybe I'm too metrosexual for my own good, but I found this to be easy going, light entertainment. Yes, it is predictable (did you think it would end like Seven?) Yes, it is cheesy. But this film does exactly what it is supposed to do - it's a romantic comedy and it makes you laugh (it's all good clean fun) and it tugs at the old heart strings. There's nothing revolutionary going on here but if you wanted that then you are looking in the wrong section of Amazon.
What makes this film stand out is Will Smith. He is such a likeble, charismatic character that he keeps you watching and his natural joi-de-vive keeps you hooked.
This is a date movie or a night in with popcorn. Recommended.

If you are expecting to watch high definition, don't buy this disc.
All Sony Studios have done is convert the file from DVD to Blu-ray.
The video has not been remastered, nor has the audio.

If you have the DVD version, don't purchase the Blue-ray version.

This may have been overheard as a chick flick but this is really a great movie for everyone. Its charming and classy yet incredibly funny. Guys will love it for the very cute Eva Mendes and Ladies will love it for Big Will, The Fresh Prince. Both give this film a lot and its very well scripted. Definately one for a night in with your loved one or even a night in with your pals for a good laugh. Pop open the bubbly

Love this movie! Who doesn't adore Will Smith? Kevin James is fantastic in this too. Will watch this again and again, it'll be one of these movies I never tire of. Definitely giggled a few times during this!

If you hate violence and love happy endings then this is the film for you. Will Smith is a consumate actor who makes his character come alive and carries the rather thin romantic plot. A very easy going, unchallenging, enjoyable and relaxing evening is in store for you if you pick this one.

Will Smith is a favourite of mine and it was nice to see him in the RomCom variety instead of Action Adveture. This is a nice, funny film in which Kevin James (King of Queens) is his usual hilarious self. A good one for a rainy afternoon.

As most have mentioned in reviews you know exactly what you're getting with this film. It's lightweight without being too flimsy, its frothy without spilling over and it's funny without being hilarious. Great acting from the 2 leads, especially the gorgeous Eva Mendes who really should be starring in many more top class films as she is a great actress. Possibly seen as too beautiful to be taken that serious but she really is that good. My current nemesis Ryan Gosling is a very lucky man. Looking forward to the upcoming film The Place Beyond The Pines in which both star.

“Hitch” is a harmless and amiable romantic comedy that is well executed and extremely watchable if a little on the long side.
“Hitch” is the nickname of Alex 'Hitch' Hitchens (Will Smith) who provides a consultancy service with a difference. He’ll dispense advice on matter of the hearts for lonely lovesick bachelors who are desperate to make the first move on the lady of their dreams. He careful screens his clients ensuring that their intentions towards their target ladies are honourable and worthy.
Sara on the other hand is the career driven gossip columnist for a New York tabloid, always in the know and one step ahead of the rest of the paparazzi pack when hunting down the latest celebrity rumours. She and Hitch meet up at a stylist New York club where Hitch proves he can take a huge gulp of his own medicine by charming Sara into coming out with him.
Where the two main characters get their wires crossed is that Hitch’s latest client is the bumbling but cute Albert, who is pining after millionaire socialite Allegra Cole, someone who Sara is all too desperate to get on her front page day after day.
The plot doesn’t really need to be studied anymore, for this type of film it’s just about the right side of contrived rubbish but there’s several gaping holes of which no attempt is made to fill and it’s really just best not to pick too far beneath the storyline’s surface.
Will Smith is one of those actors who can charm an audience no matter how weak the material and with ample opportunity to dazzle us all with his beaming smile, good looks and wonderful patter in opening lines he just can’t fail to win here. The support, likewise makes a good impression with Eva Mendes coming over as approachable and friendly no matter how hard she plays at work and Amber Valletta and Kevin James providing great mileage as the film’s odd couple.
As I say it can be criticized quite rightly for being about 20 minutes too long, the ending sequence with it’s trite and much repeated formula, (“and this is my brother in law!” WOW – Really?) could have really been cut without any harm to the film. That said the couple of obvious slapstick comedy moments are quite priceless, Smith’s allergic reaction to food is belly laughingly good.
All in all a great film not only to watch but also to score many brownie points by watching it with your better half!
