DVD Review

They had a few featurettes with some introductions by Andy Tennant. For such a successful movie you would think they could have included more though. A commentary by Will and Andy Tennant would have been good. Overall the movie was great so Sony gets away with the meagre bonus features. Maybe they are saving them for a special edition down the track.

Plot

Meet Hitch(Will Smith), New York City's greatest matchmaker. Love is his job and he'll get you the girl of your dreams in just three easy dates, guaranteed! And that's exactly what happens when Albert Brennaman(TV's Kevin James, "The King of Queens") wins the heart of gorgeous society heiress Allegra Cole (supermodel Amber Valetta). So when tabloid columnist Sara Melas (Eva Mendes, Stuck on You, Once Upon A Time in Mexico) decides to uncover the secret behind the tubby schlub's success, she's shocked to discover that Alex Hitchens, the charming young man she's been seeing, is the legendary date doctor himself. Exposed in a front-page scoop, it's now up to Alex to try to save Albert and Allegra's relationship as well as his own. Which only goes to show that just when you think you've found true love, there's always a HITCH.
