Was channel surfing Saturday night and one of them was showing Hitch. I’ve watched the movie twice before and really liked it. One of the better movies in its genre. It’s also one of those movies that once you started, it kind of grabs you and makes you not want to leave until it ends.
The beginning of the movie was a bang, very intriguing. The dance-teaching scene was hilarious. Both Kevin James and Will Smith gave stellar performance. There were lots of memorable scenes and some moments were even touching (which is very hard to accomplish in a comedy). Yes it has its “Hollywood bits” but I think overall it’s a really well written, entertaining movie and very, very well acted.
A dialogue from the movie to end this post:
Sara: … relationships are for people that are just waiting for something to come along.
Max (Sara’s boss): Ah, spoken like a true cynic.
Sara: I’m not a cynic, I’m a realist!
Max: Or a realist masquerading as a cynic who is secretly an optimist.
