HITCH

Alfie meets Queer Eye for the Straight Guy in this romantic comedy of errors. Will Smithís Alex Hitchens is a professional pick-up consultant who helps his uncouth clients win over their dream dates. His latest project is an obese accountant (Kevin James, from TVís King of Queens) who yearns for a blue-blooded heiress. All seems well until an attractive gossip columnist (Eva Mendes) starts snooping for a scoop on the date doctor. Much of Hitch has an artificially old-fashioned feel: the newsroom banter and the sappy dialogue in scenes with Mendes sound cribbed from a Cary Grant movie and out of place in the pictureís yuppie milieu. Still, what the film lacks in depth it compensates for in its well-played slapstick. Smithís improvisations are reliably fine, but itís the oafish James who steals the show. (120 minutes)
