Smith plays a New York date doctor who guarantees men they can win the girl of their dreams in just three dates. Eva Mendes plays a tabloid columnist who ends up falling for Hitch. Conspicuously absent is audio commentary from director Andy Tennant, Smith and James — it would have greatly benefited the digital edition. This comedy adventure follows the antics of Tarzan as a young boy with Terk the ape and Tantor the elephant. Phil Collins supplies two new catchy songs, but the unfunny antics of a gorilla family voiced by Brad Garrett, Ron Perlman and Estelle Harris quickly wears thin. The DVD includes deleted scenes and an extended interview with Evans. Don Ameche plays a cad who, upon his death, heads straight to hell to tell the gracious His Satanic Majesty Laird Cregar why he deserves to spend eternity there. Ennio Morricone supplied the groovy score.

‘Hitch’ has just one catch
She willowy walks out of her New York City apartment building, and he marshmallowy is there, curled up on the street, shielding an adorable little fluffball as a car hurtles toward it. That and the fact that—as the eponymous film, released 10 years ago today and soon to be turned into a TV show, repeatedly insists—Hitch is a really good guy.
He may have an arsenal full of tools with which to beguile the ladyfolk, but he’ll put his weaponized charm to use only in the service of long-term romance.
Alex Hitchens (Smith) is a self-proclaimed “date doctor.” His job is to help ne’er-do-wells in the dating game stop messing up so they can find true love.
Such foolishness. Before arriving at a user-friendly finale that will appeal to both sexes, the Will Smith comedy contends that men need all the help they can get because, no matter how polished they seem, each of them has a geek lurking underneath. Some of the dialogue is great fun, some of the insights worth mulling. The story acts unwieldy at times, with dating-doctor episodes struggling to meld with a guarded-boy-meets-guarded-girl scenario featuring Hitch and a tabloid gossip columnist played by Eva Mendes.
Although smooth and stand-offish, Hitch gains fans with his earnest desire to help his fellow man. As many men are aware, vulnerability can be troublesome. That realization hits Hitch after he spots Sara in a bar and begins to run his game on her. Like Hitch, Sara has sworn off falling in love. But as movie-savvy person knows, beneath every sworn-off-romance type beats the heart of a hopeful romantic.
Try to imagine Cary Grant playing opposite the Three Stooges. He wins you over, it just takes awhile.
‘Hitch’ makes a good Valentine’s date flick
It’s not that men are complete idiots when it comes to women and romance, as suggested by so many commercials, magazines, and TV programs these days. We just need a few pointers to get us in the right direction—helpful advice on modern etiquette, grooming, and inventive dating in particular. If we can’t understand the modern woman, then what’s a single guy to do?
Virginia Tech Union is bringing the Dating Doctor David Coleman, also known as America’s real-life “Hitch,” to the Haymarket Theatre in.
The film, which was written by Kevin Bisch, features Smith as Alex “Hitch” Hitchens, a professional “date doctor” who makes a living teaching men how to woo women. Unfortunately, while helping his latest client woo the woman of his dreams, he finds out that his game doesn’t quite work on the gossip colomnist with whom he’s smitten. Alex “Hitch” Hitchens Will Smith is a professional “date doctor” who coaches other men in the art of wooing women, with the main focus of having genuine long-term relationships.
He is very successful at what he does. While coaching one of his clients, Albert Brennaman Kevin James — who is smitten with a client of his investment firm, celebrity Allegra Cole Amber Valletta — Hitch finds himself falling for Sara Melas Eva Mendes , a gossip columnist and cynical workaholic. While Albert and Allegra’s relationship continues to progress, Hitch finds it difficult to initiate a dialogue with Sara, finding that none of his romantic methods work on her.
Throughout the entire process, he keeps his career secret, claiming to be a generic “consultant”. Hitch meets with Vance Munson Jeffrey Donovan , a shallow misogynist attempting to enlist Hitch to help him land a one-night stand with Casey Sedgewick Julie Ann Emery , Sara’s coworker and best friend. Although Hitch refuses to help, Vance misleads Sara into believing that he has used Hitch’s services. At a speed dating cafe that Hitch sneaks into, Sara and Casey confront Hitch and cite Vance as their source.
Hitch explains that not only did he refuse to work with him — men like Vance are the reason why women heavily protect themselves — but that same protection also unintentionally makes establishing genuine relationships with good men difficult enough to create a demand for Hitch’s services. Hitch then tries to salvage Albert and Allegra’s relationship and decides to confront Allegra.
When she mentions how Albert’s quirks won her over, Hitch realizes that he does not really do anything significant besides giving his clients confidence and allowing them to get the attention of the women they love, and that most of his customers, particularly Albert, really were successful by just being themselves.
Allegra reconciles with Albert, and Hitch and Sara repair their relationship.
The date doctor, with one ‘Hitch’
Movie lotharios who break the fourth wall to deliver tips on winning over women are nothing new; Michael Caine and Jude Law make it look easy in both versions of ALFIE , But while HITCH’s hero shares their commitment problem, Will Smith’s playboy Alex “Hitch” Hitchens is less bracingly selfish — he’s all about spreading the love and helping his fellow man. Charismatic bachelor Hitch is known as the “date doctor,” and his anonymous, by referral only assistance to New York’s less-than-suave bachelors has made him something close to an urban legend.
Though he only helps men who are truly in love, Hitch uses his own tools to pitch woo a wide variety of sexy singles — he refuses to commit because he once had his own heart brutally broken. But Hitch meets his match in sassy gossip columnist Sara Melas Eva Mendes , on whom he sets his sights after he meets her at a bar.
To excel in the dating game it is important to be guided by the player and they don?t come much better than date doctor Alex Hitchens in short?Hitch?. So we.
News News. Still, there are a couple of things to consider. Instead of being a kind of reverse-pimp, Hitch takes only heart-of-gold clients like Albert Brenneman actor-comedian Kevin James , a big guy with his eyes on an even bigger goal, heiress Allegra Cole Amber Valletta. Just as easy as it would have been to make Smith play Hitch a manipulative player-by-proxy, James could make Brenneman a big boob playing out of his league.
Somewhere toward the middle, it just runs out of ideas and reverts to romantic-comedy mode. And toward the end, the movie starts relying on contrivances, sight gags and engineered misunderstandings to get to the finish line.
‘Real-life Hitch’ visits Tech to give dating advice
Have you ever wondered what true love really is? Have you questioned what makes a relationship work? Or, maybe, have you ever asked yourself how to approach that guy or girl you saw at a party?

Someone like Hitch, New York City’s legendary date doctor, a man who’s become an urban myth because he keeps his identity secret and only.
Skip to Content. Love conquers all. While some would say that the techniques and methods that Hitch teaches to socially awkward men as a “date doctor” is manipulative and creepy, Hitch makes the argument that what he’s doing is giving nice guys a chance to find love in the cruel world of dating, and he has the thank you cards and wedding pictures to prove it. Characters go through most of the movie as cynics who don’t believe in enduring love, or are too one-dimensional to be role models.
