Hitch (2005)

“Life is not the amount of breaths you take, it’s the moments that take your breath away.” – Hitch

Number of Times Seen – 2 (14 Aug 2005 and 21 Jan 2018)

Brief Synopsis – A self proclaimed “Date doctor” learns that helping clients and helping himself aren’t necessarily the same thing.

My Take on it – This is a film that takes an overused premise and finds a way to add and inject some really enjoyable elements into it to make it so interesting to watch.

The cast is superb with Will Smith, Eve Mendes, Amber Valatta and Kevin James being able to keep things really interesting and unique in almost everything they do mainly due to the fact that they find new ways to constantly surprise us with things they say and do.

This film is filled with some really hilarious scenes and the most memorable one for me is the allergy scene which made me and wife burst out laughing because it was filmed so well.

This is a scene that will stay with me for quite a long time because of the way it was presented.

Both Smith and James are not actors that one would easily associate with a rom-com, but both perform above the bar in this one and make you (somewhat) believe all that is going on.

Bottom Line – Fun film that takes an overly used premise and is able to inject some interesting and unique angles which keeps it so entertaining. Smith, James, Mendes and Valetta are all superb here and keep things so entertaining while they constantly surprise us along the way.  Some of the scenes are extremely hilarious and the one that will always stick out for me is the allergy scene.  Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Kevin James made up all of the dance moves for the scene where Albert is dancing in Hitch’s apartment. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy
