'Hitch'
(Will Smith, Eva Mendes / PG-13 / 91 mins / Sony Pictures)

Overview: Will Smith plays a "date doctor" who claims to be able to find customers their perfect romantic match in three dates or less. Eva Mendes may star as a skeptical reporter who, while investigating Smith's dubious claim, finds herself falling for him.

Verdict: 'Hitch' depends for its appeal on the performances, and gets a certain undeserved mileage because of the likability of Will Smith and Kevin James. For long periods of time an unwieldy, excessively talky affair, 'Hitch' makes nerds and studs alike so noble that it turns the chase into a neutered game! OK, well, to be quite frank as I end this review, halfway through the movie blows up into a splatter of misfired gags, political correctness and unappealing romance. There, I said it!
